I could kill him January 28, 2009

So, there’s this cute little metaphysical bookstore about an hour away that my mom and I found.  I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it before cause I have a huge crush on the younger guy that works there.  However, the other guy I’ve met, presumably the owner, has been rude and very curt on every occasion I’ve met him.  But despite this man’s attitude we have continued to make the hour long drive every couple of weeks or so for herbs and general poking around the shop and for Jamie-staring-at-the-cute-nerdy-pagan-boy Time.  Once we even got all the way out there and they were closed for no reason and we still continued to make the trek and shop there.  Today was the final straw.  I have written up the following review to put on Google.  My mom doesn’t want me too, understandably so.  However, I need to vent.  So I’m putting it up over here until I decide whether it makes me as bad a person as him to post it.  What I really want to do is drive down there and give him a good shouting.  Another reason my mother doesn’t want me to do anything is that she believes he is dark and might do something negative against us (read: hex us).

“An it harm none, do what ye will”? (this is my major problem right here, won’t my publishing this review (with names) be harming as well?)

I have had both good experiences and bad ones in this store.  They have an amazing collection of herbs and a good selection of books for the size of the store, and most of the staff is very pleasant.  However, there is one member of the staff (the owner, I believe) that has repeatedly been rude to my mother and me.  Today was the final straw.  For the first time, he actually seemed kind of friendly and then he did a “free reading” for my mother for no reason.  He told her my father was having an affair.  I don’t care whether it is true or not, but no professional “psychic” should ever tell a client such bad news so directly, even if every card in the reading indicates such.  It is rude and mean-spirited.

The title is a general form of the Wiccan Rede: as long as it ain’t hurting anyone, do what you want.  The general philosophy of most forms of paganism, specifically Wicca (which I don’t practice, however I do respect the Rede).  In my opinion this man greatly broke the one major rule of his religion, however wouldn’t my posting the very negative review for potential customers of his and potentially harming his business and him be breaking the Rede as well?

And the second worst part of this (the first obvious part would be how my mom is feeling tonight) is that I’ll never find out if me and cute-nerdy-pagan-boy would have hit it off.  Damn.

Today was long.  Good, except for the whole Jamie-skipping-class thing.  I promise myself that it will NOT become a habit.  I bought a raincoat so I have no excuse next time it is pooring out.  Yes, I know that rain seems like a lame excuse, but it’s a very very long walk and the idea of that walk in the rain without a raincoat to my least favorite class didn’t really appeal to me.  Very bad move on my part, but like I said, this is the one-and-only time.

On another note, I’ve been doing some serious soul searching lately.  My mother, my neighbor and I have all recently taken up paganism, in our own different ways.  I’m not going to go too far into the religious aspects of it, because it is rather personal and also sometimes people get uncomfortable with the idea of paganism.  So… back to the story… I’ve been spending far more time (and money) than I would care to admit at my metapsychical/new age bookstore.  The owners are very very nice and helpful and their daughter is a medium.  She does readings there a couple of days a week.  My neighbor has been seeing her for a couple of years and swears by her and my mother has seen her two or three times.  I hadn’t done it because I wasn’t sure quite ho much stock I put into psychics and the like and I didn’t want to go forking over my hard earned money to a stranger so she’ll tell me that I’ll get through all this hard stuff of growing up and I will find the man of my dreams and get married and live happily ever after.  (I did go to a psychic once right after I graduated high school when I was on a trip in NYC with my friends and that is pretty much the answer I got.)

You can see where this is going, can’t you?

Hi!  This is me procrastinating sleep.  I know I need to and I really want to, but my mind is running a million miles an hour right now.  I’m going to pop an anxiety pill and hope that when I’m done with this massive update I will be sleepy…

Back and medicated.  FYI, if you want to skip my rambling and get to the story of the day, skip down to the Romance part.
