How about I not start. How about I just say that while lots of good stuff occured on Friday and Saturday, this morning sucked enough to negate all of it. How about I just say that I'm a little worse for wear because of it, but I'll pull myself up from this and be alright in the end. How about I mention that I'm a little more fragile than I sometimes pretend to be, but I learned long ago how to pick up my own pieces.
So, we'll leave it at that. Those few who already know what happened, I'd prefer you keep it to yourselves (not that I think you'd go telling people, but just to be safe). Unless I look like I've come unhinged, don't ask me what's wrong. If I want to tell you, I will. If I want to talk about it, I will. Unless it looks like I'm completely not handling this, don't bring it up. And since I don't think I'm about to break down in front of anyone anytime soon, I don't think much else will be said about the subject after this.
On a less personal note, I've been able to distract myself with a rather bizarre little e-mail situation. I got an e-mail from a new student at UWEC asking about Wicca stuff. Now, it's been a little while since I last recieved an e-mail like this, but it's not unheard of. I thought, "Hey, no big deal, I'll talk to the kid." I mean, we were all new here once, trying to find people to talk to. So I reply. Now, after a couple of e-mails, I get a message from the girl claiming that this person has given me an entirely false background story. Problem with that, is that I've already checked the background on this person and all records show that their original story checks out according to school records and yahoo records (her e-mail provider), while I have nothing to back up this supposedly "true" story...
...it makes me suspicious. But it's intriguing at the moment. The consequence of this person's story is that they are no longer a person and now a case study. I've reduced this person down to a research project, and it's their own fault.
This ought to be interesting to say the least...
[ Update (9/27 9:25am): On that last bit, after further communication with the person I finally got the whole 'mystery' solved. Sigh, people who don't know how to be paranoid properly really shouldn't try it out... ]
