Was a fun chat last night.

Surprised how many of your people use awful language.

Thought this was a Christian forum.
I gave you two days before I said anything. But the fact of the matter is: if you had a "good time" on Thursday night, it's either because you have no clue what you got up too, which frankly wouldn't be at all surprising; or you're a jumped up little twat that's an embarassment to the people that raised you.

You started off the evening only mildly in your cups. Abrasive, but the world was playing along. You got progressively worse, to the point that you were barely intelligible. I took about two hours worth of foul-mouthed insults from you. I laughed. No ankle-biting kid is going to run me off with empty words, and frankly, I was waiting for you to pass out and lose a couple of teeth. But it isn't acceptable, either. Keep going on your way like that, buddy, and the wrong guy is going to kill you.

When you couldn't get a rise out of me, you started in on the other grown-ups. Couldn't get a rise out of them either. We stayed on for a little bit, chatting. I laughed it off and was assured that you have always been a respectful and respectable young man. So I said nothing.

But the good time comment was a little much. If you don't know what you did, now you do. If you do know, then your inability to rise to acknowledgment is a singularly black mark against your character. We've all goofed up the occasional social engagement, sir. The mark of the big boy is a frank acknowledgment. A frank acknowledgment and I'd not have held it against you.
Well goodness.


I suppose I am legitimately sorry that my own choices landed in such a way that you feel that strongly. I understand that the optics of the evening could've played out to that sort of black & white nature in which you described. I also know that this is an internet forumn and that we are at the unfortunate expense of not understanding people's context at any given time. As a result, i do not feel a responsibility to admit unto you, what you think was going on. It is not my responsibility to own a potential "black mark against (my) character" as that is (from my perspective), you reading far to into a situation. Zero hard feelings. Zero bad blood on my end.


Like i said, I had fun. Was making a joke about the language used as I know it was me :)
Was genuinely good spending time w/ you chaps.
I'm not usually available around that time (hence my 2 visits in 2 years), but it was good to see some old faces.

Hope most of you were able to get a chuckle at my whiskey self.
If you, like Hugo, were frustrated (lightly stated) with that, I'll make sure my 2018 visit pays more attention to how my language lands w/ you all :)




..... also, in case any of you care (or don't care), I woke up great on Friday morning and drove 2.5 hours to get my taxes filed by our CPA. Was abled to have our 2016 taxes filed on the same weekend when drywaller's took over our house. Was the first long weekend I've had just shooting the (context says I probably should'n't use my preferred adjective here) in 2.5 years. Hence waiting til late Sunday to respond. Love yall.

Given the lack of quotations, I'm gonna go on a limb yer talkin about me...

I am younger than most here, yes, though I find this accusation/totalitarian stance to be rather interesting given our lack of relationship.
Suppose it could be someone else (<99% unlikely), though timing couldn't have been worse between us given my fictitious feud with you actually bumping heads with your real persona just one day prior.


It is unfortunate, yes, that our public meeting (of which little context had been afforded to you) trumps what was a promising olive branch in which we were both tracking towards.

Will be here. Just as before you, just as after you. Will all be good.

I really need to join one of these sessions. Just reading the posts, I was thinking that it gives the word hootenanny a new meaning. Should be called hullabaloo instead, perhaps. But then maybe the urban definition fits. Still, it don't sound like folk music.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

The Council of Hats has met. The council has decided unanimously.

A thread has been locked.

Tonight is the night. I know of at least one thread that is in danger from the Council of Hats!
