Nice to see I'm lustful but the malicious description from level 8 is fairly accurate. To be somewhat biblical, I have the patience of Job but don't piss me off or break what I consider to be rules, you will fall very quickly and I will act or wish things maliciously.
FWIW and it may be age related I often re-evaluate where I am and what I'm doing. I try very, very hard to evaluate all sides and put aside my own personal biases. I fail at that and am hypocritical often. That, I think, is simply human nature (the hypocrisy). I think relatively few people examine their actions and certainly it is not that common in the younger folks. No malice intended there, more a reflection of what I and my peers were like during our teen years. Self indulgence tends to be more prevalent. Simple fact. Those that rise above that at that age are to be congratulated. Those that do not should be tolerated as best as can be, given that they may be headed for change without realizing it.
I am tolerant but arrogant. I am cynical but optimistic. I am kind but protective of those I care about to the point of malice. I am often wrong and recognize and try to correct that. I try to be a kid and have fun, lest work drag me to where I seem destined.
Sorry, but in a general malaise of late. Collecting has been tough lately. Great folks helping out left, right and center but geez, I'd just like to find something on the pegs at retail price. Whoulda thunk that toys could become so serious. Loser.
