This place is like a ghost town. Four (4!) alerts all weekend. It stinks. What stinks even more is without the convenience of alerts, I simply don't have time to go visit 20+ journals each day. I'm learning bloglines, but y'all know that's not the same.
I've decided I'll keep The Purge purgin' on for the time being, and if it turns your stomach to visit, you can check out the mirror site at Happy Delusions (on my favorites list).
Yeah, call me a sellout or a jerk or a wimp or whatever, but I've honestly got bigger fish to fry. I sat down and pondered it, and I'm simply not ready to stop Purgin here. In the grand scheme of things, you just have to ask yourself "How important is it?". Yanno, with AIDS awareness, gay rights, human rights, people hungry in my little town, this STUPID war that no one wanted...2" x 4" ad banners...There are bigger and more important things to get uppidy about.
Go ahead, keep getting pissed. I've done my bit and I'll continue the letter writing, e-mail writing, commenting and raising my fist in the air because it really isn't cool what they've done. I'll just fight the good fight in a more passive-aggressive way than some of my more vocal friends.
Blogspot's great, mind you, but its not home. I'm hoping (praying) that the AOL losers who implemented this dirty little plan will become enlightened and change their ways. I'm also praying that this hiatus will be temporary. Yes, forever the optimist.
Meanwhile, I'll save y'all a place on the couch, and I'll keep your spot warm.
...and I hope you'll keep coming by.
