My family and friends wonder and ask, what is my fascination with this internet thing.
As I stated a long time ago, my "addiction" got so bad once, that friends pulled an intervention.
They showed up at my house, unannounced, determined to put an end to my destructive habit.
"This has got to stop," they said. Then as the conversation progressed (as I still sat here typing btw) they asked me, "what is it that draws you to this?"
and I tapped on the screen and said, "But--there's people in there.
And people who know me by my inside out--FIRST. Some of the kindest most understanding and giving people I've ever met.
The bottom line is, I'm not so "weird" here.
(still weird, but just not as weird as the people who want to talk about the latest Judge Judy decision)
So I want to thank you all for being so kind to me.
And if I can "milk" the kindness a bit more?
(That's right Ronnie Baby, "Give 'em a cookie and they ask for a glass of milk") I've one more favor to ask.
While I'm away for this brief time, I have a theme I would like everyone to think about.
This is it:
All of us grew up with "family legend" stories--and I think most of us, as children, asked our parents about how we came into being. If you feel inclined, would you write a story about that for me? (If there's none regarding your conception/birth, any family legend story will do.)
I'd like to find some stories on my return...
Ronnie Baby? This means YOU. Nan? you too. PDV....well, if it strikes your fancy...and MYSTERIA for Goddess sake, I KNOW you have great stories--tell 'em to everybody please?
Raph, GG, Vicky, Nancylee, Chrislane, Maree, and gawd I wish Alicat and Not a Poet would indulge me as well.
I'll need some reading material.
(Hey--I figger if I can sit up on the couch, I can move that sucker over HERE, right?)
Now I'm off to drink by broth.
and no, Vodka doesn't not qualify as a "clear liquid" on this particular diet.
Thanks all and I love you bunches!
OH. And Jeffrey, Cpat Hair, icebox, Martie and 1slicklady, and, and, and...OH...JANET MARIE!!! and Kielo and...oh just EVERYBODY!
