Timeliness, I have it.

So, everything is done and over with the latest kerfuffle of stupid people being insensitive and relishing their own stupidity. But honestly, there's more to it. The chick that did all the defending of using the name for the comm that was hurtful, ignorant, and horrendous is Mormon, as I posted last. I just posted something over at the book comm 0hmyheck that might shed some light on how Mormons really feel about the Jews. WARNING: could be incendiary for those that don't want to be reminded that the Jewish people have gotten next to little respect for a long time. I mean to educate, not hurt my lovely Jewish friends, so I warn. *gives cookies*

(note 1: I don't reply to all the comments over there. A) there isn't time often and B) they may be unrelated to the topic at hand.)

In other news, I lost four plants (purple oxalis and some annuals, so that's alright) but I was made sick to my stomach when I saw my weeping Japanese Maple. What was left of it. I carefully dug that tree up from my old house and moved it here, spent a week making a place for it instead of unpacking my dishes, that's how much I loved this thing. The whole top half was split in half. There's no way it could recover, so I had to top it and leave the bottom two feet. (It was as tall as me with wonderful undulating limbs of crimson.) Anyone who knows trees know this: topping trees is bad. It means it won't get taller. My hope is that the cuttings I took from the damaged limbs will take and I'll have wee babies to nurture. *cries*

(Note 2: the owner of the roofing company apologized and said how worried he was to work on our roof because of my extensive landscaping. And.... that was the end of it from him. O_O I guess that's what you get when you have a roofing company that works to make the final cost the amount from the insurance. *crawls under blankets and is sad*)

In other news, I'm writing missionary porn. And it is BLASPHEMOUS, so take that, church! So cathartic, writing this, I can't begin to tell you.

I need lunch.

Oh noes. I got a little tear in my eye. Your poor poor tree. I was SO hoping that everything would sproing back with the sproinginess of springtime.
*hugs you a little, then makes some tea and cookies for you*

I was so sad!! The others will (hopefully) bounce back, but the tree... Well, it may just get very wide instead of tall. *hopes*

Oooh, cookies!

And the thing is, it's FINE every where else. The other three sides of my house. !!!

I did rejoice in one of the crew cutting his arm up on my Juliet rose with inch long thorns. Serves you right, buddy!

love how he turned it around and made it sound as if it were your fault for having "extensive landscaping."

You noticed that too, huh? Gosh, I'm sorry I didn't make life easy for you, Mr. Roofer, by anticipating a new roof, therefore never doing any landscaping whatsoever.

Mmm, pizza! That's better than my chips and queso and a Coke Zero. :D

Are you, now? Heeeee. Anne, if I was in any way shape or form an active Mormon, I would be thinking my soul would be destroyed by god for writing this. \o/

Your poor tree! *heartclench* Those are such gorgeous trees, too, but if anyone can nurse a seedling to fruition, it's you. I still contend that you should get to nailgun a couple of kneecaps in recompense. I'm a knee for a tree kinda gal.

*coughs* And I'm certainly available to beta for your carthartic blasphemy, just saying. *churchkinkyay*

Oooh, I will totally take you up on that offer, missy. (Hogod, they are going to do it IN CHURCH. Um, just like a couple of people I know in real life, ahem.) It'll be like the Thorn Birds, except not! :D

Bwaaaah! :( I am SO sorry about your beautiful garden. Japanese maples make me weak in the knees.

As for your Misionary prOn: I don't usually read that particular explicitness of fic, but I'll read yours. Count me in! :D

They are SO HARD to grow here, because of our heat, so I was especially proud of this one. Waaaah.

And sweeet. But please know that I won't be offended if it's not your cup of tea. I never mind that stuff.

Not the weeping maple! No no no. Maybe it'll just be wide instead of tall? So long as it survives... that roofing company are dickweeds. Have they never heard of lowering stuff in a bucket? Maybe working a rope is beyond their technical ability.
stoney321
May. 5th, 2008 06:18 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, that's what I said above somewhere, too. At least it might get very very wide!

