Thanks, guys. I talked to my dad this morning, and he told me, "If this cancer gets me, it's not because I gave up." He's ready to do what it takes to fight it.

I always have a Lafes spray bottle in my handbag for re-application. I've had days where I couldn't remember if I'd put deodorant on as well.

I'm SO sorry. I'm not sure what kind of cancer he has, but I will send out vibes that he will recover quickly and with minimally invasive treatment.

I also love his attitude. Sounds like a fighter.

Oh and I'm standing right alongside you giving a big old *F*** You* to cancer.

Oh, here goes, because level of hyperbole is high:

Quote:
I noticed the thread from a Kuwaiti asking if there was anyone else from the Middle East on this board. I was surprised to find only one other person answer and that person seemed to have bad experiences on this forum similar to mine. I was so upset I couldn't sleep last night. I in no way meant anything against Jews from what I said, that Jews have influence on business and media in the U.S. I had Jewish stereotypes thrown at me as if I'd said them and felt like I actually hurt someone's feelings when she was trying to start trouble with me. I now know why.

To be told I think Obama's lazy, with the inference to race (yes I caught it) because I said it's a bad time for him to take a vacation - it was vicious and wrong. I explained why I felt that way. It makes me upset and angry all at once because I'm of a minority race and my mother is biracial. Then I remembered that it is a common practice of racists to put minority races against each other. I feel confident that this person was just one racist anti-Islam person though I was attacked by others too. I was even told here by others that they noticed it too. I'm not even sure what all I replied on the Muslim thread because of anger and fatigue.

I didn't reply to Sayoon's thread to Middle Easterners because I'm in the U.S. but I thought some other ME Americans at least may respond any way. Now I see there are none and I regretably see why. I'm not leaving because of the hostility from a few but I'm definitely watching who I communicate with. I hope those few people know that there will be more of us here too many to scare away with time. It's sad that peace never has a chance when it comes to certain groups, is all I have to say...

One, please don't spout off on things you clearly know nothing about and make it into a problem with the members of this site instead of the disturbed individual.

Two, the lack of response from one group probably has more to do with accessibility due to various factors than "oh, it's a hostile environment for us here". I doubt you'd find many members here from China for example, where access is often restricted. Or from impoverished countries. Or from countries where blackouts are common.

Third, Eilonwy has been a member here a while and this bias that you are accusing her of has never manifested. This is a ridiculous accusation from you.

Fourth, I doubt anyone even knew you were Middle Eastern (I didn't) so once again, refer to number one about accusing people.

My friend just asked me to be a bridesmaid.

I am pretty sure she won't get crazy.

Nynaeve, I'm so sorry. Everything you've posted about him makes him sound like such a great person and that you two are very close. This must be so difficult. {{{{{hugs}}}}}

Hehehe, I love this comment:

My dad's a tough old bird. OTOH, I feel like bawling. I think he'll be having his surgery at the end of the month when we're visiting, so at least we can be there to help cheer him up.

I don't know why I'm so excited about this Winter Break. I'm seriously working every waking moment. I hate it. And I keep saying yes to more and more hours. What the heck is wrong with me? Between work and out of town family visiting, I'm pretty much never going to see my friends. Which sounds obnoxious, but friends are important, too! *headdesk*

I have an interview in the industry tomorrow and asked my best guy friend if he knew anybody there. He's like the Mayor. He knows everybody and is just very well-liked and a regular Renaissance man. Nobody has never been more protective of me in my life or put-up with more of my emotional craziness than he has.

He responded with:

Quote:
You are a strong powerful woman capable and deserving of amazing things. And (that office) has nothing to do with that. Go in - have fun.
That's why he's my boy.

(He also comes from a family with a lot of money so I don't think he understands what it's like to NEED a day job.)

So sorry nynaeve. Your dad has a good attitude, though and it might help him live a little longer. Or so they say.
