Answer: It's cause they don't give a shit!
Good to see you around again, Freaky. :D I'm happy for you getting the new job and having your Plan B.
You actually crossed my mind a few days ago, so it's weird but awesome you popped up.
I'm sure they were nice thoughts you were having about me - I'm also sure it rains chocolates on Wednesdays! ;)
Good to see you!
When Nemo was being a real shit about not letting us sleep, we tried waking him up all day long. It didn't work.
I've actually always wondered about adopting that approach myself, but I've never tried it out - probably because the thought of a sleep deprived cat going into a psychotic state kind of scares me (a lot!) *lol*.
*Lol* Now that might just be the title of my autobiography ;)

They could, they just choose not to, as it amuses them to no end to annoy us....
And, yay!!!! It's you!!
It is me, a very thankful me. Your emails got me through some pretty rough times, so I am eternally thankful...note I did not say "indebted" as one day I may be rich ;P
SO glad to see you!!!!! I TOTALLY get the whole "once in a blue moon" posting thing and am more than guilty of it myself. Just want you to know you were sorely missed and oft thought of! *HUGS*
Awww, you sure know how to make a guy smile :)! I saw your update a while back and I actually cheered that there was an update from you - I might have to put blue cellophane over the moon...Hmmm, did I steal that from a corny '60s song without realising it? It kind of has that sound to it *lol*.
*waves* nice to see you :)
*Waves back* Nice to not feel quite so much like a stalker now when I read your LJ :)
YAYAYAYAYAY!!! I was just wondering about you the other day....thinking about the time you came to NY and never got to meet me...but met my now-Hubby at the time. Come visit us in NY soon!
It's so weird that whole intertwining of lives, I mean heck, it's not like NYC is small like Adelaide, or the town my Dad's house is in! I think a visit may well be in order one of these days :)!
Reading this post from you makes me so happy that if you lived closer, I would invite you over for something extremely, extremely naughty. ;D
Well you could always set up a webcam and....Yeah, look who hasn't changed *LOL*.
It was rocky for a while, but that is par for the course I guess. How are you doing? You keep those emotion things and LJ separate most of the time, but that doesn't mean I think you are emotion-free! :)
*glomps onto you* I MISS YOU
i will never leave lj as long as you still -might- post. it is happymaking that you have good news!!
if you sleep 6 hours and the cats sleep 20 then there is 2 hours overlap and that is more than enough to function on. now that you have more reasonable hours your cat does not have as much of a pressing need to wake you up for work, therefore because cats are smarter than we are (with some notable and present exceptions, miaow) you can expect that if you ask nicely, explain clearly, and does the cat food with kitty rohypnol...
I can't honestly say that I have ever been glomped before, though I must admit it was rather pleasant :).
I will hold you to this promise!
*LOL* Yeah, I can see me getting busted with rohies and telling the cops it was for the cats. They didn't believe it when that guy claimed it about the porn sites (Ehh, he said the cat smooshed his keyboard and sent him there, not that he was giving the links to his cat *GRIN*), but in my case it would be true, that's just how my life is :P
Okay I will have to enumerate this reply as well. :)
1. No apologies necessary. It is good to know you are hanging in there, but this is your LJ to do with as you choose. See the little "Blogging Without Oligation" button on my LJ.
2. I would have guessed it was the airline companies paying you to not write, because I was about to fly to Australia and start looking for you.
3. That does make sense that you "miss us less" - it's like getting letters from someone even if you can't write back. At least you know what they're up to.
4. I am glad things are getting brighter. It will be interesting to see if your feelIngs tie in at all to your work situation. I am hopeful that your new job (which sounds awesome!) will help you keep a brighter outlook. I know it's way more than that, but I also know a bad job cam make a bad emotional patch worse. Did I ever link you to Hyperbole and a Half? It's an awesome comic/blog and her latest one is about depression. I don't know that it's any big help or anything but I just felt like she really gets it. http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com
5. Am I on 5? I'm on m iPod and the reply window is so small, I can't see my previous number. Anyway, I was going to say congratulations on your new job and I am excited and hopeful for you! I kind of already said that above, but it's worth repeating.
6. Since there are only 24 hours in a day, if you sleep 6 and cats sleep 20, you should at least overlap by 2. 20+6=26. 26-24=2. You know, in case you needed to see the math. :)
Well had I known you were going to try and track me down I'd have stayed away - and not because it would be fun to play a game of "Around the world hide and seek", though now you mention it perhaps we have the ingredients of a new reality tv show right there - similar to The Amazing Race!
I really felt "tortured" sometimes, I had things I wanted to say but my fingers would just freeze at the keys and then I'd just consider my views, opinions, feelings etc. as worthless anyway and go back to my self absorbed misery - I should have started an emo band *lol*.
I've not been linked to that site, but I will be checking it out, so be concerned if it's garbage ;).
I am so thankful for your math skills. I won't go into how long it took me to realise my icon was humourous and not a statement of fact ;)
7 is lucky yet again :)!
It goes without saying (but I will anyway) that I am THRILLED to see you back. Since I have begun posting again, I have missed the wit and wisdom of the Freak.
Job hunting sucks. Bill spent from July of 2010 till August of 2011 doing it while working at a cell phone repair company for a little above minimum wage. Finally he got on at Eastman Chemical in Kingsport and we are good. Here's praying that you get into a good situation (the hardware place sounds promising) where you can settle in and be comfortable.
Ah, Depression....my long-time nemesis. I have been on medication for it for over 20 years, and while it certainly takes the edge off, there is no magic pill that words all the time, as you know. Please know that many people here love you and use that mantra when it gets very bad. I often use Bill, C, and bluesilverkdg (Kim) to keep me grounded when it gets very bad.
So glad to see you back! :D
Wit and wisdom eh? Wow, absence truly does make the heart grow fonder *lol*.
Minimum wage, that's about 6 cents an hour and a stale cookie at Christmas in the US yeah? Damn Capitalism - Oh come on, you didn't really expect me to resist did you??!! I am so glad things have improved, you guys really deserve it, it just sucks how many people are finding it so tough and how employers are abusing that...I am resisting another Capitalism comment here, call it my welcome back present to you *lol*.
Thus far I have avoided all medications for depression. I am lucky, I can function, albeit very low level and I just convince myself I am feeling it for a reason - though truth is the "reason" is probably that I am too stupid and stubborn to get meds :P. I am truly a lucky guy to have such a great network of people here on LJ - I also don't have to wear pants when I'm hanging out with them!
Why thank you...Oh and I'd have said it in a Disney voice but it just wouldn't have worked via text on a computer screen (Actually it wouldn't have worked in person either, but shhh *lol*)
'ello, 'ello person I must visit again :)
It's been so long since you've posted! But, alas I cannot make fun of you as it's been almost a year since I have. Should I amend it? I don't think many people on my flist read LJ any more. What do you think?
