Lost a Friend

Well, I just lost a friend over this entry. (sigh)

I know that's the risk I take when sharing a strong opinion, but it makes me feel bad, even so...

I'd love to hear more about how Pepsi (people who work for Pepsi???) feels about this, frankly. It's so hard for me to accept that this is all about the bottom line -- especially when they're dealing with a well-known and popular festival and non-profit.

Of course, the person that dropped me listed an interest in 'free speech' (which Marilyn mistressmarilyn pointed out to me) -- and I don't think I was too ranting in what I posted previously.

Pepsi's decision has now cost me the loss of our machine at work and the loss of a LiveJournal friend. Terrific, huh?

Anyway, it's almost 8:00 a.m. and we've yet to go to bed, so that's where we're finally headed. Yesterday was another long and busy day...

We're trying to get past that feeling that every time we blog here at LJ, play a computer game, watch TV or do anything else recreational that we should feel guilty. I know that sounds crazy, but it's been that kind of year. We always feel like we should be WORKING.

Well, on that note, goodnight (good morning?) all. (smile)
