RIP, BRags and Grrrlvicious. *UPDATED*

A tragedy has befallen Weenie Enema. West Point Cadet Bobbie Ragsdale, an occasional contributor and subject of several previous blog interviews, has abruptly ended his year-long engagement to Grrrlvicious. While I had several moral misgivings about publishing this interview, primarily because it was pro-BRags and not necessarily pro-Grrrl, I eventually decided to edit some of the Grrrl vitriol and get the story out there for the simple reason that Grrrl's side of the story has already been published on her blog, and I think BRags deserves an opportunity to get his side out there. I don't necessarily agree with either side exclusively, but I feel both parties have interesting arguments in their defense.

For further understanding:
MyDadIsAWeenie: E.E. Grimshaw
BRags753: Bobbie Ragsdale
HurricainFran: Drunk Erin
devilishnyc: DB Bogangles

You have just entered room "bragsbojangles."
HurricainFran has entered the room.
HurricainFran: I love chat rooms!
BRags753 has entered the room.
MyDadIsAWeenie: hopefully, several of our associates will come in soon
MyDadIsAWeenie: but in the meantime
MyDadIsAWeenie: lets get to the nitty gritty
MyDadIsAWeenie: we are here to discuss a very somber occasion
HurricainFran: how are you holding up, boiiivicious?
BRags753: makin it
MyDadIsAWeenie: okay, you can't just do that
MyDadIsAWeenie: background is a necessity
MyDadIsAWeenie: brags, you and your fiancee, grrrlvicious, are no more
MyDadIsAWeenie: what's the dizzle
BRags753: It was too hard. I finally had to think about me and walk away
HurricainFran: So you broke up...but blow jobs are still ok, yes?
BRags753: Well, no
MyDadIsAWeenie: can we stay on track?
MyDadIsAWeenie: now, from what i gather
MyDadIsAWeenie: there were two external factors involved predominantly
HurricainFran: is one of them the fact you met on hot or not?
MyDadIsAWeenie: an ex-girlfriend, and you getting 12 hours of sleep in one week
BRags753: the sleep had nothing to do with it
HurricainFran: it was the hot or not thing, wasnt it?
BRags753: I broke up with her immediately prior to the sleepless week
BRags753: the relationship is spurious
MyDadIsAWeenie: but isn't it a safe assumption
MyDadIsAWeenie: that the chances of this possibly being resolved would have been much greater if you had had some sleep in the following week
BRags753: eh, no
BRags753: I made up my mind about it before I even got back to NY
BRags753: I went home over Thanksgiving and I spent time with my old best friend - it's better to think of her that way than as the ex.
HurricainFran: says...spurious: of illegitimate birth; bastard.
HurricainFran: knocked her up, yes?
MyDadIsAWeenie: how much of a factor was her living on the other side of country
BRags753: the CA thing had nothing to do with it either
MyDadIsAWeenie: is it safe to say that you spending time with an old flame added another perspective to this whole marrying grrrl thing
BRags753: Yes, that's exactly what it did. Gave it perspective
BRags753: I just realized a) That I had more fun without Christine, b) I could have a lot more fun with other people who are more similar to me, and c) I still have feelings for Meghan - very strong ones. a and b are the important ones here
HurricainFran: Who is Meghan?
BRags753: the girl I saw back home
HurricainFran: When did you date her?
BRags753: Saw her the day prior [to Thanksgiving], stayed with her till Sunday. We sorta kinda dated in like the 8th grade. But we'd been basically best friends from 7th-10th or 11th grade
BRags753: then we kinda drifted
HurricainFran: whoa, 8th grade?
HurricainFran: So, you carried her books and tried to touch her boob?
BRags753: I told you, don't think of her as the ex. Think of her as the best friend
MyDadIsAWeenie: i would like to argue about one of your points here
MyDadIsAWeenie: you keep telling us we should think of her as a best friend rather than a love interest
MyDadIsAWeenie: but you mentioned that one of the factors involved in your grrrlvicious split were feelings for meghan
MyDadIsAWeenie: you can't have it both ways
BRags753: I didn't say don't think of her as a love interest. I said don't think of her as the ex
BRags753: big difference
MyDadIsAWeenie: but would she even BE a love interest if you didn't have history?
BRags753: the relationship that we had, prior to Thanksgiving, was of two best friends. Not of boyfriend-girlfriend
HurricainFran: is this a dawson/joey thing?
HurricainFran: Did she climb your ladder?

