I am back!

Posted on 11/10/2012 3:55:47 PM PST by petuniasevan

After spending years (years!) away I have returned to this forum. I apologize to those who thought I dropped off the face of the Earth; I had Real Life issues and a certain hobby overwhelmed my remaining time.

FR is much different than when you were here last.

The amount of quick wit and clever humor is WAY down.

We could use more old timers. ;o)

I came on board to FR back in ‘98, and was quite active for some time. A few years ago, I just mainly lurked. But, in the past few months, I’ve been posting a little more. I needed to be with “like-minded” folks. Thank God for you, my freeper friends!! I do believe I’d lose my mind without this site.

"a certain hobby"?

You can't just leave it like that! If you don't have a note from your mother to excuse your absence, at least you must tell us about the hobby.

Ok folks: first of all I’m a she not a he. Second, no I did NOT spend time behind bars :P
The hobby in question was my overwhelming addiction to online video games (and I do still play). I let it take over my life for quite a long time... but the advantage was I quit spending money on almost everything else, and the games cost nothing near what other forms of entertainment do.

And thanks to all who welcomed me back.

PS. A lot of these names here ring a bell; good to see the old guard is still alive and posting.

I have spent now 12 years in a union workplace. I am consistently surprised at the number of people who automatically swallow the union line......but there are quite a few who think for themselves in spite of the barrage of propaganda and distortions.
