If this were Facebook, I'd like your reply.
Thank you, Wrey, glad to see you're still around!
I remember you! Welcome back.
Hey, guys. Long time no see? Seriously, it's been too long for anyone who remembers me from a year or so ago lol Life's been keeping me pretty busy but I figured it wouldn't hurt to get back on here
[MENTION=19087]Taylee91[/MENTION] - great to see you back! You have definitely been missed. Hope all has been going well for you.
Due to pressures at home, I'm going to be taking an unknown amount of time away. It could be as little as a few days, or as long as a year, I don't know at the moment. Hopefully the former. Play nice while I'm gone
I missed the existence of this thread, so I forgot to announce my temporary absence. In any case, I'm semi-back.
I think it's time for a short sabbatical from this forum. Too many repetitive topics, too many "I'm right and you're wrong" arguments and a resulting increased level of irritability on my part that serves no positive purpose.
Know whatcha mean, Ed. Hope to see you back soon. Enjoy the fresh, crisp New York air.
:-( I'll miss you, Ed. Hope you return relatively soon.
Blimey, it's been a while since I was around these climes.
Wot, wot! Banzai!
Hey, it's the Mattman! Good seeing you.
Fishing is fun. I'll miss you though.
Well this is no good. I get back from a 2-week break from my computer, to find you've gone fishing? I understand the impulse, but please come back soon. You're one of my favourite contributors.
Not really leaving but I thought I should mention until I finish my sci-fi short story, I'm postponing any lengthy contributions to two of the heavier discussions, female gender under/misrepresentation in movies/stories, and that whole side track in the poverty and religion thread about how rude atheists are. So I'm still around, and still posting less time consuming comments but to do those two noted subjects justice I'll come back to them after the 20th.
Ah. It seems a week was exactly what was needed, along with a bottle of hand crafted, oak filtered, well-aged perspective.
Alas, the fish were not biting. I did, however, manage to move the ball downfield somewhat on my current project, so I'm hoping to maintain momentum going forward.
I must say, it is lovely to come back to the well-wishes of good friends. Cog, Liz, Duchess, and Jannert, thank you so very much.
That the fish are not biting may be a good thing, depending on whether you are fishing or skinny-dipping,
Welcome back, Ed! Missed you around here.
Glad you're back, Ed!
Edit: and gal.
Ginger, that's a very funny post (the atheist bit). Glad to see you have a healthy sense of humor.
I didn't leave with much fanfare, but I hope to be back and active over the next two months around here. Great to see the site isn't slowing down
i'm out for a smoke break. brb.... I'll be back soon, no worries
R.I.P. my generic cartoon Arab guy avatar. The Lawrence of Arabia fantasy never to be...
New av more accurately portrays who I am, anyway. A stunning likeness.
Oh no you! I haven't seen you since I got the booted from that "other" place.
