The Lounge How do you get over being dumped by a friend? *long read* Jun 19 2012

I know someone this happened to recently.  She had this friend, and all of a sudden she quit talking to her, quit exchanging text messages, unfriended her on FB, the whole bit.  Then, out of nowhere, the ex-friend wrote the girl I know an email.  And in the email, she explained to the girl I know that she's clingy, she fixates on her, and that she just got burned out.  So, the girl I know at least got closure from it, and wrote the other girl a response saying she appreciated her letter and to have a nice life.  And that was it.

Your friend has probably moved onto other things.  Interests change in life, and that's happened to me on a number of occasions.  Maybe she made a new friend, and just can't handle more than one person at once.  

If you run into her, just say hi, and be cordial.  That's all you have to do.  Do not initiate conversation with her.  

Seek out others to be friends with in the meanwhile.  You will slowly be able to move on.

I would like to join this challenge.  I need it, big time.  Hopefully this will be the one to get me back into the swing of my diet.  I have been battling stress eating recently as well as depression.  The motivation to eat right and exercise has not been there.

Rode 25 miles yesterday.  It got up to 90, but the humidity was very low.  Almost too low for my liking.    


I walked just over 12 miles yesterday.  About 2,800 feet in elevation gain.

I gained (according to mapmyride.com) 226 feet of elevation.  Around 9 feet per mile.  The biggest hill was moving up to a berm.

I have like twenty friend requests from people in highschool that I've ignored.  I'd have kept in touch if they were actual friends. 

Well, people lose touch.  I friended a guy I went to school with about a year ago.  Nothing bad ever happened, he just left and joined the Army.  We've hung out a few times.

Speaking of FB, got a friend request a few days ago from a girl I knew in HS.  Wasn't exactly tops on my list of people I thought would lob me a request, but I have to say it was kinda cool.  It's funny.  You never know who remembers you after 16 years.  


Maybe it just took her 16 years to get through the line ahead of you:p

 

Heh.  Maybe.  

We had PE at the same time, and she always hung around this guy I played hacky sack with.  I don't remember her ever playing, though.  She always rolled her eyes at my jokes, stuff like that.  Maybe she liked me.

My problem with timeline is I miss so many status updates from people I find interesting, pictures, stuff like that.

I think Facebook is yesterday.  It's pretty much already jumped the shake.  As soon as a viable alternative comes alone it will be living on Myspace street with the other retired social networks.  Twitter seems to be gaining in popularity.

I used that term to describe FB just a few days ago.  The shark moment was the new Timeline feature.  I like the timeline concept, but it's just too clunky in practice.

Clunky is a good word for it.  I don't like the Timelines at all.  And the Spam, hate the spam  So far Twitter has remained simple.

The spam gets a little annoying, but I shut off the ones that annoy me.  It's not bad enough to drive me away.

There's a time and place for Twitter and a time and place for Facebook.  They're similar in a way, totally different in another.  I think neither will go the way of Myspace.  

Google+ is a poor attempt at competing with FB.

The snake looked just like another small tree root...until it started moving.  I have to admit I puckered up a bit when I saw that.  


You wanted to smooch it?

Whatever floats your boat.

My lips didn't pucker up.  Use your imagination.

I ran over the tail of a black snake yesterday on my bike, but that was on accident.

Salt on melon is ok, salt is a flavor enhancer.  Salt in draft beer is what I don't get.

I saw someone do that last night with their beer.  I don't get that either.

My favorite sweet-salty: chocolate milkshake and french fries.


Heh.  The fanaticism surrounding Wendy's Frosties and dipping french fries in them is one that I do not completely understand (and yes, I have tried it).

 I don't understand it either.  All I know is it's good, and that's all I care about.  

I like it, but cannot indulge.  Our local Wendy's is a craphole and I refuse to eat there.

My fascination started at McDonald's when I was probably 12 years old.  Our Wendy's here is OK.  It's our Burger King that really, really sucks.

Now, what I don't understand is the salt on watermelon thing.
