Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

welcome home @ 10:55 pm

Current Mood: sad sad

Wow, what a trip.

I'm not going to write much because I have little energy. But yes, it's true, I was</bz> supposed to be back on Monday. It's also true that I didn't have internet the whole time I was gone. And yes, it's true. Because I missed my flight on Monday, had the flight cancelled due to tornadoes in Memphis, and flew today, I didn't find out until tonight's internet enlightenment that my cog in the great machine has been removed. I would be much less disappointed had I not lost by one vote in a run-off that I could have at least tried to mitigate by voting for ... yep you got it ... myself. Heck, I did well. I went farther than I thought I would have ever gone. But one vote? What a welcome present eh?

All of these delays and this disappointment tonight were all worth it though. I got to see Holly. Hey, at least we got to spend two extra full days together due to the delays. Those days made it that much harder to say goodbye today when we finally figured out that I would most likely be making it back to Little Rock. I miss her so much, and can't wait to get back there very soon.

That's all.
*goes back to crying in his root beer. mmmmmmm, root beer.

I was really bummed myself. I will most likely do the home game thing just to improve my writing and also to keep up with my mantra of never giving up. They can't get rid of me that easily. I was thinking a few days ago that if I'd have voted for myself, there would have been two ties. How cool would that have been. Oh well. I can still participate in sheepstations? right?

They won't stop me. Sure, I skipped the current events topic, but if you were me, what would you do? :D. I WILL be back next season, and next season, I'm playing. Need to increase my non lj idol friendslist, but that I hope to do.

skip it - no questions!!! ::grin::

good to hear! i can't wait for the next season to start...
well you're well on your way to doing that. :)
my flist is pretty good at creeping into other people's so if you ever want to have a frenzy - let me know - i'll do up a nice little banner for you so we can promote it around ::grin::

And I may have to ask you to help me fix my lj look more ... um ... visually appealing. I'm using an s2 style which I like, but I haven't edited it in ages. Perhaps I'll use all of my newly-found time that I've got now that I've been axed for the time being to make my page look like I'm worth reading. You'd be probably better at doing such things :).

I just wish it wasn't such a popularity contest and that it was more weighted to the writing.

i'd be happy to help out. i'm not too funtastic when it comes to the code side of things - i use thefulcrum's code to do mine. but i'd be happy to make you a header if you wanted.

i think i'd think the same if i wasn't such a crap writer... ::wink::
but i'll never be able to compete on that level so i like the game playing.

What I need to do is learn how to write tha code. Thanks for offering to help, means a lot to me.

I'm not sure if I'm a really good writer, but I think I'm ok. I've definitely improved, and that, I'm glad about.

I'm glad you're back in the game. I sent spydielives a message to get you back on. YOu deserve it.

In other news, I probably should increase my icon library too. Hell, I should use my permanent account status for something :). So many things to do.

yeah - i'm going to be working on learning more of the code too!

i think you are! i think the field is really close at the moment... it's horrible. i'm glad for the development too. i need it and i like it.

::blush:: thanks. i'm kind of glad to be back. it's a lot of pressure.

yes you should ::wink:: i'll be glad to help with that too. check out my community at rubberduck_icon i take requests ::smile::

Sorry to see you go. One should *always* vote for oneself - I know I always do!

Couldn't agree with you more. But if one has no internet, on can't easily vote for oneself :). Oh well, there's always next time.
