The Gates of Horn and Ivory

Two Gates the silent House of Sleep adorn; Of polish'd Iv'ry this, that of transparent Horn:
True Visions thro' transparent Horn arise; Thro' polish'd Iv'ry pass deluding Lies.

    30% of my town still doesn't have power, and we're supposed to get 8-12 inches of snow tomorrow.

    It started too late for afternoon sledding and too early to go out tonight. You made it home before it started?

    Surprisingly enough he called me two days ago, and not drunk-dialing either! He sounds to be doing quite well, but money is tight and his town is hurting economically, he has not been getting much work as a result.

    He may come visit me, which would be fantastic... I want to see all my net peoples again all the time.

    My ears were burning.

    Sometimes I come here and I just don't have anything to say. I'm weirdly antisocial like that. I'll sit and read, and have nothing worth contributing. Other times I come by and make an ass out of myself like old times. Lately, I've been letting Facebook sit on the page so it doesn't send me text alerts, and reading about politics, religion, science, or playing a game.

    Hmm yeah. I was gonna make a thread about that once but decided it wasn't necessary. That is, about how we all come here, look around, and that is it. :D It is strange to still visit everyday, knowing that there aren't a dozen people likely to have said something. I suppose we are all mostly drama-free now as well, even though we liked to say that about ourselves however many years ago. I can hardly remember anything I used to talk about to work out what's different. Perhaps younger people just want to be heard, and now... we've heard it all and people are basically doing the same stuff. Cartwheel.

    I do think that there is meaning in coming here, I don't think it is just habitual. There is a sense of comfort to me here. I know if this place did not exist I would miss it. And I will miss it...it will not be here forever. Even now the vb is slowly crumbling as we are not paying for the upkeep, though I guess I could. We were going to become an invisiboard or something like that but it never happened.

    Open up the community chest! lol. I think I would cry if this place disappeared. So many good memories. I have that feeling of comfort here too, there's no other place I've been coming to for so long. But I agree with what Dave is saying, we are kinda more drama free. I still like to gab about bullshit, but I don't really go online to do it anymore. Kinda keep it to myself because I don't expect everyone else to care a whole lot about my meaningless life.
