Day 179

Just playing you guys, I don't know what I'd do without you.

Wait, yes I do. Have a long ass day. Anyway....

30 posts in thirty days.

30 random facts about me.

Fun Fact #29: I'm not as popular as I think I am.

Last night, before I passed out from lack of sleep, I thought about doing a little experiment. I wondered if I were to disappear from any online activity for 24 hours, would anyone care.

The answer, I found, was a resounding NO.

I got one email from my writing partner, DS, 2 quick IM's from Chesty McSparkles (her name, not mine), and... that's it.

Not one Twit asking where I was. Not one text from anybody except for The Addiction and HAWT, and that's because we extend outside of internet parameters. Nobody cared that I didn't say one word today.

At first, it kinda bothered me. I'm from the old school of journalism, if they aren't talking about you (good or bad), you're worse off than you think. I rather be talked BADLY about then to be not talked about at all. Then, I thought about people's real situations in life. How, to some people, technically, I'm not real.

And I understand that. I'm just some words on a web page in cyberspace. If something happens to me, hey, I'm replaceable. The next fat man with intelligent wit that comes along gets my spot. NQA, NSA. (No questions asked, no strings attached) I just wish that it wasn't like that.

Alas, it is. And I'm cool with that.

I'm just not popular enough to care.

Fun Fact #29: I'm not as popular as I think I am.

Considering the fact that you announced your departure, of course your departure wouldn't be commented on. Next time don't tell your control group what the hypothesis of the experiment is or what you're giving them.

Additionally, seeing as how I've fallen back on Twitter, don't really post on FB, and we don't talk every day on AIM, I'm excluding myself from this post.

Well, to you two I say this:

While I did announce my departure to 5 of you, (excluding you, Diora, for the reasons you outlined lol), it was only to 5 of you.

I don't think anybody goes back and reads through all my twitter messages.

And again, I told 5 people. Which leaves somewhere in the area of 150 other people (not just on Twitter) that could've said something to me yesterday. I didn't even surf the net at work, I simply put on my thinking cap and sat at my desk. I knew even opening Firefox would subject me to checking my email, which would lead to my blog, which would lead to FB, etc. LOL
