Chemistry at work 8

What-could-possibly-go-wrong-with-that advice from Gary Lamb’s friend and advisor:

NEVER underestimate the importance of chemistry in regards 2 who you work with…doing WHAT u r called 2 do w/people u love is AWESOME!

Lamb thought so too.

Perhaps professionalism should be more important than chemistry, but who am I to argue with success?

    When you only associate with a certain inner circle sometimes this “circle” becomes too close…

    from july 13th? C’mon Duncan. Don’t let me lose respect. You don’t have to dig for stuff to write about.

    The fact that it comes from July makes it worse – for Noble – not Duncan. It was closer to the Lamb affair, and shows the unthinking nature of some of Noble’s comments.

    The last line of your quote is correct, though. It doesn’t take digging to find. It just takes observing. Plus, my guess is that Duncan avoids a lot of comments that could be posted, but to avoid overwhelming us, he gives us a representative sample.

    Yeah I guess my point is, most of us don’t need to be convinced that PN has terrible thoughts/posts/tweets that are indicators.

    For me, i guess, i see a repost of a tweet PN and it seems like there must have been some digging going on for it to have been in July.

    It seems to be true that Duncan, or any of us for that matter, wouldn’t have to look for things to write about, but that honestly much of it is pretty blatant. Therefore, my concern with the post from that far back.

    either way. i agree with the post.

    I just don’t want there to be any reason for this blog to lose credibility, not that JD or anyone i’m sure is seriously worried about that. I just see a good bit of knowledge and truth that gets said on here, and wouldn’t want that to be overshadowed by anything.

    This post has been in my drafts bin since July. I must have had something better to talk about that day, and I really didn’t want to pay any more attention to GL at that moment.

    It still reads strangely now, but I still don’t understand how Gary’s very recent and still-unfolding story could not have crossed Noble’s mind as he wrote that. Even as a friend of Gary, did he think about how Lamb might feel when he read that?

    Last week PN did a long series on how to avoid affairs, which made this relevant again, hence its September resuscitation. We don’t know much about Lamb’s affair, but we do know that it started when he went looking for her because he loved working with her. Chemistry sometimes produces bombs.

    That’s what she said.

    Yeah, I figured that was the case. Agreed.

    Long time lurker. Have been keeping up with GL’s post-affair tweets and the one post-affair blog post. The blog post conspicuously fails to mention the Revolution staff, just the attenders and volunteers. Wonder if the staff outed him to the overseer team. The tweets are borderline pathetic but as was predicted here, he’s starting to make some noise about starting another church and I just can’t shake the impression I have that he and Elena are still seeing one another. This might be just me, as he is allowed to have the kids overnight, which probably wouldn’t happen if it was. Elena’s handful of tweets have been a bit snarky but other than those both she and Kyle have disappeared from the landscape.
