I just didn't see how any good could come of it. I had no desire to be seen as yet another orbiter, engaged in stupid subtle pissing contests and territorial displays.
There's just no point anyway. The winner was preemptively decided a long time ago.
Anyone but Dave is the fucking winner, okay?
I get it. It took me a while, but I get it.
There are lines that I will no longer cross, and I'm drawing new lines all over the place. I think that my hope is that eventually these lines will stack to form a new wall around me.
Meanwhile, I've got this damn thing staring me in the face.
Yesterday, on facebook, a group was formed consisting of former journalspace.com members. When that site died a couple of years ago, those of us in that community were left to scatter. Now a bunch of them are on facebook and they've formed a new group. I'm not really sure why. Just to see who's still alive, I guess. And to find out what everyone's real names are. On JS almost everybody used handles instead of names. I went by barenada for one blog and anonymousme for another.
I joined the group yesterday, having been invited by NakedGirl. A few people remembered me, and I remembered a few more. Weird to see them posting by their real names. Anyway...
Found ya! Yay. Have to find out what happened to that relationship with the woman, who you desparately loved, but missed the chance with!And now I don't have the slightest idea how to respond. So I'll probably say nothing.
