It's time for me to do an update on some situations that I'm sure have no interest though are rather interesting in nature, if you go for the gossip of things.

I dont mean for this to turn into a blog post.

My ex called me not to long ago. I was at the Harvey Mansion (a irish pub built back in the 1800's) getting trashed when she broke the news to me that she is pregnant by the man she left me for. This is my ex-fiance I am talking about.

After all was said and done I left the conversation with the impression that the guy wanted to have nothing to do with the kid, which pisses me off royally.

She said something in passing that I'm sure she doesn't think I remember due to the fact that I was drunk beyond all belief. "Maybe someday we might be able to get back together."

What the Fsck! does this mean? Must she pull on the strings that keep my heart afloat in the sea of emotions I call my life? Must she torment me?

I let it go. Though, not her.

I got promoted on September 1st to Corporal. I stand true today as a Corporal Of Marines. A Non-Commissioned Officer. The embodiment of my beloved Corps. I am too proud.

Life is good, as it is Labor Day today, for most, and I rest my hat in the home of a life-long friend in Florida. I return tomorrow but had a wonderful weekend so I am not sad to be leaving.

For those who dont know already, I have orders to deploy again on the 2nd of December 2006. I will be gone for a year. Our return date is 20 February 2008. Math doesn't add up right? heh. It takes us a little while to get out of country when it comes time for us to leave.

Congratulations, Corporal Jace!

And as to your ex-fiance... I'd say forget about it. I hate to sound cynical, but she's probably just looking for someone to help her with the kid. He's not yours. He's not your responsibility. Yeah, it's mean to say, but she shouldn't be trying to take advantage of your emotions to help her with her mistakes.


Well, that's all I can say, except Congrats, again. A non-commissioned officer... wow, that must be a lot of responsibility.

As for your ex, as someone once posted here, Hook up with her for one night, do her in the butt, and never speak to her again.

Honestly, if she'll leave the guy for you, chances are she'll have no problem doing the same to you.

Get rid of the feeling. Hook up with her, do her in the butt, and never call her again. You'll get over it after that.

Or you could just get out some more and find someone else to lust over.

Druids rules of relationships used to be

1. There are no rules.

But as of now they are

1. Never, ever, take back the woman who's dumped you, got knocked up by another man, been dumped, and is now looking for someone to pay the bills for the next 20 years.

2. There are no other rules.

Well done Corporal!

Yaya must add her 2 cents of course. No need to do her dirty, throat punch her or any form of azzpounding (unless both consenting adults get their rocks off that way [Big Grin] ) She has managed to make her life harder than you will ever be able to. A single mother in the military during a war and a marine no less. I saw plenty of that during my years in the army. The worry, the horror, the stress and then being deployed on top of it with some flimsy dependent forms for who is going to take the kid while she is gone. All while she knows she did it to herself with poor decision making and piss-poor planning.

Love and desire do not automatically shut off no matter how much hate and hurt are thrown into the mix. So go ahead and acknowledge to yourself you still care for her even in the middle of all the hate, hurt and confusion while keeping your distance. Avoid any more entanglement with her. Sounds like she has a lot of growing and deepening to do. That tends to leave lots of wreckage behind.

Congratulations, Coporal Raven! [Beard of Peter Gabriel!] [thumbsup] Do not under any circumstances get back with her. If she ever calls again, just quote Bob Dylan: "I used to care, but things have changed."

Congrats Jace [Big Grin]

On the other matter, I think YaYa pretty much sums it up. Stay clear of your ex and don't let her try and use your emotions against you.

I agree with the others; I wouldn't give someone who already left me once a second chance. It means, among other things, that she's liable to do it again.

That's not even a viewpoint; that's Bayesian proability at work! [Smile]

Congratulations on the promotion. Here's to many more!

And to throw more advice into the mix: don't do anything stupid.

Congratulations on your new rank, Jace. [Applause] [Applause]

I will also echo what has been said before - whilst it would be perfectly normal to still have feelings for your ex, you must lock them away and not think about them. If you are to stay sane, then the ex must stay firmly in your history.

Good Luck in the desert. [Smile]

Thanks for the congrats, all.

As for the woman, C'est la vie.

Seriously though, it seems to be the story of mine (life that is).

Why Sci-Fi?

I would have to say Action-Packed Dramatic Thriller. Something along the lines of a 007 movie.

Again, this is just a me too post, but congrats on the promotion, and tell the ex to go piss up a rope.

It's cathartic.

Or the Dylan quote I've used before: "It ain't no use in calling out my name, gal...you just sort of wasted my precious time...Don't think twice, it's alright."

No need to be angry at her. Anger only hurts you. She's in the process of destroying herself. Go find a HEALTHY woman. Sometimes that sounds like an oxymoron, but I can attest, there are some out there--unless you're not a healthy guy. But even then sometimes you get lucky. ::-)

Think of how long it will take her to figure out how to even make that remotely possible...

The only way I could come up with to even try is to use a pee funnel.

With a funnel, a tube and a pressure boosting pump, it could be entirely possible.

I was thinking maybe a reclined chair and the pee while standing technique.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.
