Nite Mirror
Ok new post time. I'm tired. I was woken up in the middle of last night with one of my parent's non-emergency emergencies and I had to get dressed and go over there in the rain to deal with it.

Then I played some low limit poker when I got back to unwind.

I would have played my pirate game instead, but my pirate game plans have been scuttled for a bit. I didn't know there were banking gnomes in ypp's puzzle pirate game, but "Captain Cleaver and the piratey banking Gnomes" sent me an email concerning the matter that has scuttled my mem'ing plans for the Midnight Ocean. I wonder if those banking gnomes have any connection with Gringots Bank.

In other news, I don't know why I was, but I was a bit surprised by some comments I received in a friends only post to an expression on loneliness I made (the entry before this one), and being the idiot I am, decided to take a break from lj because of them.

We'll work on getting the egotistic, horrible-joke making person I used to be back when I get around to future entries here. The only question is how do I get the center of the universe to come to me -- after all, I'm far too important to lower myself to go to it. ;-)

Well, I need to get moving. I'm driving Dad to a doctor's appointment, and it's getting time I start getting ready for that. Plus there is a dog pressing her cold nose against my forearm as I'm typing this. I think she wants me to let her out now too.

Later all.

I hope it wasn't anything I said...

Jen, I need it to be you because otherwise it's me. Dang. It's me, it's always me.

Hey NM, you can have the center of the universe back because I'm tired of the damn thing revolving around me for now.

We'll take care of those icky gnomes next week. No worries.

It wasn't anything anyone said.

I'm just surprised by what are throw away comments to me being picked up by others and taken in a way that, again to me, is exaggerated to a degree I hadn't expected.

Apparently my own communication skills aren't what I thought they were, and I am continuing to feel like I'm putting my foot in my mouth the more I say in that entry and now this one too.

In retrospect, ... well, I'm not sure even my hindsight is 20/20, but it is better than my ... foresight(? is that the word I want?) and I can now see how it could cause the comments it did -- including one person's comment that disappeared before I saw it here (although I just got around to reading the emailed version -- and my faulty communications here seems to be fitting in perfectly with that person's comment too and makes me question the reply I sent there too ::::sigh:::::).

(note: I hope you're both seeing this reply rather than having it here twice)

I removed what I said because my post went unanswered for so long that I felt I had deeply offended. You had replied to the other comments that had been made yet not mine.

Then when you did not post for days I felt I had offended to the point where I had angered and/or hurt you and I felt I should remove myself from your lj. This is all. I thought it was what you might want.

For what it is worth I am sorry. I have not said anything about this in my own journal but did not want to leave this matter hanging.

No, Joy, nothing you said offended me. I'm sorry you read the wrong thing from my silence too. As you said, I have been depressed. That's no secret.

I'm tempted to write more. However, for fear of getting more than the foot that is already so far in my mouth I'm licking my knee, I'll just leave it at what I've said.
