Taking A Break Until Tomorrow Afternoon

Just thought I would let everyone know

Best wishes in your absence. I'll try and keep it clean in the meantime.

I will be taking a break until tomorrow morning. Unless I get bored this evening. In that case I just may have to sign in again to see what is up on the old DM.

I am just returning from a long absence.

I've been lurking, but will be lurking a little less frequently over the next few weeks.

I haven't posted for years, so I am back, but have to take a break tonight while I sleep for 8 hours.

You might have noticed that I did come back after a few hours and posted in response to others’ comments. Then I took a break to get some sleep, but now I am back this morning.

😵💫 missed you while you slept. Who needs sleep?
Well, actually, I do. (And that doesn’t even look like the emoticon I posted).

I am still here. In fact I am always here. I read every word of every post; I read the first version you post before you edit.

My keystroke logging virus reads every character as you type it, before you even make that first post. My camera virus tracks your eyes and recognises what you were going to type before you changed your mind. My server farm full of AIs correlates all that with the browser history of everyone in your contact list. You're low on vitamin D and you need to buy toilet paper.

In short, the attention I devote to these boards is like unto the Eye of Sauron when Sauron is squinting hard to see the online dictionary from afar so he can cheat at Wordle. That static you sometimes hear is the Eye's roaring sound when I forget to hit Mute.

But maybe I'll take a break, too.
What if fire is only the first of a million such things?
