So this is my 10,000th post. That boggles my mind. I'd been waiting to make the post completely Shriek-centric, sort of as a tribute to my band, and to make this particular post a special thing. But I believe I have written everything that can be written about Shriekback, at least for now, so that is why I have not posted. I've been waiting for something new to write, but it's not happening.

The new computer I got had a faulty screen, so it went into the shop three weeks ago. In the interim, I'm on a loaner computer from Best Buy, which I had to wait for a week to get. Given my state of mind and my emotional state, the people on Facebook went berserk because I suddenly fell silent. I know they were expecting the worst and, honestly, I have seriously considered living up to that bleak expectation.

I need to get out of here.

The Mother Unit is thinking about retiring (her birthday was 9 May) and moving out here, so we can combine our Wonder Twin powers. I also suggested that I pack up what few things I find important, and go out to San Diego, so her life wouldn't be turned so upside down. My life is already upside down, so it wouldn't be much of an issue. I should know something concrete by the end of the month.

I feel like if I could change my haunted situation, I would be able to write here more, and not be so depressing when I do post. Until that happens, the posts here will remain sporadic, as will my general visits to LJ. We'll see what the near future holds.

Hi there Pumpkin,
and congrats to your 10 000th!
You have been missed.

Hope that all will work out fine with the Mother unit.

All the Best!

Sincerely yours,

Oleander 56
Good luck, Tin. Part of me thinks a major change of scene would be good for you, and that starting over in San Diego might give you a new lease on life. But don't abstain from posting just because you are in a down place. It is good to see your posts - even when you are feeling low. You are always an engaging writer, and beyond that, we care!
Thank you, love. I care about all you, too. That's why I'm so self-conscious about bringing you down with what I have to say.
Hmmm, goat ate my reply.

Congratulations on the milestone. I wish it were under better circumstances, but I hope you can change your direction on your own terms and soon!
Congrats on the 10K mark!

You remain in my prayers.

Would you be interested in this as a diversion?


If so, let me know and I will send you an invite...


Congratulations on 10K and I have my fingers crossed that you and your mother can work out living arrangements nearer to one another. Keep us posted.

Peace and love and all that stuff....