BRags753: Well, maybe not. We dated because I was completely enamoured with her at the time. Then I got too serious for her and she got scared, despite feeling similarly. Then years of other stuff. Now, she's dating some guy, but doesn't quite know how she feels
HurricainFran: is it pacey?
BRags753: She a) doesn't want a long distance relationship, b) is dating Matthew (more later), and c) is not sure how she feels about me being in the army
MyDadIsAWeenie: how do grrrl and meghan feel about each other
BRags753: they pretty much despise one another
BRags753: Meghan feels stronger about it than Christine, who is mostly sad and confused
HurricainFran: where does Meghan live?
BRags753: Baton Rouge/New Orleans
HurricainFran: ooooh does she have a southern accent?
BRags753: ::shrug::
MyDadIsAWeenie: are we allowed to discuss
MyDadIsAWeenie: the Incident
MyDadIsAWeenie: that blew my mind
MyDadIsAWeenie: no pun intended
HurricainFran: and his down there places
BRags753: She tried to convince me to stay with her/go back to her. In the process there was much seduction and I was weak. I see no need to discuss it further.
MyDadIsAWeenie: what a wonderful noble way of describing it
BRags753: It changes nothing except I felt incredibly guilty thereafter
MyDadIsAWeenie: i can't imagine you harboring feelings of guilt
BRags753: I am. It was wrong of me to do.
HurricainFran: Didn't you...not really do anything?
HurricainFran: I mean, it's kind of a one-sided activity.
MyDadIsAWeenie: i'm not sure if you can call it "wrong"
MyDadIsAWeenie: you technically weren't committed to either at that point
BRags753: technically, yes. But it would be inaccurate to say I was not actively engaged in the activity
HurricainFran: Thrusting, then?
HurricainFran: Did I just type that?
MyDadIsAWeenie: jesus
MyDadIsAWeenie: erin, behave.
MyDadIsAWeenie: we talked about this
HurricainFran: sorry. It's because I'm sober.
MyDadIsAWeenie: my father had a question
MyDadIsAWeenie: and i promised to mention it today
BRags753: ok
MyDadIsAWeenie: do you get to keep the harley
BRags753: hell yeah

HurricainFran: she bought you the harley?
BRags753: it's in my name
BRags753: no
BRags753: I bought me a harley
BRags753: she helped me make the decision to do it
BRags753: I probably wouldn't have done it but for her convincing me to.
MyDadIsAWeenie: i felt she was very much invested in this
MyDadIsAWeenie: for instance, you had to take driving lessons and shizzle before coming into the city
BRags753: yeah, but I didn't actually
HurricainFran: But it was your money, etc.
BRags753: yeah, I picked it out, bought it and rode it
BRags753: and financed it
BRags753: all mine
MyDadIsAWeenie: okay, next question. you guys had a LOT of future shit planned - wedding, expenses, joint bank accounts, etc.
MyDadIsAWeenie: how do you just separate yourselves from such an investment
HurricainFran: did you guys talk about getting a cat together?
HurricainFran: because that's a big step.
BRags753: she can keep the cat. We haven't quite figured everything out yet
HurricainFran: you guys actually got a cat? I was kidding.

