Lost in the Internet… Again

I wonder how many people show up here every day, running for our lives from some other site?

It looked like fun. It was fun, at first, when I met all the cool people and left comments on all their posts. And then… It was like when you move into a new house, in an unfamiliar neighborhood, one you rented at what seemed like a great rate until you moved in and realized the house next door was home to Larry the dogfighting impresario, Moe the paranoid gun “collector,” and Curly the crackhead.

At least I got out of the lease.

This is much more promising, even if this first installment is a little shaky. I’ve got several friends over here I’m trying to find, and before long my natural contrariness will kick in and I’ll find I have something interesting to say. Or bitch about. Or rail against. In any case, this looks like a cool place to do it.

  2. Breaking the lease can be difficult, but the neighborhood went to hell. You’re better off in a new home. Welcome, if you need help settling in let me know.

  3. Hi, Steve! I like the new neighborhood better already. For one thing, there are no zombies roaming the streets…

  4. Love the tiger. I can’t be John O or johnno here, so I’ve reverted to my Tigernet moniker.

  5. Oh, please. You love that name and you know it. I can’t wait to see what image you put with it…

    As your real estate agent, may I be the first to offer you this laurel and hardy handshake. Welcome to the new digs!

    Will bigcocky be settling in some time soon too?

  7. Wanda Rizzuto Says:

    WHAT? My comment is awaiting moderation? What kinda shit is that?

  8. I was hoping you could tell me!
    I hope bigcocky makes the leap. I think I’ll let him explain the name when he gets here — and I can’t wait to see what image he puts with it…

  9. Here’s how you get rid of the moderation: click the “Options” tab at the top of the dashboard. Go to “Discussions”. Uncheck the “An administrator must always approve the comment” box.

    Yours in BONGOid helpfulness.

  10. You lived next to Moe, Larry and Curly too? Gee, what a small world!

    Welcome to the neighborhood!

  11. Wanda Rizzuto Says:

    You mean there’s an explanation that goes with bigcocky? Can’t wait to hear that one.

  12. Hi everyone! Bobby G, I tried that last night, but I’ve somehow tangled myself up in this system like a cat in yarn. I wrote to feedback to beg my way out.
    Is there anyone else here from one of the other, uh, old neighborhoods that I’ve forgotten?

  13. Welcome! I’m bringing the wine over for the blogwarming party!

  14. Well, it took me a minute to figure out who you are! Hello!

  15. Hi everyone! Wow, almost all of the gang is here. (And I finally got to the bottom of the comment moderation thing, which I screwed up on my first day…)
    Wurdz, did you say wine?…

  16. Hi! Welcome to the ‘hood! Wanna see my gun collection?

    My identity has been stolen. I could not register here as Slackermom. Apparently some copycat wannabe is impersonating me at WordPress. I had to settle for being The Antimother.

  18. Hey tigereye,
    I’m thinking of moving. Would you recommend this neighborhood? ~k

  19. Wanda Rizzuto Says:

    Two questions:

    1. Do I know monet100?
    2. Why doesn’t The Artist Formerly Known As Slackermom come visit me? Doesn’t she know who I am?

  20. Wanda, you may know me from that other neighborhood tigereye has eluded to in her post. Do I know you? ~k

  21. Wanda Rizzuto Says:

    Well Monet, if you go to that other neighborhood and search for grev3, there I will be. I know who you are now.

  22. Another thing I love about you guys — I’m not the only one easily confused.

  23. Ah, so that’s who you are Wanda! Nice to see you here! Although I have absolutely NO idea how this site works yet. ~k

  24. I’m glad to see familiar faces here :)I have a lot to learn so it may take some time before I’m posting.

  25. antimother Says:

    But where are you going to get Borders gift cards now?

    I have to keep posting over there. I still have a lot of books to buy.

    Actually, I don’t. Let me try to figure it out.
