Ok.  I’m not dead.

There.  I said it.  Let the rumors be dispelled.

I realize it has been a long time since I posted here but contrary to appearances I haven’t completely given up on Live Journal.  I still check in daily and I still take comfort in the fact that most of your lives are as messy and screwed up as my own. (Some of you are just a mess.  Seriously.  Some of you are just an ad for Cymbalta waiting to happen….) I’ve just been feeling…quiet…for some time now.  After years of working through my own issues in the public forum of Live Journal, this time around the ferris wheel I find myself adopting a new philosophy in regards to my own changes and struggles:

The first rule of fight club is you do not talk about fight club.

The second rule of fight club is…

I’ll get chatty again eventually.  It’s inevitable.  I may even renew my expired LJ paid account;  thus bolstering the economy of the Russian populace.   And I’ll still pop up on occasion to make snarky comments here and there in your own journals.  But for now I’m enjoying the silence, being off the grid, and the sheer laziness of it all. 

How lazy?

*Insert witty journal ending here.*

I appreciate that but I've kind of accepted something about myself that most people on LJ probably find taboo...

Yes I used taboo in a sentence.

I'm a results oriented blogger...aka a comment whore...and now when I think of writing a post my brain over rides the urge by thinking, "Noone is going to comment on it anyway so don't bother."

So I don't. Accepting that has really been quite freeing. It's that feeling when you go up a size in pants and finally allow yourself to say, "Fuck it. I'll buy bigger pants."

But my love... you have incredible talent. You don't need things to write about as I do. You can turn the most ordinary of events into an epic of wit and literary grace. As I said on a certain massive-spyware-project-operating-under-the-flimsy-disguise-of-a-social-networking-site... you are the Debussy of words.

I'm not french. I just showered this morning.

Bless you my son but you are incorrect. I'm the Paula Abdul of words. I had a few hits a long time ago but now I only wander out of my drunken exile to critique others and buy another bottle of "I used to be a contender" label bourbon.

you are missed here, greatly... but I understand the pain of being a comment whore with few to no comments :)

Result Oriented Blogger sounds so much more respectable and I strive for respectability...except when I'm not. Respectable that is.

I missed you.

But I totally get the rules of fight club.

Really glad you checked in, handsome.

I bought some things for the show I'm designing at YOUR STORES, and was startled outta my wits, when one of 'em was closed, and construction was going on, inside!

Then I was directed down the street, where Denim-Hell-for-the-Poor is in the same building as Denim-Hell-for-the-Rapidly-Disappearing-Middle-Class, but you weren't in either of 'em!