And I've seen companies tack tarps to the edges of the roof, then someone stands below holding the edge so it slides down and AWAY. Did these guys do that at first? No. *stabs*

Oh honey. My mama's japanese maple got split in nearly two by some careless builders. It looked SO forlorn for a long, long time, but some years later, that side has filled back out and looks stunning. She drapes christmas tree lights on it in the winter and it looks purdy that way, too.

::hugs and rocks you::

But the porn sounds fabulous. :)

hahaha, so far the porn is not materializing, it's all meta so people don't go, "What the hell is she talking about?" OKAY, BOYS. GET NAKED.

*squishes you to bits and keeps you*

I'm so sorry about the lost beebee plantses. :(

*braids your hair*

In other news, WHEEEEEEE, MISSIONARY PORN!

You should seriously have some kind of...missionary porn fic challenge, because OH MY GOD, THE HAWT!
stoney321
May. 5th, 2008 07:31 pm (UTC)
There should TOTALLY be that challenge. Would you like me to challenge you? :DDDDD You can pick anyone from this page. (I'm writing Matthew and Austin from that page. *beams*)

Oh, J, the treeeeeeeeeee! The Mr. kept trying to lure me away from it while I was surveying, knowing I would wail and gnash my teeth. It will be... fine?

I remain unsurprised that the Mormons never much liked us either.

I mean, why ruin a perfect record?
stoney321
May. 5th, 2008 08:15 pm (UTC)
The thing is, they think they ARE Jewish. Jews for Jesus, in a way. Oh, and the native American Indians are an old group of Jews with a penchant for sailing.

I mean, does anything they think make sense at this point? Of course not.

I, however, remain quite fond of the Jews. If only for the food... :D

Man, that really sucks about your maple. I'm sorry. Did you remind them they had 3 other sides of house to toss down old roofing? Or why didn't they ASK you what to do about all your landscaping?

So horrible.
stoney321
May. 5th, 2008 08:31 pm (UTC)
The Mr. chewed him out. The workers felt bad (um, after the fact) and got everything off down by the back of our house. HEY WHY DIDN'T YOU THINK OF THAT BEFORE? Bah.

If you kill his family he might begin to feel your pain. Yes? No? Poor tree, we barely knew thee and now you have been snatched away. :(

I crawl under you blanket of mourning to hand you a drink. Because drink always helps.
stoney321
May. 6th, 2008 02:11 pm (UTC)
Hahahahaha. That is clearly an "eye for an eye" level retaliation.

Oh, drinks. They cure everything. Like you've said, it's not a drinking problem it's a drinking solution.

Oh, I hope yours comes back!! Why do some people not get that others care about their things? Even if said things are plants? Wah.

May. 6th, 2008 12:43 am (UTC)
Oh, I'm so sorry about your tree and plants. Same thing happened to a friend here in town, only it wasn't even her roof that was getting repaired. WTF is it with these idiots (especially when, as you said, there were clear areas they could have used)?

And that other thing: WHOA. Though it might make a good answer when a missionary comes to my door. "Hey, I hear Hitler was a member. Count me out." I bet there's a fair chance we get added to the rolls -- a cousin of my dad's sent missionaries to the house every year or so.

It's like you have to pay them extra to get them to not screw you over. Um, that should be implied in the original hiring, thanks.

And HAHAHA. You should totally say that. They're not allowed to get into debates or arguments, btw. *G*

Oh, no. Your tree! :( Can you sue for emotional trauma???

Once I read Sarah/Heather (from Big Love) fic where Heather went on a mission and wanted Sarah to wait for her... and it was AWESOME. *nods*

May. 6th, 2008 02:14 pm (UTC)
I should! It should be allowed! *tearful faces against a rain-soaked window pane*

Ooooh. If you have a link, I'd love to check that out. (I have issues with some of the Big Love fic I've come across simply because I know how those people work, and it's frustrating when the author gets it wrong, then I get mad at myself for caring. *G*)

How horrible about your tree. Gives a brief moment of silence.

And I decided to totally ignore this latest round of stupidity because life is too short.

I'm sure your tooth enamel thanks you. :D

And oh, R!! My poor, poor tree. My hope is it will slowly fill out and can be shaped into something interesting at eye level or lower *cries* than being a lovely 15 footer. :(

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
