I *SO* want you guys to meet Alethea, she's the swellest, sweetest woman.

Alethea said the same thing to me. I'm working on making plans with her for dinner one friday and including Kymm.

We'll see what happens!

From TeKay (we all know who he is, right?)

You're probably not going to want to hear this from me, but I felt compelled to write.

I'm glad you don't feel ashamed about the time you and your girls spent together this past weekend. That was YOUR TIME. Kymm, no matter how much she believes it, is not the center of the universe. And it's weird how often she'll say she doesn't think that way when she does.

To put in've met Kymm, haven't you. At least I would think that some of you have. y'all hadn't met Rob and were wanting to do that. What's so wrong about that?

It may be sour grapes from me, because I've tried to meet Kymm and actually wasted several hours trying to do so, all to no avail. ah whatever. I've had too many external forces controlling my life to add on another one like that.

I think it's great that y'all had as much fun as you did and she should have been able to take part in the joy of sharing it just like the rest of us did, by reading about it.

nuff said.

From Alethea:


Don't worry about Kymm. As you realize, you did absolutely nothing wrong and you're under no obligation to include her in everything.

I mean, I would have loved to have met you this weekend but I realize that the five of you have a special connection and I wouldn't have wanted to butt in on that.


Hoo-RAY. I was so glad to see that she understands. I know she's close to Kymm so maybe she'll talk some sense into her.

From Shannon of Betwixt:


Elizabeth, I'm sorry about the mishap with Kymm. That's too bad that she can't just bask in the purity and wonderfulness of your friendships with those girls! I myself read and felt so privileged to be in friendships like that myself. I think it's beautiful what you women share! Perhaps Kymm has not experienced this herself, but it's really too bad she had to cause guilt in you for having such a blessing. Thinkin' of ya, Shan -----

I love Shannon. She is so sweet, I want to adopt her or something.

This is from my friend Cathy, who is obviously biased in our favor but what she wrote is kind of funny:


I'm feeling an intense desire to write to this Kymm and give her a little unsolicited psychotherapy, namely that she has some personal issues with which she needs to deal. Otherwise nobody will be fucking happy for her.

What a complete lame-ass! I actually feel sorry for her in a demented way. She just is so very not on this planet and has no clue about how to act as a human being. And that is sad.

What do the other girls say about this whole thing? I think you ought to have one more weekend together, get a few dozen eggs and a multi-pack of toilet paper, and throw her a love-fest in the comfort of her own home :-)

Alethea really is so sweet. And I'm so glad that she wrote you E., because it means a lot coming from her, esp. since she knows Kymm pretty well. And what's even better is that she lives *in* NYC too and she totally understands that we weren't excluding her and didn't feel bad.

She's a doll. We definitely have to arrange to see her next time. :)

I don't know TeKay, but I'm glad he pointed out that basically "what comes around, goes around" -- I mean, here he is and he tries so hard to meet Kymm and she blows him off and it's not important to her. Why does she expect any special treatment if she can't be bothered? I especially liked his comment about she should have been able to share in our joy like the rest of our readers. He's right.

This is from Cioamhe (or however you spell it!) I understand her point, but golly, when is Kymm NOT dealing with issues?


I'd read Kymm's entries and hadn't realised that they had anything to do with your group having their girls weekend. (Which sounded like a blast, I glad ye had fun) I though the lonely entry was very touching - I read it as something any of us who are single and in-or-around the big-30 occasionally feel, the whole feeling that life is going on around you, and sometimes little thing hurt more then they should as you have no one special to share it with. I know it can be read the other way as well, and I agree with all the points you made. You should be able to make special plans for just your group without feeling bad. But maybe ... just maybe ... the trip happened when she was upset about something else or going through a bad patch or just plain depressed and feeling the whole world is out to get her. I don't know Kymm, or any of you for that matter - but as someone who has often felt as the outsider in a group I could sympthathise with Kymm. Although she may have had a hidden agenda - sometimes it may be better to give someone the benefit of the doubt. This isn't meant to be lecture-y or anything - I'm just hoping maybe Kymm didn't mean to be narky - maybe

she look sat what the five of you have and wishes she had it too. Best wishes, C.