BRags753: basically, there's the matter of her car, the thousand dollar deposit on the wedding (which I don't expect back), and she spent $700 on a dress
BRags753: that's about it, really
BRags753: and we have a joint phone plan/checking account
MyDadIsAWeenie: why don't you get the wedding money back
BRags753: because it's a deposit
MyDadIsAWeenie: that doesnt seem fair
HurricainFran: Can she keep the dress for her next potential wedding, or will it be out of style?
BRags753: I dunno.... I guess that's on her

MyDadIsAWeenie: now, i don't really want to get into grrrlvicious' personality too much
MyDadIsAWeenie: but i have one question
BRags753: shoot
MyDadIsAWeenie: she's about my age, probably about 23
BRags753: 23, yes
MyDadIsAWeenie: and she has now been engaged twice
BRags753: true
MyDadIsAWeenie: doesn't that seem a little nutty
BRags753: ::shrug:: my grandmother was engaged like 4 times before my grandfather
BRags753: one was in college; I was after she graduated
MyDadIsAWeenie: i don't know, i just don't have a lot of friends who are into getting married right now
MyDadIsAWeenie: so maybe this is just me not knowing the right people
BRags753: perhaps
HurricainFran: ditto for me
BRags753: Generally speaking, it's largely a product of wealth. People with more money wait, generally. Poorer folks don't.
MyDadIsAWeenie: but it still seems a little...sketchy? to become so hardcore invested in more than one person in such a short amount of time, to the point where thousands of dollars are being spent
BRags753: eh, she was more invested in me than him
BRags753: they didn't have a date or anything, I don't think
BRags753: and they were only engaged for a few months, I believe
BRags753: we were almost a year
HurricainFran: The only person I know my age who's married is my idiot childhood friend who once threw a bagel at a trucker from a car window.
BRags753: I have a friend who graduated HS a year before me who got married and is already divorced
HurricainFran: is it Britney?
BRags753: haha, no

MyDadIsAWeenie: if you guys hadn't gotten engaged so quickly and made all of these plans, do you think you would still be together, or would the external factors still play into it
BRags753: no, the engagement made it last longer
HurricainFran: how long did you date before you got engaged?
BRags753: 11 months
MyDadIsAWeenie: out of those 11 months
MyDadIsAWeenie: how often did you see her
BRags753: well, all the time
BRags753: she lived like 30 min from West Point
BRags753: In fact, we house-sat together over the summer, so we basically lived together for a month
HurricainFran: did you meet her when you were already at West Point?
BRags753: yes
BRags753: Sophomore year
MyDadIsAWeenie: i just don't see how you can say distance didn't play a part in the latter stages of the relationship
MyDadIsAWeenie: when you went from seeing her all the time to seeing her like twice a year
BRags753: eh, maybe it did. I think that's what she thinks
MyDadIsAWeenie: now, you said you broke up with her because it was too hard. from what i've read from grrrl's livejournal, she doesn't agree
MyDadIsAWeenie: why is there such a gulf between both of your impressions of the situation
BRags753: oh, she just doesn't see things my way..
HurricainFran: What does Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl do with her life?
BRags753: She is a writer
HurricainFran: a livejournal writer?
BRags753: she does marketing and copy editing now
MyDadIsAWeenie: what are the chances of reconciling with grrrl
BRags753: slim
BRags753: I mean, I still love her just as much as ever. It's just too hard to deal with everything. I have to walk away, for me.
MyDadIsAWeenie: for the last week or two, i've gathered that you and grrrl were just not on the same page - most of her livejournal entries were optimistic, if not a little...brooding, but you maintained a pretty stoic stance
BRags753: I had to
MyDadIsAWeenie: are you more or less in agreement about all of this now
BRags753: The two of us? Not really. She still wants to reconcile
BRags753: I mean, she goes back and forth between saying she needs some time alone and she wants me back
BRags753: She's still figuring things out
HurricainFran: Why is it that you have more fun with other people than with her?
BRags753: Because she is usually afraid of her own shadow... doesn't like social situations, is very tense and panicy, often makes demands of me and nags about things I do
BRags753: doesn't eat seafood
MyDadIsAWeenie: but in all fairness
MyDadIsAWeenie: didn't you know all this before
BRags753: Yes, but I figured if I loved her enough it wouldn't matter
BRags753: I realize now that love by itself is not enough
MyDadIsAWeenie: and why would you love someone who doesn't appear to have anything in common with you at all?
BRags753: she's very sweet and loving
BRags753: and compassionate
HurricainFran: to your down there parts?
MyDadIsAWeenie: erin!
MyDadIsAWeenie: stop
BRags753: she is much more thoughtful than I
MyDadIsAWeenie: was there one event though that made you decide that love couldn't be the be all, end all
MyDadIsAWeenie: or is it a lot more simple than that
MyDadIsAWeenie: you spending time with a girl who likes guns
BRags753: I just had a lot more fun with Meghan and I thought, "well, if I could experience the same amount of love, with this much fun, things would be a lot better and a lot easier for me."
MyDadIsAWeenie: you said we'd get back to this
MyDadIsAWeenie: and now seems as good a time as any
MyDadIsAWeenie: you said meghan has a boyfriend
BRags753: Matthew
BRags753: She has been on 2 dates with him - both prior to Thanksgiving - but has known him for like 5 years or something
BRags753: he's 27 and they just recently both admitted to liking one another
MyDadIsAWeenie: then how is he a boyfriend
BRags753: he's a boyfriend because she really likes him, even though he's called her one (1) time since Thanksgiving
HurricainFran: thanks for adding the numeral in for us illiterates over here

