    I wouldn't say so, but that's mostly because I already more or less subscribed to your point of view on that topic. I personally prefer monogamy simply because I'm the kind of person who gets really into one person at a time (though I think I could probably handle a well-communicated open relationship), but I have enough polyamorous friends that the idea of it being wrong or unworkable has never seriously occurred to me. I do think there are difficulties that are present that make it not work for everyone, but that's as far as it goes.

    As for the topic at hand, I fantasised about other partners sometimes when I was in a relationship, and I know full well that I'm more prone to "one-itis" than most people. It never struck me as particularly weird or as a sign that I was bored of the person I was dating, nor did I feel there was any danger of feeling compelled to cheat on her. It's a no-commitment, no-consequence mental change of scene for me, that's all. It was the way you put it that I found elegant, since while I know myself that fantasising about others never lead to a desire to cheat, I had no idea if that was the norm or not.

    I don't know -- it had just never occurred to me. It's a good point, though, especially given how many people fantasise about other partners and then proceed to not cheat on their monogamous partner.

    Re: the first line, I hadn't thought of it like that.

    Yeah, so who knows, we may have found another Earth like world. Or we found Bizarro's home world from the old Superman Comics...

    Thanks! I just finished listening to the press conference. Really cool. They say it is VERY similar to Earth. Same size. Similar orbit and distance. Similar type of star. And they think it is likely rocky.

    I agree with your comments on thought police and fantasy in general. Without the freedom to explore our imaginations we stop being human altogether!

    You are so kind.

    No, I don't.

    I'm so broke, truly, that I have to wait till pay day for Gromit to buy me an ink cartridge to finish copying off the final first draft (it is about 1,200 pages).

    I used to have something like it but we've moved so much, and radically different places, in the past few years, that I'm psychologically confused... I don't know any other way to say it right now.

    I have a doll but she is in another room; and I don't have fresh chamomile tea. And my crucifix is on the wall. And my manuscript is in 'part' only.

    Like that.

    Oh, and my iPod?

    I have it loaded with music but ever since a foster sister called around Memorial Day--she is the one who tried killing me, sliced through my frontal lobe when I was four--I've been on hyper alert, not sleeping well, and music I always enjoy... I can't right now:

    It's like I'm a soldier on guard, and no one has come to relieve me.

    I am hoping that tomorrow I'll start pulling out of this trigger-period, because a good woman, a 'chosen sister' will come get me and we'll spend time together.

    Maybe by doing that, now that this draft is finally done, I can start asking, humbly, for help...

    I'm not sure, you know... I feel very young and vulnerable right now.

    I know I'm in trouble, though.

    And I need care... the kind I used to give to so many, including so many strangers, neighbors, relatives--foster and other.

    It makes me feel less alone knowing you're there. Thank you.

    My favorite on your list is 'Fuck off some more.' I need some R&R badly. I wanted to add that over and over to your To Do List but realized I was turning it into my own.

    Your message helped me get through the past couple of rough days. Overly tired, challenged I didn't know how to cope with, and the last stretch of finishing the first draft of a long manuscript; a complex one.

    You touched me deeply. Thank you so much.

    Gromit is a push over with animals, and definitely thought I was too rigid, but left to him our animals would have eaten all their food in one day, and lay in a heap until hunger hit them and they followed him outside and ran for the nearest dumpster, friendly looking person or convenience store.

    Seriously, those of us with certain personalities often are exceptional teachers and animal trainers and such while maybe *cough attack* not being the best over all 'team players'.

    It takes all kinds of skills for different jobs.

    When it comes to training domesticated animals, firmness coupled with the right time for 'silly' is necessary.

    I would never insinuate I could do Gromit's job; and he would say the same about me and mine.

    So, you're cool.

    Gromit had to 'talk his way into the house every night' with Bosco, our Rottie; and Bosco never learned to truly care for him, but he adored me. Part of that was his being hurt by a white man too similar in 'form' as Gromit (he was fine with black, Latino, women...), but still, I think so much, too, had to do with 'security'. Like with kids, especially troubled kids:

    In the long run, firm and affection gains their respect and trust far faster and it runs deeper than inconsistency and oh well...

    Don't second guess happy beings under our 'care'.

    Excellent advice/answer.
    I trained some hard one, like Bosco the Rottie. Rescued him when he was 8-years-old.

    Firm, and switching up (you know the drill) on a walk, so he was prepared for me to change course not at his will... That worked well, 'and' you know, we have to convey it with body language, 'feel it' because they are big-time sensors.

    Small dogs, best some "can-do exercise for indoors": tennis ball fetch in the house, other games like that, for interaction.

    No surprise, when we find what they love to 'work' for, and we are the ones who are Boss?

    They play, test some, play, test a little less, and so on.

    Some breeds are harder to train than others; some individuals more so, but every dog (and cat) has what he (or she) will 'work' for, including a lot of praise.

    Great advice, Plot.

    Thanks for loving dogs as well as you do.
