I Know It’s Been a While But Ouch…No…


My “regular” readers or followers etc… know that I was laid off from my job a year and a half ago.  Since then, beyond merely trying to gain employment etc…  Unimaginable things have happened.

Well, let’s chalk another one up on the board.  Fuck me.  A friend that I have known since 1997 (who knew all about my job loss–I contacted him immediately), fell off the radar.  Others did too.  I have been thinking of him.

Other, perhaps very long time readers, would know him as Mac Guru.

I checked my personal email account, and was astounded to see that we hadn’t emailed in a year! Well, surely contact was in order!

Now, how do you condense a year’s worth of information into one email? I tried to limit it to only certain things.  What I thought should be the most pertinent details? It took me a fair while to compose this email.  Then, I thought, I should move on to other people.  Yes, start with my Dear Mac Guru.  He was always the closest friend.

As I sent and exited…thought about who should be next…can you see it coming…

…BOUNCE!

No…no…!

Where did you go! You don’t live that far away from me! Every time you come to where I live you always call me and we meet for lunch, dinner, go shopping…

It’s been a year…!…

*PA crying*

No…

I still have his phone numbers.  I hope they haven’t changed too…

  3. Now this, is just too much. I won’t devote an entire post to it. There’s not much point, really. I just got a bounce from an email I sent to a fellow blogger! *shakes head*

    The blogger is still “alive,” so I’m quite sure I can rectify this situation. Also, this was a more standard type of “error,” as opposed to the above, where it was a “piss off, the person ain’t here!” type of “error.”

    Is the universe trying to tell me that no one wants to talk to me? *rolls eyes*

    Sometimes people are in our lives for only a season and that’s ok, and I doubt that it would reflect in anyway how good of a friend you are.

  5. Hi raginggenius. Thanks. In the meantime, I did manage to dig up an old/other email address, so I can try that and any phone numbers, as well?