BRags753: She was all pissed at him and about done until he called Friday night and said, "Sorry, I was busy, but I still really want to date you."
MyDadIsAWeenie: but is meghan not aware that she played a fairly significant part in breaking up your engagement?
BRags753: fully aware
MyDadIsAWeenie: so why doesn't she feel some sort of obligation to exploring that
BRags753: she still wants to try with Matthew because apparently he's a really nice guy, etc etc
HurricainFran: Does she have feelings for you?
HurricainFran: Aside from friendly ones
BRags753: yes, she does
MyDadIsAWeenie: so where does this leave you
MyDadIsAWeenie: no fiancee, and someone who has a sort of boyfriend
BRags753: Not entirely sure
BRags753: I was feeling pretty good about things with Meghan until Friday
HurricainFran: Will you be browsing the selection at hot or not once more?
BRags753: I doubt it
BRags753: for now anyway
HurricainFran: eharmony?
BRags753: haha, we'll see. But not now
BRags753: I'm not opposed to the idea in the future. But I have too many real possibilities now to worry about that.
MyDadIsAWeenie: from grrrl's livejournal, she called the time you spent with meghan "emotional cheating"
MyDadIsAWeenie: do you agree with that assessment
BRags753: no, I don't
HurricainFran: emotional cheating is a fucked up concept for people with "feelings".
BRags753: I didn't touch Meghan. The fact that I spoke honestly to her constitutes nothing except a problem with Christine - ie, I couldn't be honest with her
MyDadIsAWeenie: is it just an issue of having different definitions of emotional cheating
MyDadIsAWeenie: or miscommunication
BRags753: I don't think such a thing exists
MyDadIsAWeenie: why couldn't you be honest
MyDadIsAWeenie: or did you not feel you were holding out on her
BRags753: you can't cheat with your emotions because you can't control them. And I couldn't because she couldn't handle the truth, most of the time
MyDadIsAWeenie: define 'can't handle the truth'
MyDadIsAWeenie: in the non-tom cruise sense
BRags753: she would get upset about things. If I had doubts, I couldn't tell her because she would internalize them. I spent all of my time being strong for her and helping her through her doubts
BRags753: To have doubts of my own would surely have created more problems
HurricainFran: It sounds sort of paternal almost...
BRags753: indeed. It's a role I've frequently played for women
BRags753: In a non-incestous way
MyDadIsAWeenie: so are we supposed to conclude that sometimes you need to step down off the pedestal and be an imperfect civilian
MyDadIsAWeenie: minus civilian, since you literally can't be that
BRags753: that's the conclusion
BRags753: Can't be superman all the time, I guess....
BRags753: only sometimes
MyDadIsAWeenie: what i love about that
MyDadIsAWeenie: is that grrrl spent so much time saying that she loved you even more because this whole incident showed you weren't perfect
MyDadIsAWeenie: and i guess meant she could relate to you better?
BRags753: Yeah, I think so. She had an image of me as a superhero who could do anything... which, in all fairness is basically my own self-image.
BRags753: This more human touch appealed to her
HurricainFran: modest
BRags753: eh
BRags753: It got me this far
BRags753: a fair amount of arragonce is necessary in what I do

