Position Open:

Best Friend.
Looking for someone who knows me and likes me anyway.
Common interests in books, sci-fi/fantasy movies, sewing and gardening.
Must remember the 80s, know what T.A.R.D.I.S. stands for, support the Browncoats, dress-up at Ren-Faires, and know that Castiel is the Angel of Thursday.

(OW need not apply.)

Finalists will be judged on their ability to eat chocolate and willingness to have tear stained shoulders.

If I ever wanted a 'best friend' again, mine would look pretty much the same.

Taking applicants.
Position: best friend

Understands my limitations but sees more than just that and likes me anyway.
Sees my good things and doesn't covet them.
Doesn't want my life...just wants to share in it with me as well as share their life with mine without drama or lies.
Has STRONG, REAL boundaries and is my friend...not pretending just to spend time with my husband whom they've been screwing behind my back without my knowledge.
Isn't a liar.
Hasn't had their kids taken away yet wants to butt into my parenting constantly.
Has a firm grasp on reality and even in a disagreement, still holds truth clearly in sight.
Preferably, said friend would have their own husband/partner and kids so when we get together for wine, chocolates and Dance Moms ( judgement), we have lots to grouch about and lots to celebrate.
Applicant must not have been involved in any kind of polyamory or being a OW or WS in the last 10 years and if they previously did commits said acts, they must have had a true "come to Jesus" moment provable with a polygraph test and background check and PI investigation.
Lastly and most importantly, applicant absolutely must not have ever dated or even known fWS previously to our meeting, must subject themselves to a polygraph test to prove this and must never, EVER have screwed or screw fWS! ('Screwing' includes any and all physical sexual acts as well as flirtatious actions and behaviors AND emotional entanglements not limited to texting, calling, whispering, gifting, taunting, hugging, and doing literally ANYTHING that could be construed as a come on or invitation or acceptance of same from fWS.)

But all that is assuming that I would ever want an actual, real life friend.
At this point, women completely scare me. I guess 'scare' is the wrong word. 'Hate' is maybe closer. 'Disgust' would also be a possibility. I trust no one. Not just because of this last garbage but because this isn't the first time...just the worst.
Oh, and OW said I didn't deserve friends, I couldn't even have any except on Facebook etc etc...why disappoint her? Nvm I had intentionally chosen years before to limit my friendships to almost nothing because my life was so awful dealing with this crap constantly and living in depression that I knew I couldn't give much to a friendship.
She was the last exception I had made. I don't really see that ever happening again.

Oh...and they must enjoy's quite important. :)

(waving my hands in the air) Pick Me! Pick Me!

I don't know you, but I like you anyway I love reading (have you read any Fred Saberhagen or Pierce Anthoney?) I sew my own Ren-Faire/Celtic Fests/Pirate Gatherings clothing (and my friends too). But alas, I don't know who the Browncoats are, have no knowledge of Angels and I bring home plants from the nursery just to kill them. But I'm sure we will get on fabulously, we have a lot in common.

That's a shiny want ad. I hope that works out for you in a timey whimey way.

Castiel's good but I love that Impala!

Brown coats - Pity about the ones killed off in the film, Mrs Reynolds and Jaynestown are my favorite episodes....

SisterMilkshake posted 10/19/2013 10:05 AM

The Impala is the only way I can get FWH to watch. However, he always laments that it is a 4 door. The really cool ones, of course, are 2 doors.

eta: Sorry, Gemini (<I am, too) that is a great ad. I would love to be your bestest friend.

When a car sounds and looks that good who cares how many doors it has?

headdesk posted 10/19/2013 14:51 PM

Ah yes, but do you know what GISHWHES is? :D

Why do I feel like you guys are talking a foreign language??????

"Why do I feel like you guys are talking a foreign language??????"

Eh? By the way, they came up with the sound for the tardis by rubbing a set of house keys along the strings of a stripped down old piano!

No Whovian worth their weight doesn't know that T.A.R.D.I.S stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space! But do they understand what the Red Highs are about?

I too would love a new best friend but the would also have to love Stargate Atlantis, SG1, Stargate Universe, Battlestar Galactica, reading, the beach, my granddaughter, gardening, sappy movies, old movies, and listening to country music!

Here's hoping that we all find our new friends.

So glad to know I'm not the only one who's life has been turned upside down by a former friend.

Now that I'm going to be single again, I'm working on getting back into the geeky goodness that used to be my life. DS-11 is going to be Doctor 10 for Halloween. DD-16 has a gown from the Ren-Faire for Prom. We're going to be the happiest little Fan-Family we can possibly be.

People here are so awesome. You're all my SI friends.

Twowheelsbetter posted 10/20/2013 13:54 PM

This trailer should cheer you Doctor fans up!

HeartInADustpan posted 10/20/2013 14:47 PM

My only question...who is *The* Doctor? If it's not #11, not sure we'll work out.
