01:56 pm - What is life too short for again?
How do you tell when to apply
"Life's too short to stay mad at people"
or
"Life's too short to be around people who generate negative energy."
This comes up (again, as it does every so often) because a friend is trying to decide how to handle an unwelcome influence who wants to be in her life. I didn't bring it up in her lj (sorry) because I happen to think she's making the right call, and I don't want anything to distract her for that.
Still, it brings up one of my favorite connundrums, a situation in which I often find myself. How can I tell the difference between a vampire parasite creature and a true friend who's going through some things and will be fine later, if I can just hang in there?
In the spirit of identifying and conquring the VPC, I have composed the following poll. As always, your support and cooperation is appreciated.

From kabalarian.com (thanks Jen!)
The name Marci creates a very independent, practical, analytical nature with skillful business abilities. You desire freedom from restrictions and authority in order that you can pursue your own ambitions. Material and financial success are the focus of your interests, but sacrificing much for material ambition will result in a lack of harmony and balance in your personal life, particularly a lack of appreciation for social courtesies and things of a more inspirational nature. Since you often appear to be too unfeeling, factual, and calculating in your dealings with others, your personal happiness and fulfilment can suffer through difficulty in conveying your feminine qualities of love and affection.
bahahaahahahahahahahahaahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.
Well, it is what my parents wanted, I think, but I haven't heard any complaints lately about what they got, so alls well that ends well, right?