MyDadIsAWeenie: so now that you have this relationship that has, for all intents and purposes, failed, does it make you feel any urge to change your own personality and the way you convey yourself to other people
BRags753: It makes me realize I can't shoulder entire burdens by myself in perpetuity
MyDadIsAWeenie: are you saying that a) you shouldered the entire burden for grrrl for two years and b) that she allowed you to do so
BRags753: ...largely, but not entirely, yes
MyDadIsAWeenie: i have a question based on an observation that someone made to me about this situation
MyDadIsAWeenie: the blowjob incident, while maybe being a moment of...moral indecisiveness or something, could it also be that your catholic, waiting till marriage mentality has made you very very pro-blow job, more so than having sex
BRags753: well, there's undeniably a difference
HurricainFran: wait, so you're waiting for marriage?
BRags753: eh, was
HurricainFran: was?
BRags753: Christine broke me down
HurricainFran: she peer-pressured you into giving up such a precious gift?
BRags753: well... something like that, I suppose
HurricainFran: Was it a Crazy Mego type thing?
HurricainFran: Did you cry rape?
HurricainFran: Did Tiffani Amber Thiessen play you in a lifetime movie?
BRags753: haha, no, when I did it, it was of my own power
MyDadIsAWeenie: but we're getting away from my original question
MyDadIsAWeenie: do you heart blowjobs more than sex
MyDadIsAWeenie: because of your past history
BRags753: I think so
HurricainFran: Less work on his part, I guess
BRags753: well, I mean, I'd had blowjobs before Christine
BRags753: that was the last girlfriend who broke me down on that front...
HurricainFran: Whoa, so you were gonna save that for marriage, too?
BRags753: yeah
MyDadIsAWeenie: wow
HurricainFran: If one is "saving oneself for marriage" can you not do like, anything oral? Is that typical?
BRags753: All sexual contact aside from kissing and maybe heavy petting
HurricainFran: Whoa
HurricainFran: Guess I missed out on that since I skipped catechism every week since I was 8
BRags753: I believed - and still largely do - that sex is sex is sex
MyDadIsAWeenie: i feel like we're interviewing the anti-bill clinton
BRags753: yeah, I mean, the whole country called Bill a liar for saying exactly what 90% of Americans profess
BRags753: and sex should be reserved for marriage.
MyDadIsAWeenie: but how did grrrl manage to change your mind
MyDadIsAWeenie: at least temporarily
BRags753: well, she never really changed my mind. I just accepted my fate
HurricainFran: a man-whore?
HurricainFran: sorry. I didn't mean to just imply you're a gigalo.
BRags753: I still profess it's sinful behavior. I just accept that I've sinned.
MyDadIsAWeenie: see, if i was grrrl
MyDadIsAWeenie: i would probably take offense to you having sex with me as being "sinful"
BRags753: well, yeah, and she did
BRags753: and yeah, I think masterbation is ok on all counts
HurricainFran: but sex is sex is sex and you're sexing up your hand in masterbation
BRags753: well, no, sex involves 2 or more people
BRags753: to me
HurricainFran: wait, you had orgys?
HurricainFran: Meghan, Christine and you? Is that why they hate each other? Competing in the bedroom, literally?

