Lady Astor : Mr. Churchill, you are despicably drunk. Churchill : Yes, Lady, and you are ugly. Yet, tomorrow I will be sober...

You got it, Mimi!

"Fragile. Do not drop." - Found on Boeing 757

I am aware of this. We are, indeed, all here because of a liking of mysteries.

And I'm not saying that everyone here isn't polite. Curtsies such as "Hello," "How are you," and "Good bye!" are given. I'm not saying people here aren't nice.

However, conversation with other people seems to be lacking. I'm not saying you have to become their best friend; if the opportunity arises, however, it won't kill you to talk a little bit.

It's time to try defying gravity

Dave - check your email

Dave, I agree with you on that -- that there should be more chatting instead of just "hello" and "goodbye". When I first came to MN, during the time I lived in California, I always made it an active point to try and include everyone and make people feel welcome. Lately, because my life has been much crazier, I guess I haven't been as chatty and friendly to everyone as I used to be -- so I'm sorry about that and thank you for reminding me.

I think another problem is when people use the common chat folders just to talk about planning the next gathering, or talking about the last one, it kind of excludes all the other people who weren't there.

I'm out searching for myself. If I come back before I get back, tell me to stay here.

You know, being the introvert I am, I'm not all that talkative, so... ah, forget it... :-p~~~~ I am quite the introvert, however. Almost considered antisocial by some people.

But should we move this to another discussion or is it fine here?

Well, I suppose it doesn't matter where we take it since I seem to have scared everyone away with my, er, antisociality. ;-)

Oh yes, you're like me. I get called antisocial all the time... why? I make sure to say at least 50 words a day! (But no more than 250, otherwise, I'll explode)

Wow, 50? I only managed that much when I was in law... ;-)

them's the breaks breaks breaks

actually Dave I don't see a real problem..

sure there are groups who interract more with each other but I have never seen them exclude anyone else from joining in. Obviously until you know someone better you are (or should be) more careful with what you say which could look a little standoffish to an outsider..

and Mimi I actually disagree with this "I think another problem is when people use the common chat folders just to talk about planning the next gathering, or talking about the last one, it kind of excludes all the other people who weren't there."..I think the fact that it is all out in the open INCLUDES everyone else in the topic which is a really friendly way to go. Would you prefer they made comments to each other as hints thereby excluding everyone else. Don't you find it annoying when people refer to something you know nothing about ? (I do it occasionally, I understand it BUT it still makes me feel left out ..but then sometimes I'm over sensitive I guess)
