So okay....

I have been missing from Blogsville afterall. :

Bloggers Syndrome is catching up with me I'm afraid. There just doesn't seem to be anything really INTERESTING to write about in the moment.

I could waffle on for hours about Secondlife.com where I currently spend most of my free hours *blush* However, that is likely to bore you to tears really unless you're into the whole concept of strangely attired (let alone strangely behaved) avatars running about in a jerky, staccato fashion in virtual shopping malls where the walls are a pixel wide and both solid and penetrable all at the same time.

Still, the subjects that could be worthy to muse upon fade quickly from my mind almost as soon as I decide that they'd be good to blog about.

So anyway, perhaps its time to change blogging focus. Maybe I need to just TALK about any old stuff instead of trying too hard to come up with something that I, so arrogantly, deem as Intelligent Blogging Material (no IBM jokes please *snort*). There's only so much one can say about soulmates and Pah!

My mate (for my non-aussie readers, that's an Aussie colloquial term for friend/buddy/pal), Martin celebrated his 37th birthday this past week. Happy Birthday Martin :) I've yet to try Martini but I reckon I might this weekend just to see what its like. I'll make a belated birthday toast to you if I do :)

And I have been feeling decidedly GUILTY this past week too. I have all these lovely online girlfriends from years and years ago from a Aussie mum's forum I used to frequent. I loved those girls to bits!

Still do really. Thing is we've all gotten terribly busy with older kids now and we hardly ever get in touch anymore. Despite that wonderful thing called email... do I ever really use it to just WRITE to people I love/have loved? Not that much actually. So I have decided that I'll write the girls an email this weekend to just let them know I've been thinking of them and send them my love and good wishes their way.

I have lots of friendships with women that are like this when I think about it. Deep and lasting friendships but sporadic and intermissive (is there such a word?). I mean I can catch up with these women and pick up conversations where they left off last time rarely being stuck for words or wondering what to say because of the distance thus far. There are however, sometimes significant gaps of time in between those conversations where I think about them often but rarely make the effort to maintain the energetic to-and-fro of the original consistent friendship.

Maybe I'm just too selfish of my time. I do love my freedom but my friends are also vitally important to me too and I hold each and everyone of them dear to my heart; even if we don't get to spend hours deep in conversation like we used to.

So yeah. I don't have much other than the mundane to write about at the moment. The intention is now to make blogging less focussed on the heavy material and just let it flow as it so chooses. It seems that the Bloggers Syndrome symptom of TRYING TO BE RELEVANT has caught up with me too. Not that I think I ever really was relevant in here though.

Okay... enough now! :) and yeah I know I talk too much... Martin tells me that often so I know :)

Tell Martin happy birthday for me. (Mine's next month!)

And hey, I don't worry about "relevancy." I just like hearing from you. I check in with your blog every single day now, just to see what you're up to. (I love PageFlakes!)

darn it girl. You make me blush and brim with pride all at the same time.


So I need to write to "you" more often via here do I now? hahaha

let me just go fix lunch, sort the washing, upload this CD I want on iTunes (jeff martin's 'Exile and the kingdom' - solo debut and so very cool), do my german homework, tidy up this feral loungeroom I currently abide in, go to a 21st b/day party, do some quickbooks stuff, reconcile the credit card statement, find some money to pay our tax bill and have a cup of redbush tea

*grin*

I'll be back shortly dear EM Sky to write some strange little missive for you *HUG*

mitch

Sweet! Can't wait! (Will not hold my breath though... sounds like a long list.)

I love that by the way: "...tidy up this feral loungeroom..." Awesome! Write a story with that in it! :)

So does that mean I will get an e-mail soon LOL.
I do understand though about the guilt feeling as I am very guilty of not writing any e-mails myself. Much more fun reading what other people have written!
I am so slack right now I couldn't even be bothered closing the board and so therefore I still post occasionally, with a few die hard groupies.

Cheers

ROLS!!!! *Grin*

You have NO Idea how relieved I am to hear from you!!!!

I changed my server about 3.5 years ago, yeah well time just flies over here!! I don't have Moo's e-mail at all as she never came back to DUMs after moving down here. Will post my new email addy on the aussieboard for you as I had several reformats and lost a lot of addy's over the years due to that.

Cheers
