…dear moppets, as in “I am the” because I’ve been AWOL.  My impromptu hiatus turned into a full-on disappearance.  If this was old-school LiveJournal, I could totally pretend that something important happened and that I had to be alone for a while, but we’d all know I was lying. 

(Actually…we all knew those LJ posts were lies too.  The ones that were like, “Hey, y’all.  Sorry i havent posted ina while, I’ve jsut got a lot of thingz goin’ on and i had to get my head on str8….”  No, you didn’t.  You totally felt unloved, so you hid out from the internet for a while and waited just long enough for people to go, “Hey, where’s lolz8482?” so you could come back and have people be all, “YAY!  We missed you!”  Except they don’t, which just depresses you further and leads you farther down your emo spiral….*ahem*  Sorry.  I apparently have leftover LJ-hate…)

Anyways, I will be attempting to pick back up soon.  Besides, you guys have been SO AWESOME with that name post that I feel like I don’t even have to post anything else! 

Okay, that’s not true.  But I’m trying to assuage my guilt here…  Between the posts I’m not putting up here, the questions that aren’t getting answered on APW because we have SO MANY and the weight I’m not losing, I’m one giant guilt ball.

I know.  Oh my life is so hard.  My poor first world problems…  Hush.  Let me wallow for a moment.

Anyway, I will be back on Monday with more posts and hopefully a few changes in the site. 

Maybe.  Don’t hold me to it. 

And love me.  Love me long time.

      Ditto. Glad everything is mostly ok. Don’t worry about the absence – guilt’s no fun. See you Monday or whenever!

    Oh how I’ve missed you! But the name post was a high note to go out on for a little while.

    Yay! I missed you! I really did 🙂 But hey, the internet can be a time-suck, even if you are clearly full of blogging awesomeness. Real life calling? Pick up the phone, sister! See you again Monday-ish!

    I wish we “knew” each other during my LJ days. Because that would have been awesome. 🙂

      To be fair, my LJ account was pretty much like this one. Except with a lot more inside college jokes because I had maybe 20 friends on LJ and I’d gotten hammered with probably every one of them.
      Oh, the young days of social media. Back in the day when AIM competed with ICQ and Napster was still hella cool…

    I was wondering where you were!! Hope everything is A-OK!

    Also, I totally still use my LJ. I have very few “friends” on there, so it’s the one online outlet I have to say whatever the hell I want! I appreciate that in my own little way 🙂

    I’m relieved to know you aren’t always the bundle of energy and go-get-it-ness that you seem to be.
    Take care of yourself first, and then worry about us. We miss you, but we shouldn’t be on the internet as much as we are. Or maybe that’s just me.

    (I’m glad you’re here today, as you helped me get my big white a** out of bed and through a 1/4 mile power walk before the sun was up. It would have been longer, but my arthritis wasn’t pleased to be put through that after the storms yesterday. I can haz 80 year old knee? Gee, thanks. Well, frankly, none of my body was happy, but I’ll blame the knee and see about going longer next time.)

      OOHHH…I just discovered that our little road is twice as long as I thought. Which means I went just over 1/2 mile. Yay me!
      Not that any of you have to care, but I’m proud of my big jiggly a** for doing it again today, and I had to share somewhere. 🙂

    Aw being a giant guilt ball is no fun, been there.

    And I’m sure I’ll only add to it by saying that I *do* miss your blog updates… so I won’t. 😉

    (and that LJ emo-disappearance thing made me LOL – dead on).

    Dear Alyssa,

    I adore you. I just discovered your blog about a month ago and in a totally non creeper kinda of way have been hooked ever since. I’m usually too lazy / shy/ lame/ *insert excuse* to actually comment but I am trying to change my ways!

    Screw that giant guilt ball and blog whenever you’re ready. Something tells me everyone will still be here cheering you on when you return. Know why? Because, You = awesome

    (True story. I saw it on google so it’s legit)

      Don’t ever be too shy! You’re not a creepster, you just have excellent taste. 🙂
