As expected, my comments about Parrot Fever offended my friend (?) Adam. He's clearly not aware that I've been ticked off at him since December, and the fact that he's only ever seen me more or less accidentally in public since December doesn't seem to have registered with him as anything other than a coincidence. Even after my big discussion with shadowdaddy and dagmar_b Saturday night, I remain somewhat in the dark about why I am so angry with him after he said he did not want me to use real names in my comments in his blog (he's svenbob at blogspot if you feel like looking, I'm not going to bother to link to it). My response and its duration are not in keeping with the offense. Ideas like "fed up" and "selfish" seem to resonate, but six months of anger after 12 years of being friends seems a little hard to figure out. Is our friendship actually over, and did it just take me a couple of years to figure out that there was nothing left? (And seriously, how did he miss that he wasn't actually invited over for Thanksgiving this year, for the first time in what, a decade?)
Update! Fer crap sake, Worthy Opponent gave him my work phone number so he could talk to me instead of flaming me. I don't need that kind of crap! I'm busy, blogging aside!
