Or how I realise that for some strange reason, the computers @MPH, where I work, for some reason do not allow me to post in GeminianEyes. Gah.

Alright, enough with that.

Today's theme is the insanity that is family, and how one of your blood can quite easily backstab you if he is desperate enough.

My family has been fighting itself for a long time because we take sides. Now, on one side, I think it's normal. It's what large families like ours will do. However, I draw the line at playing and brainwashing your own parents.

For those who do not know, my grandparents, have for the longest time, put the deed of the house in my godfather's hands. According to my grandmother, the house is to go to my godfather after her death (my grandfather passed away earlier this year). However, because of the bad memories, my grandmother decided to sell the house and then, after the house was sold, scolded my godfather for doing so.

I suspect that someone has complained to her and tried to stop her selling the house. Because according to him, my grandparents had promised the house to him, but though he's the eldest son, it has always been my godfather who has taken care of my grandparents. And my grandmother has said more than once to me that the house is going to my godfather.

See why I'm pissed off?

I look at Bloglines and I see many of my friends getting on with their lives. Those who've had upheavals in the past few months seem to be adjusting well, with or without the people in their lives that they love or cared about. Before, when they were going through it all, all I could do was stare at the screen and read, helpless to offer anything more than typed words of comfort. At the end of the day, that's all I can do. Because an ocean separates us.

I don't know most of them. Have never met them in person. But still, at the end of the day, I still care for them. Why? I don't know. It's ironic that I met them through a role-playing site, that I met and interacted for them in a place that encourages you to be anything but yourself. Yet I find them more fascinating when they're themselves rather than the characters they play.

Why is that? I don't know. I really don't. However, I suspect that it's because with them, they're real people. They're not made-up. I have this thing for interacting with RL people rather than characters, because they're just so fascinating.

No matter what, nothing compares to Real Life, no matter how shitty it can get. It's random, insane, but ultimately, it's where we live.

Leslie, Kyle, Geoff, Mel, to everyone on Sages... *Raises glass* Happy Anniversary.

And yes, I know this post is VERY late.^_^
