    who am I kidding. I still have third edition (the older edition) twilight imperium and haven't gotten to play it still.

    In an extended conversation on whether or not either of us would make out with a ghost.

    So I pose this question to the group now.

    Depends on the ghost type I guess. An ethereal impression of a person yeah I guess if I've had a few drinks. Spectres or poltergeists like banshees or something more corporeal ehhhh.... that's probably a left swipe.

    I would absolutely get it on with spectral mist though.

    I will smooch any kind of ghost because hot damn we now have proof of life after death and I don't care if you are rotting without lips.

    If a ghost wants to smooch me then maybe that's their unfinished business and who am I to prevent them from moving on?

    Do I have to kiss the ghost via a medium, like Whoopi Goldberg?

    Because if so, then yes.

    I would do it solely for the power of the one upping anecdote

    For the rest of my life, every time someone told a story about getting ghosted by someone they went on one shitty Tinder date with

    I'd be able to tell them about the time that I hooked up with a girl and she left her sweater at my place and when I went to return it I discovered that she had been dead for thirty years

    Oooh, do you default to red? I've got some databases to update.

    Edit: For context, there are a lot of different versions of this folktale, and while there are always differences in different versions, one of the things I frequently see is that the color of the ribbon changes depending on the source. It's a very minor thing, but I find it really interesting.

    For instance, I default to yellow. I have no idea why, since my first experience with the story was likely in the Alvin Schwartz book In A Dark, Dark Room (Alvin Schwartz, in case you didn't know, is also the author of those Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark books with the horrifying Stephen Gemmell art). In that version, the ribbon is green, and green is the color I most frequently encounter when other people reference the story. You also regularly see black and red, or versions with no color specified.

    I've heard it both as red or yellow, but I think I heard it first with red.

    In my head that'd be a black ribbon

    The sexiest ribbon

    The updated millennial version is a mesh choker.

    Honestly every time I see someone wearing a simple velvet choker, I wonder if it's an abstruse reference to that story

    It's not really about a ribbon 'round the neck or a velvet choker, but it was still the first thing which came to my mind

    At a certain point Minimalism really chives my potato. At its most extreme it is an expression of wealth in that if a need ever comes up, it can be simply purchased without worry. Being a less than wealthy person means I need to have crap even if I only use it once or twice a year.

    (Not directed at anyone in this thread, just a sore spot for me.)

    I don't really see that angle on minimalism, myself

    I'm just tired of moving boxes from one dwelling to the next and never unpacking them

    And with digital purchases, libraries and streaming services, there isn't a need for lots of books and movies and games

    Some of this is from my divorce, I guess? When I moved out, my ex asked what I wanted, and I said, some books, I guess? My PlayStation? And that was basically it

    I had a house full of stuff, and I didn't need or want any of it

    Some of that feeling was definitely about escaping a bad situation, but it was also a bit of a realization

    So one of the groups of friends and I made plans to go out on Friday and do dinner and a movie.

    Then they wanted to invite one of their friends (who has a g/f who I don't really care for one of the people because she's made some nasty comments to others and myself) and I just don't like hanging around with them.

    So of course their response to me going "I don't want to have dinner with them, go on without me" was to freak out at me and say "fine we just won't hang out with anyone" because apparently the other group of friends didn't even want to do the movie.

    I said "I really don't care what you do" and walked away and went home. I have surprisingly little patience for fuckheads at 30 I've noticed.

    Whereas I just hate clutter.

  • JansonJanson Registered User regular
    I definitely see both angles on minimalism. Some of my clutter is due to growing up in a home where we never had x or y when I needed it, so I do like to save things ‘just in case’.

    But it’s also true that libraries and digital storage eliminate a lot of our need for stuff regardless of one’s income level.

    100% normal. It takes time and finding other ways to fulfill yourself. And eventually you meet someone and then you go "who? Oh Karen? Yeah whatever" and you're cured.

    Oh man FUCK jetlag. Usually we are friends. Tonight we are not friends.

    Also it's hella stuffy in this room, but I don't want to open a window because a) we have no screens and the mosquitos have been tearing into me tonight, and b) baboons like to hang out on the window sill and well, we have no screens.

    On top of that the cows are being total assholes tonight. Oh my God stop screaming, I'm trying to sleep.

    Having too much stuff and being able to see it all legitimately stresses me out.

    Especially in the kitchen.

    Saying this I have gigantic kitchen and a bunch of stuff in it. But at this stage I feel I have everything I want in a kitchen and when people buy me stuff in the kitchen which are just boring old one use things stresses me out.

    My dad bought me a wheel narrow like eight months ago and I didn't need one and it has been sitting unused in my garage since taking up space and stressing me out. While my parents go, oh you can just leave it in the garage. And my response is, I don't want to take up space in my garage.

    Luckily I got rid of the wheelbarrow yesterday.

    I've been lying here listening to the peaceful, soothing noises of the bush. Besides histrionic cows, something's been bashing at the kitchen door and shoving the grill on the back verandah around.

    Probably baboons. Or at least I hope it's baboons, because all the alternatives are a lot worse.

    Also shit if you ever DO need a wheelbarrow, you can just borrow mine.

    That's what I do!

    If I want one and I know it takes up a lot of space and I don't use it often I borrow one.
