Of course, I also laughed when Shao Kahn broke Johnny Cage's neck in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.

So, I guess I am a bad person (even if I do own a copy of Milo and Otis).

What doesn't make me cry would be a much shorter list.

well, ok...

Dead animals in the road
Abused animals
Mind-blowing orgasms
When the twins were born(my niece's)
When my 3 month old nephew was in the hospital
Certain things that remind me of my father
Most Tom Hanks movies
Tragic Opera(like there's another kind?)
When spungo loosens the ligatures

'Triumph over adversity' movies with really happy endings... unrealistically, fantastically happy [Smile]

Certain songs ( [Happytears] )

Thinking about losing people I love... just the idea of it.

Certain songs ( [weep] )

Other people crying... I can't see anyone cry and not cry myself, for some reason.

Knowing I've let someone down, or that I will let them down.

Panic... particularly stress related panic, due to work.

Frustration.

Being thousands of miles away from someone I miss more than anything.

Things that people say about me... I know it really shouldn't bother me, but it stings so much when they're hurtful.

Erm, as tongue-in-cheek as that was, you didn't cry. You complained and were mad, irritable, agitated, and disgusted. No tears, though.

Not in front of me. As I recall, you were angry at me when I was crying, even when I wasn't around Pooh, because he could sense I was upset -- although you were right, I was really mad (at the time) you wouldn't let me grieve. Of course, since grieving involves loss, I needed to focus on non-loss... sorry, that's ni ici ni la.
I do remember, however, that you got teary when it hit us that the chemotherapy was all over and he had survived. I expected the end to be more climactic... that the doctor wouldn't've just rattled off the next 8 years of visits and shrugged. I sort-of wanted a synopsis, and maybe a "I'm really happy we all could work together to make this succeed."

Eh, oh well.

I hope not, because Josh laughed too. [ohwell] In the movie theater, then stopped quickly because he realized that no one else thought it was funny.

He also laughed when Thelma and Louise drove off the cliff at the end of the movie.

I've been offline for a couple days and wow... I've been reading this thread and I want to say thanks to all of you. Some of the things that have been shared are intensely personal, and I'm sure, not easy to re-live, much less write about. As was said in another thread, hugs all around.

While I do cry from more traditional causes, difficult emotions make me cry. Intense stress, frustration, anger. People close to me often misinterpret the tears or don't understand when it happens because none of those things are about sadness or depression. I have cried at the usual things too, like sad movies, when it was feared that my son (then an infant) was epileptic, and so on. On the other hand, some things have not made me cry and that's surprised me. However, intense fristration and stress gets me every time.

I know I keep posting in here, but I just wanted to add...

I'm an aunt (again!). My brother-in-law in Eurrope sent an announcement e-mail and a photo of my nephew, and now I am all weepy over his sweet little face!

Congratulations! [Happytears]

Start a thread about it so we can gawk and coo and make little girly noises over the pictures!

Alright, my Skylie asked what my post was supposed to say, and now.... Ladies and Gentlemen.... A better version of what I promptly deleted last time.

Guy shouldn't cry, it's not manly.... J/K [Razz]
Seriously, I don't cry at death in general, execpt if it is someone really close to me. I view death as a part of life, and I know that I will see them again somewhere/somehow. Movies and books have to be really powerful to affect me. I have a tendency to bottle things until I can get to a “safe spot” and then deal with a laundry list of things at a time. It probably isn't healthy, but it works for me. Most of tears are shed in this way, talking to the wind that carries my words to the heavens, to the farthest seas and mountains and to the ones that I care about.

I too, like my Skylie, do shed tears when the distance between us seems to become too much to bare... but the then I realize that just having her love me, and loving her makes that distance seem minuscule, and I dry my tears and head back into the world.

Twinkie is the only thing I ever remember making me cry for real.. I used to cry, but, it was more because it kept people from bothering me about the fact that I didn't cry, because 'it's supposed to be sad' [Roll Eyes] ... Anywho, I cry sometimes because it becomes to much to bear, being away from her, or she says something that really hurts me, or I think about something that happened in the past... But, in the end, I always wind up crying for one reason alone: She loves me [blush] .. I've never felt loved before in my life [weep] ... I wind up crying myself to sleep occasionally now, but by the time I fall asleep, it's usually because I know just how much she really does love me [Smile]

There's really only one thing I hate about our relationship, and that's the fact that I don't like being dependant on her... But I can't help it, if she hadn't come along, I probably wouldn't be alive right now.. Then, on the other hand, if I hadn't come into her life.. Well, let's not think about what she would've done with herself, when I met her she had a lot of issues to deal with...

Depression and Stress, medically speaking, I suffer from both...

I'm curious... About what, you ask? EVERYTHING!

Oh that movie was so depressing. [Frown] I couldn't even watch more than the first 20 minutes before I had to leave the room. If I ever have too big a case of the happies and I just have to kill it I may put that movie in again.

But probably not.

Yeah, that movie was pretty tough. But the end made it all worth it. [Happytears]
