I actually went out to the bar Thursday night. It was Bruce's birthday, and I've missed so many other important nights there (I'm still kicking myself for not going to his wedding reception) that I decided that I WAS going, come hell or high water.

And then Captain Paranoia reared his ugly head and tried talking me out of it.

So I whined a little bit about this on FB, and one of my friends/playa village-mates told me precisely what I needed to hear: "That fucker has the best timing. Kick him in the balls, and then go sparkle like the god damn princess we all know you are."

"Princess," I thought. "I can do that."

I have talked myself out of so many things lately. I'm glad that didn't work for you this time!

Late to comment, although I was keeping up in real time: You look fabooooooo. (/Wacko Warner)

IMO if everyone had a tiara, Captain Paranoia could be demoted to maybe just Sargent Paranoia. He'd still try to order one around, but one could just don one's tiara (just like you did!) and announce that you outranked his ass and would have him up on charges if he didn't bugger off to his bunk.

(And tell Gridlore that yes, I'm mixing up non-comm and commissioned ranks, and I don't care.)

If it helps, yes, definitely remember that paranoia deserves ball-kicking, especially when it's about things that don't matter.

Who knows? Maybe you could ask what you fear, and then pretend that Bruce will get a burst of hope/love/other-good-feelings upon your being there, and would that be worth the worst reasonable outcome of that fear? "Are you seriously saying that I should avoid giving someone I love something they can really use because *maybe* X_Feared_Outcome? What kind of chump would do that?"

Sometimes tiny things take courage - and courage is better when you know what must be balanced against fear, after all.

So I hope you have the daring to sparkle like a princess whenever it's good for you.
