[Mods: Bearing in mind that I’ve been essentially away for the past two years, I looked through ATMB and the MPSIMS stickies for any new rules about this sort of post/thread. If I missed anything, I know you’ll let me know:)]
Hi there, folks. 's me, your punha. (Nobody tried to replace me while I was gone, right?)
At least a handful of you probably know who I am. ::waves:: Hiya. The rest of you … well, tossing out a handful of old-school references would be sorta like name-dropping; it’d tell you what you needed to know, but it’d also kinda rub it in yer faces that I’m older than you are (take those last five words and put them in an annoying sing-songy voice and I think you’ll see where I was going with that).
So anyway. For those wondering why I’m back, the answer is at once easy and anything but. I found myself, minutes ago, with a shiny new e-mail in my inbox. The text said that I had a one-year subscription to the SDMB.
Now, this would have made perfect sense to me had I gone and gotten one. Evidently some lovely soul has removed from me the onus of doing so. I don’t know who, and until I find out, I ain’t sayin’ another word about it. (As I mentioned in my journal, which at least a few of you read, not everyone wants public thanks or … anything at all … for doing stuff for other people. Being such a person, I have desire not the first to bring any discomfort to whoever did this.)
Beyond that, … um … ::waves again:: I’m kinda just a touch lost around here, what with having been, y’know, gone for the past two years. The plan to read the board at least once or twice a week faded like you would not even believe, replaced by other things. (Those of you who remember me from my “YOU SPELLED A WORD WRONG IN YOUR POST, AND I AM HERE TO TELL YOU!” days will no doubt be … happy … to know that I now co-mod a livejournal grammar community and head up copy editing efforts at three student media publications.)
So what’s new with you? I mean, I could talk about myself for the next thousand words, but Anita Vacation (HAH! I still remember the [sub]incredibly simple[/sub] coding!) told me a few years ago that anything beyond two screens is more than she’s willing to read, and I imagine those of you who don’t know/remember me probably don’t care quite as much about this as a very few of you might. Plus, talking about myself for a thousand words is effectively a job interview or explaining a thing or two to my girlfriend’s parents, and ain’t none of you employing me or (oh, I so dearly hope) in her family tree.
::waves for the third time::