devilishnyc has entered the room.
devilishnyc: sorry!! i am here now!
devilishnyc: i was asleep
BRags753: Meghan dislikes Christine because she thinks she's manipulative
MyDadIsAWeenie: how is grrrl manipulative
BRags753: because she uses guilt and tricks to make me feel certain ways
BRags753: I didn't actually break up with her. She broke up with me... like she does about once or twice a week
BRags753: except, this time, I just said "ok"
MyDadIsAWeenie: waaaait
MyDadIsAWeenie: back it up
MyDadIsAWeenie: when you guys officially broke up
BRags753: Sunday, 26 Nov.
MyDadIsAWeenie: she actually SAID you broke up??
BRags753: she said she was leaving me
BRags753: she says that all the time, though
HurricainFran: Did you not sense it was, I don't know, abnormal, that she broke up with you multiple times a week?
BRags753: I usually fight it
BRags753: this time I just agreed
MyDadIsAWeenie: why did she want to leave you
devilishnyc: yeah, why?
BRags753: I dunno. I think because I didn't pay her enough attention over Thanksgiving
HurricainFran: Did she get jealous of the turkey?
BRags753: I doubt it
MyDadIsAWeenie: what does that even MEAN
HurricainFran: SHE wanted to be the one he was...umm...bastering.
devilishnyc: hahahaha
HurricainFran: BASTING
HurricainFran: Baisting?
HurricainFran: Fuck it, I don't cook.
MyDadIsAWeenie: you and i have had fairly regular communications for about two years or so, and i've never gotten the impression that it was even POSSIBLE to get into a fight with you. how is she doing this multiple times a week?
BRags753: I don't know
BRags753: She is sensitive about everything I say
BRags753: takes offense to everything
HurricainFran: If she gets upset at everything, WHY did it take so long to end it?
BRags753: because I love her
MyDadIsAWeenie: why didn't you just say
MyDadIsAWeenie: "grrrlvicious, stop being so sensitive"
BRags753: I said that all the time
BRags753: That's like saying, "Emma, be taller!"
HurricainFran: Changing physically is different than changing mentally
MyDadIsAWeenie: i think they're intertwined
BRags753: yeah, it's not a question of attitude. It's of mental fitness
MyDadIsAWeenie: devra, do you have any questions that you haven't gotten a chance to ask
MyDadIsAWeenie: you were over an hour late to the proceedings
devilishnyc: i was tired. i got hit with a box of "good times" tapes at work
devilishnyc: literally

devilishnyc: why do guys always stay with girls way too long? like even when they aren't happy or less than relatively happy? because it is easy???
devilishnyc: this has mystified me for years
BRags753: well, in my case, because I felt a sense of duty to be strong
BRags753: strong for both of us
MyDadIsAWeenie: so are we to take from this
MyDadIsAWeenie: that being strong can keep a relationship going for a certain amount of time, even if everyone involved is unhappy
MyDadIsAWeenie: but at some point
MyDadIsAWeenie: when you find a girl from home, your joey potter, to go shooting with
MyDadIsAWeenie: boom
MyDadIsAWeenie: that's it
BRags753: That was very, "Final thoughts" from Jerry Springer
HurricainFran: Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl was just your Jen. Only, you know, scary.

