Drama King, Itchy Heads, or Church of Satan

Im torn about what to write about....Do I continue with my week of teaching experiences, and NOT getting head lice (for those of you who were concerned...no one was more relieved than I)...

Do I write about about my friend who is the king of all that is dramatic...for those of you who think that I am dramatic....ive got nothing on this guy...LD was ready to kill him last night while he was aksing for advice on my msn. (He didnt call or text her today by the way LD!!! Progress)

Or do I write about this guy, and the recent updates.....Yes. Thats the one. Lets discuss him.

So...we are all aware that I was looking for him for like 6 weeks, and talked to someone we know mutually asking to pass along the message that I was looking for "guy 1"...

Well, guy 1, after a year, calls me on his own. He had no idea that I had spoken to guy 2, or that I was looking for him. This was a FANTASTIC surprise....how insynch we are to be thinking of one another at the same time like that....

So we talk, and catch up...for like 4 hours. Things have changed about him, things have changed about me....the feelings, and the connection are obviously still there...Well some sort of feeling...we havent discussed the possibility of anything as of yet. We're still just "friends" at this point.

We fall comfortably into familiar patterns with one another, which feels so amazing, and safe and nice. But the entire time, in the back of my mind, i cant help but think of the way he used to be...This will take time to relearn who he is...i am aware of that.

But after talking for one day, and then randomly through out the next 5 days, we dont have much of a chance to get reacquainted....Things start to happen...they make me sad, and scared. Emotionally, I know how hurting this guy can be. We havent spoken in a year...and all of a sudden he's back, and its feeling comfortable...TOO comfortable.

There is one peice of information that he passed on though, that I found to be quite interesting. Hes considering joining the "Church of Satan". This is new news. The church,....of Satan. He has been influenced this past year by the band Alkaline Trio....

So last night...me and LD decide to look up this band and listen to what they have to say. We ALSO decide to read up on the Church of Satan. Cant say they dont have a sense of humor, thats for sure...

Check it out. Opinions please...what does everyone think of this....

To each his own...about the church of Satan.

I still don't understand what you're looking for from this person though. You met him years ago while he was in town for a month at a conference. He moved back to a different province and you've not seen him since, just talked on the phone and such. You lost contact with one another and now here he is after not talking for a year. Other than a friendship if you so decide, what could you possibly be looking for?

LOL...you already know the answer to that question. Friendship. Wierdo.

I am also looking for weirdos.

The church of Satan seems good and original - only the good parts aren't original and the original parts aren't good - and wrapped them in an unfortunate and deliberately provocitive name. Seems like something you join out of a sense of rebellion or shock, as it seems less like a formilized religion and more like a humanistic philosophy.

I personally would be a bit wary as the appeal (in my humble estimation) is derived more from the name than the tenents of the philosophy.

But that is just me, and I am someone with an over developed sense of semantics. (Also as a jew coming from a religion without any real concept of a Satan or Lucifer or hell even).

I got the same impression as amichai when I first read about the Church of Satan a few years back...

Anytime I see someone online that claims to be into the 'Church of Satan' or 'Satanism', ESPECIALLY if they're into horror and the hollywood idea of 'Satanism', I automatically figure them for a poseur.

You want me to think you're into devil worship and human sacrifice? And you say you're NOT 15 anymore?

Grow up, beefhead.

Yuh-huh, I don't believe that most 'Satanists' have actually read anything about the actual theories and whatnot. It's like taking a philosophy course... wrapped in a shocking name to get the kiddies in.

Some things take time. Emotions are complicated. When there is past baggage, it's doubly so. Be patient but also keep at it if it matters to you and you think he is worth it.

Church of Satan huh?
That scares me.

Lice???

Princess Pessimism said...

Amichai - You make a valid point, and I have actually just read up on satanism very recently, and have found that I quite agree with a few of their philosophies, which I was surprised about. But nevertheless, im intriuged by the idea, I still have to do more research to gain a well rounded balanced opinion.

Bleph - Poser?? Really? See, I dont know if I agree with that...I feel that these decisions are important ones, and that some people may be easily influenced by others, but if the values truely move them, and speak to them as individuals, there's nothing really poserish about it.

Princess Pessimism said...

Natalia - :o) He is.

Berly - Its not scary for me so much as not understood.

Steve - LOL..im not the least bit surprised.

Big Ben said...

Church of Satan - I'm not going to read about them, I'll just make the noise: KOO-KOO!

JUst bang him and move on.

Princess Pessimism said...

BEN - Come on...youve never met anyone with different interests than you?? I find people like that wonderfully interesting....if we were all the same, it would suck.

So now that it's a new year we aren't cutting out drama any more?
