So, I'm back *brushing cobwebs out of his hair* and this place hasn't changed much except I see that Blogger has some new fancy bells and whistles since the last time I made a post almost three and a half years ago.
For all that time I've been exercising my editorial prowess at a couple forums that I've enjoyed immensely, but it finally happened. I didn't think it would happen on an internet forum, especially one with so many erudite and esteemed individuals, but being the hopeless introvert that I am, I hit that social wall- could not handle being in the thick of so many voices. I don't regret the time I spent there one bit, and perhaps some of my cronies will stop by here and say hello, one on one. I even made a few personal friends over there with one from Austria staying here with us for a few days in the summer of 2010.
The scope of that forum was somewhat, but not totally, limited to bringing about awareness of fundamentalist religion's effect on education and American society in general, which has been one of my hot buttons for many years; but it caught up with me and frankly, a sense of fatigue set in and overtook me so I am stepping away to evaluate where I've been and what options are available for a semi retired old curmudgeon. I've changed a few other of my daily conditioned routines. It's not like I don't have plenty of stuff to do with Mrs Froggie and the dog, and I've got a hundred hobbies, on paper, but something is pulling me- what, I'm not sure. What I am sure of is that I had to make a change, just for me and spend some time in contemplation of the future.
I finally decided to hole up here for a while and write about whatever I want while not giving a single actual fuck if anyone reads me or not. Maybe I'll even post a whole bunch of rules on the side bar that will allow me to trump up charges against those who disagree with me and ban the bastards; but probably not. After all, free speech is very important to me for reasons that I might even write about if I get around to it; but probably not.
Having said all that, which is pretty close to nothing at all, I'm not even sure what my next post will be, but there will be one, I'm pretty sure. Maybe it could be a short history of vagueness. We shall see!
PS There was a glitch in the system so I had to delete this post and reload it. Thanks to Chris for saying hello in the comments of the first post.
