Oh, Delete Key! How I Love Thee!

Ahhh, the beauty of online discussions!

Only this morning a lively argument was taking place on the Kingdom list regarding arts and sciences competitions. The darned thing had been cluttering my mailbox since yesterday.

And just when you thought it was safe to check your email, a new thread has filled out the list again.

So whatever happened to the first discussion? Did it dissapear into the sunset like an outmoded silent star? Was this new topic more new and exciting?

Oh, the fickleness of it all! The humanity!

Now, where is that darned delete key?

The last little bit of lemon juice was just squirted into the wound. I need to see if gmail will filter out particular people and not the whole email list.

Not sure it will work - the messages are technically "from" the mailing list. I will ponder.

I was considering posting a message to the effect that since judges were lazy meanies, I would help the complainers by refusing to ever judge again.

Oh, the happiness! Oh, the lack of event-stress! Oh, to go to an event and just visit, shop, and chat instead of spending hours with a clenched tummy, worried about how some stranger was going to take my three or four sentence commentary!

Oh, so true . . . I have a couple of stories when I went and tried my best to give constructive criticism and got a complaint from the recipient.

Sigh.

Judging stuff is a hazardous occupation.

The other thing is that, in my opinion, entering A&S competitions is no different from playing in a rapier tournament. You are putting your ego on the line, and that is really hard.

Some people can do it, and some people have a hard time dealing with it. No helping it.

But yes, oh, the beauty of showing up to an event with only your basket and the chance just to chill and socialize.

A girl can always dream . . .

Ah, but the Merry Rose is extremely ADHD - they've already moved on to another firestorm. :)

Luckily, I read my email after I get home, so all of the tempests were nicely encapsulated in their own teapots....
