Life Is Sometimes Like A Kurosawa Film

One of the interesting things about blogging is how reading multiple blogs can be very Rashomon-esque.

Today I am trying to follow links from one site, through many sites, leading back to my own. I have know idea where I will be going or what I will see, but I expect it to be quite a journey. I'm going to start with one of the greatest linkers I know - ... Read More

I dont know if it's Rashomon-esque but its certainly very Alexandria Quartet-like.
The question is, though, which character are you?

you mean the sam story with several different points of view, actually creating several different stories? did alex post on this event or did you? am i following this correctly?

my head is spinning..who started this? what's going on? aack!

Ugh. Did you know she had a blog?

[hoping Paul doesn't mind if I comment on this here]

Hubs - What I think Paul is saying (and correct me if I'm wrong) is that he's read both Deb's and my accounts of what happened (not just the time Deb went out with Paul and its aftermath - I haven't written specifically about that), plus of course he has own thoughts on what happened, so when you put everything together and see these different viewpoints, it might have kind of a Rashomon-esque feel to it. (That being said, I've never seen the movie, so I might be talking out of my ass here.)

This would all have been much simpler if we didn't all have blogs, I think.

OK, I'll shut up now.

Alex gets it in one.

Yes, I've been reading Deb, Alex and Mark's blogs. Quite interesting to get all the points of view. And now you. Fabulous.
But if you want me to buy you things from your wishlist -- pray tell, when is your birthday?

got it. thanks for the clarification Alex. And Wendy, let us not forget about Zeke either.

Lady Crumpet, I knew, and it's a really good one at that.

Well, at least everyone seems to be getting along. Or, if not, at least not getting along in a very civilized manner.

Well, we are rather civilized around these parts in most cases, anyway...

It's great that everyone's all c'est la vie, this being a relative molehill situation. I still don't appreciate that Paul had the bad luck to be this woman's test subject while she sorted things out for herself. She seems nice, seems decent enough to feel badly about the whole thing. These things happen. But she still did wrong by Paul, no matter how it's qualified.

The flip side is that if it hadn't been such a good time, then perhaps Deb would have not come to her epiphany so quickly nor with such force.

Consider my ego to be collateral damage.

How much simpler life would be if we all didn't have blogs, yes. Or if we maintained strict divisions between our blogs and the seamier parts of our personal lives. Far more boring, yes, but simpler.

Lemme know when you wanna buy me a drink, P-Dog. Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving Day-After.

Well, to stay on the positive flip side, you're clearly capable of showing a gal a good time. And you're in a town where the single man/single woman ratio is highly in your favor. Go forth and date, young man!
