I also have to thank my lurkers -- digitallyfanged, jackscarab, kiapurity, maqqy96, spydabass, and zaphy. All of you (as well as others who are not visible) make up a big portion of my regular readers, and with your support you have actually pulled me out of a funk. I had eventually accepted that I was writing into the Void, and no one was reading what I wrote. It was freeing, but depressing. Now, thanks to LiveJournal, I see that you all actually do care after all. I just hope you and any others work up the courage to interact. Sometimes, I can be a bit stand-offish, but I appreciate the fact that you stopped by. Hopefully, we could befriend each other, and if not, then that's your loss, not mine.
I'm going to go and enjoy the holiday now. I hope your Christmas is as merry as mine.
