Lol, I guess my brain is hurting as to why you were "all  ???  >:("

It's clear you don't like this woman, but that sounds like a sympathetic "don't give up", even if she phrased it oddly.

It was the tone of her voice, it's not easy to describe but that made all the difference. It was almost like she was implying that I wouldn't be worthy of actually getting a job I would like. I haven't spoken in ages with her but it struck me as odd and a bit mean, not what I was expecting.
I'm sorry that she has had all that happened to her, I only hear bywords of what is up with her everyonce in a while and I do think that she's pretty brave with all the things life's handed her on a plate. And I understand that people in her situation can become somewhat bitter - it's just that she's barely an acquaintance of mine now, so I wasn't expecting the slighting.

Before the Miss America pageant there was an interesting Pre-show about the preparations and training for the contestants.  One segment concerned training for the Q&A.

That was when the brain hurt came.

'What are your views on euthanasia?'

'That's a vaccine, right?'

I think I know the type, actually. I have a friend who I don't go shopping with nearly as much anymore, because she talks like neither of us "deserve" things we actually like and should be grateful for whatever the store is selling. More than once I've dithered about an item because the store didn't have exactly what I wanted, and her response was "Well, you're not going to find what you want, so you'll just have to get something." And I'm like "the heck with that, I'm trying another store!" Stores aren't putting out goods as a kindness to me!  ;D It's business and I can give my money to someone else who has what I want! She does this with stuff she's buying for herself too.

Just because someone is offended that does not mean they are in the right.

Good point.  No-one wants to come down with a nasty case of life.

Life has a 100% mortality rate, we're all carriers, and everyone has it.  Obviously, this silent killer needs to be stopped.

Good point. I can see tone making a huge difference.

Right... I'm guessing BF must be fairly busy.  I just tried asking him, a Star Trek nerd, this:

me:  What is Star Trek V called again?
 Sent at 7:40 PM on Tuesday
 Him:  in?
 me:  Um... the subtitle?
 Him:  nop idea
 me:  Star Trek V?
The Cowpath to Trona Pinnacles? <<note: we're local to the area, I was poking fun of the fact that if you're from around here, you'll notice a small road into the Center of the Universe>>
 Him:  maybe
 me:  Eh, I'll google it XD;
The Final Frontier =P;
 Him:  ok
 me:  ...The movie?
 Him:  Star Trek five then
 me:  Nevermind

 :o

He must have been busy.  Star Trek V: Shatner's Ego Trip is seared into the minds of all who've seen it.
