Dear Dr. E ~

How can I get my friend to stop trying to insist I do things her way all the time?

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Lady Kasey.  I'd tell her it's better to give than receive.

And then demonstrate how that actually works.

Threaten them with violence, social exclusion and eternal damnation.

It works for religious leaders.

Ham & pineapple. Your soul-mate could appear at any moment, so best avoid garlic breath, imo.

Edit: A garlic scented dump in the morning ain't too nice either.  Pineapple and ham however is not noticeable.

It's called escapism, BM and nothing to be concerned over.  We all do it.

Escapism is mental diversion by means of entertainment or recreation, as an " escape" from the perceived unpleasant or banal aspects of daily life.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escapism

Plus, it's a damn fine TV show so why not?  I'm addicted to Deadwood.  I shout at the screen if Seth is fighting.  "He's got a knife, Seth!" etc.
Confuses the neighbours somewhat.  Hehehe.
