“–come up screaming”

It pains me, it really does, to go back on my word. Even (especially?) a word spoken in the heat of pious repentance. But the search for a more suitable venue goes slowly. And man does not live by bread alone, but by every word hammered drunkenly out onto the interwabs at 2 o’clock in the morning.

So, here I am again. In lieu of a new and improved blog free from the entangling snares of pseudoprivacy, I offer this promise to myself, with you my remaining readers as witnesses (both of you): every post from here on out on this journal will be public, without exception. In the unlikely event a post turns out to be unsuitable for a public audience, it will be amended or withdrawn entirely.

Also, I offer these somewhat less rigid intentions: no political blogging unless it involves extended original thought of my own (i.e. no off-the-cuff ranting on current events). No whining unless balanced by an even greater quantity of blessing. And ongoing coverage of my quest to build a real home on the web, so I don’t get too comfortable. Feel free to call me on any of these if I start falling into old habits.

Welcome back, friends. I’ve missed our conversations.

  1. Nice to see you again


    1. Re: Nice to see you again

      Thank you. It’s nice to feel uncorked.

  2. I’ve got a nice bottle of beer I brought down from Connecticut to split you.

    – Saj

    1. Mmmm, beer. Next time I see you remind me to look up my notes from the MD Microbrewery Fest.

      1. I’m not sure if it got to you, but I’m pretty sure I told Stacy that we found a place where you can buy a decent variety of unique beers by the bottle. It’s called Quick 6 subs and if you get off Mt. rose and goes towards the city it’s only the left about two blocks after Tom’s.

        1. Yeah! I told him. 😉 Last word on that was he is eager to meet this place you mention.

  3. wait, now there are 3. And I thought I was a special part of “both”.

    DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA, attitude and insecurity!

    Didn’t take long did it? :>)

    My distaste for politics needs to be reflected in my also ignoring it, methinks.

    1. My distaste for politics needs to be reflected in my also ignoring it, methinks.

      I keep hoping if I ignore it it will go away.

    1. Your icon is proof: Hobbesians are just asking for trouble.

      1. true…

        but they are truly hardcore.. 🙂

    1. Malodorous slattern!

      1. I demand a jew vs. womens showdown.

        1. And where do you plan to obtain the womens for this matchup? I have it on good authority that you are in fact a 300-lb guy named Phil from Des Moine.

          1. I have some lady friends who write to me weekly while I suffer the hardships of incarceration.

  4. *hug* Nice to hear from you again. 🙂

    1. *hugs back* thanks 🙂

  5. Woohoo! I hope this means that I might also see you sometime soon.

    1. I’d love to. What evenings are you free?

      1. Most every evening. I normally work 6a-2p.

  6. *flying tackle* Welcome back!

    1. *oomph* Ow, I think you bruised my ovaries.

      1. Teehee :c)

        I’m glad you’re still around…missed you!

  7. Yay! Avdi is back!

    Even though I don’t see you very much anymore, I always enjoy reading your posts!

    1. I always enjoy plugging my laptop into your giant ****ing monitor. Thanks again 😀



    1. Aww. I never stopped reading, and I’ve tried to keep up with your entries, but I apologize for not being more comment-ey.

  9. Yay!

    Whining has it’s place. It’s good that you added in the “unless” part.

    1. Angst is better expressed than repressed, but it’s all too easy to substitute public pity for constructive action.

      Your comment reminds me, I meant to email you after the last time I saw you at Ascension. I’ll try and remember what about.

  10. i miss you to man.

    1. How are you doing? Did you get the email I sent you about R.A. Wilson?

      1. i did, and i have no i dea who he is, hehe.

        1. He wrote The Illuminatus! Trilogy.

  11. you live! sweetness:)

    1. Hey, I was just thinking of you. I was transferring archives from one PC to another over the weekend, and in the process looking at a lot of old chatlogs, and I realized “Dude! I used to talk to Kat a lot!”

      I think I can safely speak for Stacey as well when I say: we miss you!

  12. Rant on, young man! Rant on!

    1. Ah, but what shall I rant on?

  13. Re: /wb

    I heard teh interwebs cheated on me while I was gone.
