My Internet friends are the large majority of my friends and I love you all. I am going through a very hard time in my life just trying to keep Banjo alive as long as possible. I talk to several of you on the phone from time to time. If you nearly died in a tornado, or need help with dealing with Covid, or other serious issues, I will be there for you. That said, unless I am drunk and it is the middle of the night, I’m not going to call you (waves at atdLeft) or be able to take your calls.
I am always here to support you guys. But, I have my own shit going on. I have never spoken with the person who is my major support support system for the past couple of decades on the phone, despite having his phone number. He’s got his own shit going on. We are email only. The same is true for my “twin.” We keep in contact via email. Same for my sister. IT’S NOTHING PERSONAL!
I’m dealing with A LOT right now. I can barely keep my site running. Perhaps I should have made that more clear. I need to handle my business and can’t always be your sounding board. I know that sounds mean, clearly if I gave you my phone number I care about you and want to talk to you when I can. I just can’t right now. Unless you are in a personal crisis and we have discussed it already in emails. I can answer emails. And that seems to work for the people in a much bigger crisis situation. I’m an email person. I do not have a cell phone and I only drunk dial people, (sorry Atdleft and Nannette). But there is a LOT going on with me. And I need to prioritize tasks. Sorry if that makes me sound like a bitch. But you all have my email and that is where we can talk when I have a few minutes.
Sorry for the rant, but some people feel like I should be available at every moment and do not understand my schedule. Again, if I am working for you on a very serious situation that needs help, call if you need to. But, if you are just calling to chat, please stop. It’s a really bad time for that. Send an email.
I am really not trying to be a bitch but I have a shit ton of things to deal with at the moment.
