    Hiatus

    In case anybody might be wondering at my absence I have decided to take a necessary vacation from the forum. Apparently I have become quite objectionable in my posting, and feel a time out is appropriate to gain perspective. Take care.

    I can't imagine how, but if that's how you feel we'll wait up for you. Come back soon.

    Incidentally, I might have to join you briefly on that hiatus*. I have a few loose ends to tie up at school and work, and I've also been feeling my perspecitve slip away.

    * Meaning that I may take one as well, of course. I wasn't planning to track you down

    Hope to see you soon as well Kathy. I did not notice any of the posts you were mentioning, but I will trust your need to get away for a while. We'll miss you.

    Cuppa, I understand your reasons completely. Although I am in the same boat in regards to studies, I always manage to find time to make a post or two while I am at work (right now hehe).

    Well wishes on your breaks.

    Well, it could be fun. I know some nice vegetarian eateries in Boston.

    Now wait a minute I was just getting comfortable and feeling at ease. Sigh. The long suffering wife gets real tired of the mantra--if 'I" like something/someone they leave. Where's that grump smiley. Must print checklist. Hurry back. Please.

    This isn't because I sent you a private message, is it? If it will make you stay, I promise I will never try to contact you again!

    Well if they object to you, can you imagine what they think of me.

    Thank you for your kind and supportive comments. I apologize for behaving in such a histrionic fashion. I hope you all understand how nice it is for me to read your posts in the forum, to understand why you hate Wuthering Heights or Catcher in the Rye or why you love them or any other book and all the other wonderful (and silly) things that go on around here. Nice is such a dull and inadequate word to describe the feeling...

    It isn't my intention to stir things up...I need perspective because it is becoming more and more difficult for me to push things down to a comfortable mental level where I can relate to people...to post, play forum games and so on. I want to be here, but I don't want to wear out my welcome.

    My health has become very bad. My present is filled with a great deal of physical and emotional pain and my future does not appear optimistic. It becomes hard to maintain an even emotional keel when inside is in such turmoil. I only say this to help people understand my perspective, so please, from here on in, just forget about it. I expect I will be here for a while yet, insulting any PAM unlucky enough to fall into my clutches.

    ps. Basil, you can contact me any time you like. Sillyhead.
