oh ha now i get why that said “oh and moish.” it was supposed to come after the other one but it got posted first 😉March 29, 2009 10:55 pm at 10:55 pm #677727
just the pepsi comment which got deletedMarch 29, 2009 10:59 pm at 10:59 pm #677728
moish you sound very close with her 😉 Nothing much you can do if shes moving, shes moving she can be happy about it or upset but it wont help the situation too much.
*kapusta*March 29, 2009 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm #677729
wow lucky she’s not friends with you. anyone ever tell you you’re cold? i’m a guy and i’ve got more sympathy than that.March 29, 2009 11:12 pm at 11:12 pm #677730
Do you really think I’m cold? It’s not that I don’t care; I do. But it sounds like you already sympathized with her and what else is there to do? Complain for the next 6 months?
*kapusta*March 29, 2009 11:12 pm at 11:12 pm #677731
39, I’m sorry about that.
moish, you’ve got sympathy? Good, use it. There’s not much else you could do. I’m sorry for you, too. Sounds like you will miss her an awful lot.
~a~March 29, 2009 11:17 pm at 11:17 pm #677732
no. but i didn’t think practical advice was gonna help. not the day she find out she’s moving to the other side of the world and leaving everyone. plus she can’t stand her family. so telling her she’s gotta cope would just make her hang up and probably cry or something.March 29, 2009 11:20 pm at 11:20 pm #677733
moish what was she doing if not crying? Just be there for her, thats basically all you could do. (and I’m not too worried about her losing you; you’re usually up on Israel time anyway 😉 )
everyone like it?March 29, 2009 11:23 pm at 11:23 pm #677734March 29, 2009 11:31 pm at 11:31 pm #677736
kapusta: i gotta say i liked the smile. but this is good too 🙂March 29, 2009 11:42 pm at 11:42 pm #677737March 29, 2009 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #677738
hey it never made it through. wonder why.
sure she was crying part of the time (oh god) and yeah we could talk but you can’t live life over the phone. i still feel really bad for her. and there’s nothing anyone can do except for talking to her parents which is completely out of the question because i highly doubt they approve of me.March 29, 2009 11:47 pm at 11:47 pm #677739
yeah, i know. it just made you seem like a very friendly person 😉March 30, 2009 12:05 am at 12:05 am #677740
moish, no, practical advice won’t do much right now. The only thing to do is stand by her during this difficulty. It’s hard to watch someone you care about struggle with something and be the one standing by helplessly. You’re support during this time is really important to her.
~a~March 30, 2009 1:20 am at 1:20 am #677742
AOB, not to worry, I’m still the same friendly kapusta I always was!
moish, yes, its harder to be friends over the phone, but you have to make do with what you have. And if thats all you have, then take it. REAL support, as distant as it may seem, is still support, and is always helpful.March 30, 2009 1:36 am at 1:36 am #677743
yeah. well she’s still here for a few months so i told her to live it up while she’s here and we’ll talk about it when it comes closer. not sure she loved that but what else should she do? cry for the next 3 months?March 30, 2009 1:46 am at 1:46 am #677744
AOB, (can I try and get you to laugh?) now I’ll probably have to stop myself from signing my texts and emails with…
(Sorry, mod 39, but shes upset, and I can’t fight my own nature so much, especially when it’s a good habit)March 30, 2009 1:51 am at 1:51 am #677745
is it even 39 moderating now?March 30, 2009 2:12 am at 2:12 am #677746
moish, if you want to give her the tools to actually handle living in Israel, maybe when she eases up to the idea a little bit in a month or two, try to make her a little more open minded about the whole thing. for when she gets there, it’ll make the transformation a whole lot easier.March 30, 2009 2:35 am at 2:35 am #677747
Mod 39, I responded to your email, please just verify the question, thanx!
just for you…March 30, 2009 3:17 am at 3:17 am #677748
moish: shame your done with the milkshakes! about your friend that moving: i wish there was more to say, just you gatta be there to listen and sympathize! i too have a friend going through a really tough time-magnified a lot of times from what your friends going through! never the less there’s nothing i could either do, but listen to him talking about it & being their to support him through it! g’luck buddy!March 30, 2009 3:26 am at 3:26 am #677749
thanks kapusta 🙂
thats even weirder cuz smiles are universal but i can just imagine opening an email signed “kapusta” even if i knew what it meant – cabbage??? 😉
moish01: not that this helps now, but once she moves, if you really want to keep in touch, make an effort to speak/write to her every once in a while. i’ve had friends who i started out talking to & stuff, but eventually we lost touch because every day i just didn’t bother (& probably she did more or less the same thing)March 30, 2009 7:23 am at 7:23 am #677751
AOB, yes but you’ve made it clear that you’re younger than me, and I can’t think of anyone offhand who I text/email that’s younger than me.
Random: Do you remember I were sure you were someone else? Well tonight, she asked me for a username for something (not for the CR,) and I was about to say, an open book!March 30, 2009 8:56 am at 8:56 am #677752March 30, 2009 11:25 am at 11:25 am #677753
kapusta: i know, that’s why i said that. it would be pretty weird to find an email signed *cabbage* 😉March 31, 2009 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #677759March 31, 2009 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #677761
what do you mean it healed itself?March 31, 2009 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #677762
moish01: It means she couldnt figure out how to fix it, but it just started working again.March 31, 2009 10:54 pm at 10:54 pm #677763
auss, thanks- that much i was able to figure on my own. complete air head, i’m not.March 31, 2009 11:44 pm at 11:44 pm #677764
kapusta: that’s such exciting news! harray!March 31, 2009 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm #677765
that’s great, kapusta 🙂April 1, 2009 12:15 am at 12:15 am #677766
moish, you’re sure? jk, something weird just happened, the font just got bigger…
aussie, thanx!April 1, 2009 1:36 am at 1:36 am #677767
kapusta: it got bigger than before (wasn’t it already bigger?)?? or it just got back to normal & then messed up again?April 1, 2009 3:58 am at 3:58 am #677768
moish01: Your not? 😉
kapusta: Your welcome.April 1, 2009 5:47 am at 5:47 am #677769
Jax and AOB, thanx it’s very exciting, I can actually see what I’m about to post.April 1, 2009 6:35 am at 6:35 am #677770
AOB, first it got much bigger and then it got tiny. I hope it stays the way it is now, it’s good.April 1, 2009 7:41 am at 7:41 am #677771
i find it so relaxing, reading through old threads that are no longer on the cr homepage!April 1, 2009 8:59 am at 8:59 am #677772
kapusta: The problem could have been that you changed the zoom level.April 1, 2009 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #677773
39, sticking around?April 1, 2009 5:38 pm at 5:38 pm #677774
Moish, you’re off by 3.April 1, 2009 5:39 pm at 5:39 pm #677775
oops! my bad – you wanna play hangman?April 1, 2009 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #677776
