Current Mood: curious curious
Based on something someone said about me in a conversation (you, who are probably reading and know who you are, this isn't bad or meant to reflect on you in any way, I'm just curious about my other friends)...

Am I a mystery? Do you think you grok me, or am I unfathomable in my person-ness.

Feel free to answer, I'm not going to hold anyone's opinion against them or anything. If I'm mysterious, I'm mysterious! If I'm dull and boring and predictable, then so be it. If I exist in between, then maybe I'm existential? :)

touché

I will exempt myself from answering... due to lack of familiarity with the subject (you)

But - I will turn the question back around to you, do you endeavor to be a bit of an enigma to your friends, or do you hope that the majority opinion is that you are an open book ("grokish")? What do you suspect (or hope, or fear?) those who know you best would answer...

PS you are missing a tag in your embedded html

Re: touché

Not a tag, I used a " when I shouldn't have, and didn't think about it. Fixed, and thank you.

And hrm. I'd like to be a bit of both, I guess. Neither completely mysterious (especially not that.), but I don't want to be boring and predictable either. I mean, that's probably fairly normal?

Though some people would like to be completely mysterious, I wager. I just want to be understood. =)

wonder where I've seen that statement lately??? :)

I think I understand you because we're so much alike in so many ways, yet there's always going to be that part of you that is a mystery to me. Mysteries are good things though, as they keep you always in search of another clue, something else you didn't know before. I accept that there are things about you that I will never completely understand and that's ok. Wouldn't it be boring if someone did completely and totally understand and know us? We'd have no way to surprise them, they'd know what we were going to say before we said it, thus ruining the surprise, and eventually it would all go to hell because we'd stop feeling like a human and more like a machine.

Did that even come close to answering you or did I just randomly throw up verbally all over your comment section?

*gets out the bucket* At least it was good. :) And yes, you did answer. Just obliquely, and that's okay by me.

yay!! I was good!!!

And apparently, I'm almost always oblique. Wonder if that's why my skirts just never seem to hang right?

I've never found you particularly mysterious. Of course, that might just mean I'm missing a lot, but you've never said or done anything that had me wondering what the fuck was going on in your head, nor have your feelings ever been anything less than plain as day to me. That doesn't make you dull, boring, or predictable, but I never thought of those as the opposite from mysterious anyway. I think you've been reading too many fantasy novels. :)

ok lets seee...
well.... i dont think your an open book .... you just thing in ways i dont really understand... do i think you are trying to myusterious no.... i know you wnat understanding and compassion and comradery .... i think those are the main things .... your endearing... thats for sure.... we personally have a lot of things in common.... and think a like on a vast number of things... but though we might hold the same oppinions i think we arived to each in different ways... so thers a huge commonality and but a vastness of unknown... its hard to answer this with out being vague... i have specifica examples i suppose... or if not specific i can recall conversations which very much had a ebb and flow of understanding and then those in which i felt totally estranged from you ..
