Things will work out? I'll get what I need? Sitting here crying with dirty hair and chapped lips and piles of unattended-to work, it's hard to believe. But I'll try.

I know about the bat-bat-bat of the cat tail accompanying my circling thoughts.

Mr. SP, all your humility aside, I kinda think you knocked this one out of the park. I have to buy a new highlighter, my Qualifier took all mine. But I've got my Third Edition open to "We Agnostics." Funny how my old HP resembles increasingly a certain more...nefarious and, in our culture, rather subterranean figure. I'm still really confused by why I would want to be victimized—what could possibly be the rewards of being repeatedly thusly smote—because I can't actually imagine at this point; but I will, as you say, take a look at that. :o) I want to be a nice old lady someday soon, to whom people are drawn when they need help. I want to be warm and open and useful. I don't want to be bitter and frightened and sad and shut-down forever. So I just...yeah. Thank you. Thank you.
New shortest slogan ever: STFU. It has a certain...elegance.

So I've been wanting to ask you this anyway—everyone keeps telling me, about my crappy Higher Power: "Fire that Higher Power and get a new one!" But *how* do I do that? Because I get it that I can't take Step Three with my current God, who is, I'm pretty convinced, just in it to screw me over six ways from Sunday, and then hide behind the proscenium laughing into Their sleeve. But what's the technique or practice for making up a God I like? If I just make up a pretty and kind and friendly God, how will I ever be able to believe in Them, since They're patently nothing more than a mere creation of my own little pathetic pea-brain? So confusing.
