So there were three major things in my life that were stressing me out.

One of them was having very severe issues with whether I was getting kicked out of the local group of friends or not. This has been resolved and things are worked out.

One of them was Geli. This hasn't been resolved yet, but we've both agreed we want to talk, and this is a very good step. So while it's still a bit of a stress catalyst, it's nowhere near what it was before.

And the last one was Naomi.

Now, I'm currently in the mood to list in excruciating detail every single thing she did that hurt me badly or that I felt was totally unfair (note that those two things intersect far more than they're seperate.) I won't, out of respect for the fact that I might be wrong on some of them and, really, if I went that much into detail I'd feel morally obliged to try yet again to get her side of the story, which ain't happening.

But I'll try to summarize the recent events with a small amount of very vague backstory:

(1) Naomi breaks up with me.
(2) Following an attempt of mine to get in contact with her, she tells me not to get in contact with her under any circumstances - she'll tell me when she's ready.
(3) A year and a half later, she contacts my friends (note: not me) saying she wanted to go to LotR.
(4) They relay her request to me, I tell them that I want *her* to ask me.
(5) She does. I think about it. I find myself totally unable to say "yes" due to issue #2 listed up there. The only other alternative being "no", that's what I say.
(6) I try to make it clear that I want to meet her in person before meeting her in a group setting.
(7) Conversation breaks down - she doesn't respond to a message.
(8) I try again and conversation starts again. I say again that I'd like to meet her in person.
(9) See step 7.
(10) She shows up at my house with no warning whatsoever.
(11) After she leaves without much talk between us, I send her a message asking her not to do that again.
(12) She doesn't respond for two weeks. Note that this is not to imply that she ever responded (she didn't), merely that it took two weeks to get to step 13.
(13) She shows up at my house with no warning whatsoever - uninvited by anyone in the house, this time, unlike step 10.
(14) I break down.
(15) In an effort to stay sane, I set up a meeting with her. Due to my current inability to say more than two words without nearly breaking into tears (and there's two people who read this who can vouch for this), I get a friend to do it. Meeting is set up, effectively dealing with issue #3 for the time being.
(16) I go home and find an email that deals with issue #2 and brings it to its current (much better) state.
(17) I watch two movies with friends, then deal with issue #1.
(18) I go upstairs and find that Naomi has cancelled the meeting.

Now I'll admit that this deals with issue #3 quite nicely, albeit in a completely different way. I give up - she doesn't want to talk to me, and so I'll return the favor.

I mean honestly. I'm *trying* here, what do you want me to do?

You give the Win2000 setup program the driver disk. You say yes, that's the driver I want you to load. Win2000 loads it, and lets you start installing to the RAID array, which it can now see. Then it restarts, as usual, and asks for the driver disk again; no problem.

Then it restarts again, as usual, doesn't ask for the driver disk, and, so far as I can see, tries to load the driver for the RAID array from... the RAID array.

In other words, having accepted the corkscrew from you and used it to extract the cork from the bottle, it drops the corkscrew into the bottle, pounds the cork back in, sticks both thumbs somewhere rude and stares at you.

Brilliant. I've never heard that particular glitch described so well.

From here.

JediCeleste: pretty much any cheese in a form other than block or arc-segment is scary.
JediCeleste: ...did I seriously refer to a wheel slice as an arc segment?
