we did meet off the forum actually. we had chat for awhile, and then i told her i was going to the hawaii show (completely out of the blue decision.) and she said she was happy for me, and really wanted to go. of course, i said YOU SHOULD! so she went. so did a friend of mine from college. and we also met pattip2000. my college friend and i were the only ones who knew each other before hand. patti and shannon hadn't met any of us, but we all stayed in a condo together on waikiki. we've been pretty tight ever since. it's amazing how complete strangers can just bond like that.

i think on another occasion cari (cruzilla) and patti drove up to shannon's and hung out for a weekend. then at some point shannon and cari drove down to VA and that's when i met cari.

when i was living in VA i met up with a lot of the east coasters pretty frequently, actually. they're a really cool bunch.



as for the proposal, shannon had just had a nightmare of a summer. her father had passed away. she and mike had been dating for 7 years on and off i think. then, one weekend he was over, they were at the beach taking a walk. he got down on one knee and asked her, right there on the shore. she's so funny bc she suspected he would propose to her that weekend, so she got a manicure for all her pictures.

it seems like it. i don't know her too well, but they seem like a cute couple and they obviously love each other a lot.

yeah...i lucked out and didn't have to wear a hideous dress. actually, i think i've been lucky in all the weddings i've been to so far. :knocksonwood:

I am going to try to explain some things. This is what you all wanted to know. It will still be pretty vague though. I’m sorry for that. I've never told anyone this.

I’m not like everyone else because when I was little something happened. I saw something no one should until death. It changed me. I have never been the same since. It changed the way I saw things, the way feel things. It opened my eyes to the world and its people. No one sees the things I see. It has left me fearless of death but I can’t find anything worth living for. I have a special purpose on this Earth. It isolates me and makes me carry a great weight of others. I know this is all very vague and strange sounding but it is the best that I can explain.

There is something else. I carry with me a unique darkness. There is something else in this body with me. It is something evil. It speaks to me in my dreams. It fills my head with terrible thoughts. That’s why I can never lose control because it could get out. You can’t imagine a thing this terrible.

So there is a taste of me. I know I sound even crazy than before. I bet some of you are even scared of me now. You wanted to know so there it is.

Screwtape, thank you for sharing this, and I am trying to understand this/you.

I just don't get what you are alluding to with "something no one should until death" given that you are an atheist, like me.

Thanks for sharing, Screwtape. I know that wasn't easy.
Whatever your special purpose is, I hope you get to realize your dreams and achieve your goals. Just know that we are all human beings. We seek connection and reach out to others. Just as we are responsive to you, I think if you have people a chance you can find you can have a decent conversation with them without having to get into who is right and who is wrong. We're all just here looking for, or following a purpose.
