The journey that has come before:

The Land of the Misfits...

You, Dork! (Land of the Misfits II)

In the Garden of Dorky Delights: The Land of the Misfits III

Lost in the Labyrinth: The Land of the Misfits IV

Misfit Manor: The Land of the Misfits V

Lingering in Space: The Land of the Misfits VI

Stirring in the Swamp: The Land of the Misfits VII

Whispering Secrets to the Stars and Sky: The Land of the Misfits VIII

Summoned by the Sea: The Land of the Misfits IX

"He Hath Given His Empire Up to a Whore" - The Land of the Misfits X

The Footpath Beyond the Briars: The Land of the Misfits XI

GENERAL NOTE: This thread, generally, is not a "light topic/passive" thread.

I don't think the posters that frequent misfits are exclusionary, but there are several that know one another well (or as well as one could know someone over the internet anyhow). If you are fine with letting us get to that level with you, it will most likely be reciprocated. If you are thin-skinned or don't appreciate acerbic/dark humor, this thread will not be for you.

I consider the posters that visit this thread - friends, supporters and intellects. I feel fortunate to have them post here. If you are a poster that has a different agenda that significantly alters the atmosphere/community that we have so carefully created here, it would be a universal loss.

With that said, please feel free to post photos and ideas that inspire, things that contort and challenge conventional thinking. (Remember to use imageshack or photobucket to avoid "leeching.")

Heck, you even had first post.

Thanks for starting a new thread, KT.



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

Lady Poof,
Does it count as first post when there's a post above it?

I don't consider that a post. More like a prologue.

Absolutely...especially if you are a misfit...and enjoy wandering...and wondering.

I must confess when I read "krapposelli's" screen name, I read it as "crap-so-deli." No idea why. Kinda like I have no idea why D'Name says "Quirky" for "Qwerty." Think of it as an endearment...

How's the family doing? Did you explain it to your son and is he doing okay? Do you want me to just shut up so you don't have to think about it and answer any questions?

My dad got a new laptop from work, but before he could even use it, he lost it. Apparently no one cares, but he thinks it is in his office somewhere.

I asked my mom if she needed a new computer for school, and she wanted to know if it was white, because if it was white it would be an old one. "they don't make white computers anymore"
*sigh*

He just knows that his "cousin" died. Need to verify what the other youngins have been told and coordinate the lies that well tell them. I want to be truthful, but the rest of my extended family wants to sugar coat it for the kids.

He is of the age where he wants to play with toy guns and we are trying to make him realize that TV/Movies and reality are two separate animals. This would be an excellent example.

No. You missed some stuff last night in the temp thread that we had running.

That is actually best. As with anything, you give kids information appropriate to their age & understanding. As my son got older, if he asked, I told him the truth on our family members. We then talked about what brings people to that state of mind and how it affects others.

So noted. I was his age when my mom killed herself so I am maybe a little jaded in propagating mistakes that my family made. Thanks for the additional point of view.

Must have been the day for suicide yesterday. A co-worker of mine just got the same phone call about his step-sons' (plural) father.

No offense taken. I think I know you a little better than to assume that it was intentional.

Wow. And not in a good way, "wow" but in a bad way "wow".

Not knowing anything about your son. I am a big proponent of the truth to kids, but there are certain things they can understand and things they can't. With that in mind I think if your son could handle it you could tell him more details, if he understood not to tell other family members, because they can not handle those details. (If your son is a tween/teen, or mature for his age) I think that would work well. Also, after the funeral and grieving period may be a better time to address the issue, once the shock has settled.

I am constantly amazed at the concepts my almost 3 year old can handle, but at the same time, she is in no way ready to even come close to understanding death on this scale, let alone the cause.

KtC said everything I wanted to say, but I couldn't find a way to say it concisely and coherently so I just deleted it. With your unfortunate experience in this area, I think you would especially know best on how to help your son through this.

Fen's a whack-a-doo.

Truly.

It is November 1st and I have received my first Christmas card of the "season." Yes, from Fen.

Thanks.

Oh...and there was extra postage necessary. The postman left me the following note. I will put the change in the mailbox tomorrow.



Too freakin' funny.