devilishnyc: like you are what, 22? you have your whole life. what's the point in being "strong" in a relationship where you know something is wrong or not good
BRags753: Because I thought it could be
BRags753: Maybe I wasn't having a great time and it was stressful, but I love her and she loves me, and in a way, sometimes that's all I need
BRags753: I figured if I could hold on to that, I'd be ok
MyDadIsAWeenie: is it wrong to ask why you love grrrlvicious
MyDadIsAWeenie: because this seems very lopsided
MyDadIsAWeenie: you mentioned that she's very compassionate
MyDadIsAWeenie: but that's ONE quality, that can't be it
BRags753: she's strong enough to stand up to me
BRags753: most people cow to me
BRags753: she put me in my place sometimes, and I need that
HurricainFran: We really haven't seen any evidence of her strength.
BRags753: I understand that
BRags753: But she was honest with me
BRags753: It means that maybe she wasn't really strong so much as just... afraid. Like when you back a small dog into a corner
BRags753: I couldn't bully her
BRags753: not that I tried, but sometimes I have a very strong personality that makes others just shut up and comply
MyDadIsAWeenie: but at the same time
MyDadIsAWeenie: i got you to pick me up from brooklyn
MyDadIsAWeenie: miles out of the city
MyDadIsAWeenie: so you have lovable weenie qualities as well
devilishnyc: awwwwww
BRags753: I wasn't bullied into doing that. I volunteered
MyDadIsAWeenie: which still boggles the mind
BRags753: ::shrug:: you needed a ride
MyDadIsAWeenie: well, i didn't NEED it
MyDadIsAWeenie: i just really wanted it
BRags753: true. Also, I had nothing to do
BRags753: I just rode around the city for like 6 hours
MyDadIsAWeenie: we've discussed how much external factors impacted your relationship
MyDadIsAWeenie: how much did the FUTURE factor in? you're going to be bopping around at army schools and in the middle east for the next few years
BRags753: yes... that is hard for me because she was ok with all of that
BRags753: By ok, I mean, she was going to stick with me during it
BRags753: and that's no small thing to ask of someone
MyDadIsAWeenie: how can you know that? you're still at west point, she had no way of proving that out until you actually did it
BRags753: I believe her
BRags753: I know
MyDadIsAWeenie: what would she have done? just gone with you to bases and shizzle?
BRags753: well, yeah. I mean, if we're married, she's coming with me so long as I'm not in the sandbox
BRags753: whatever base I go to, the wife and family comes with
BRags753: unless I deploy overseas. That I do alone
MyDadIsAWeenie: WAIT
MyDadIsAWeenie: you can't end the sentence like that
MyDadIsAWeenie: devra does that ALL the time
MyDadIsAWeenie: come with ME

As always, we thank BRags for taking time to discuss this intriguing situation. There are several questions that I neglected to ask during the interview, and hopefully I will be able to update this post with the answers to those said questions in the near future. If you have any questions for BRags, please feel free to leave them in the comment section, and I will force him to answer them in a timely manner.

The big question I forgot to ask BRags during the interview involved a voicemail that he left Grrrlvicious while he was in the airport on his way home from Thanksgiving. On her livejournal, Grrrlvicious pointed to that sugary voicemail ("I love you and I brag about you all the time to everybody that I know about how smart you are, and how much I love you, and how i'm gonna marry you and we're gonna be awesome together cuz...we're gonna have a farm and animals and maybe even a pony named mr. sparkles - or whatever you feel is appropriate.") as an indication that BRags was deceitful, since he told her he had been thinking about breaking up with her before that weekend. I caught up with BRags this afternoon and asked for his thoughts on the subject:
BRags753: I was about to get on the plane. Christine and I were talking and she was a bit nervous/jealous about me going to see Meghan. At this point, I had no doubts about anything, so I dismissed this as silly
MyDadIsAWeenie: BUT
MyDadIsAWeenie: you told her you were thinking about this for months
BRags753: Well, yes, but more or less subconciously. I suppressed those thoughts. Anyway, I had to get on the plane, but first, she said that I should leave her a sweet message that she could save and listen to if the plane went down or something happened while I was in NOLA, etc etc. So I hung up with her, called her back, and did just that.

One of my friends also had a question involving this situation vis a vis the Army:
MyDadIsAWeenie: knowing that you're going to be displaced for so long when you're actually in the army, can you comment on the seemingly conflicting ideas where you have this overwhelming urge to get married to someone, while you're probably not going to be able to spend much time with them once you're overseas?
BRags753: A) I am currently "actually in the army." We will refer to the future as "after I'm commissioned." B) There's no conflict to me - I may be dead in 2 years. I feel like I should get in what I can now.
BRags753: ie, I need to fire up the baby machine before it's too late
