I wrote a whole conclusion to the appearance/relationship series, but then I could not bring myself to post it as it was a self-absorbed, poorly written, poorly formatted pile of slag I’d have thought twice about putting on my livejournal, years ago. Consider the topic closed. The short version of it is that I like pretty ladies and must learn to better deal with them, and myself. I came dangerously close to posting the whole damnable/damning thing anyway, but I’ll just keep it squirreled away in my drafts folder as a cautionary example of what not to do, and fodder for future rueful head-shaking and scorn.
A proper post approaches in the p.m.
