An Absent Blogger

Coming to my blog. Is like coming to a room that’s had the door shut for a few weeks. I was here. But I shut the door for a while. And the room cooled off. With no heat coming into it. I have been. An absent blogger.

I’ve been on vacation over at Freecyle. Cleaning the house. Putting a notice on Freecycle. And leaving the stuff on the porch. For the Freecyle recipients to pick up. Goodbye large wool woven rug. Goodbye big bag o’ dog treats. When I started, I thought I’d get stuff too. A little bit of Freecyle karma. But so far, I’ve gotten exactly nothing. So, if you’ve got a hammock stand you’re just waiting to get rid of, I’m here in the world waiting for one!

And I just met a neighbor for the first time. And said something ridiculous. Displaying the social skills of a turtle. Now I want. To go right back. Into my turtle shell.

Good read of the day: What Is the What by Dave Eggers.

It's funny, innit, that sometimes even social skills can leave us high and dry? Aaaah Life. *g*

gr - That li'l corgi has a sensitive tummy. Lots of types of dog treats result in, well, trips to the bathtub for backside washes.

I just love Freecycle. I have given many things away, and have received so far:

--2 bentwood dining chairs that just needed cleaning and re-staining

--many moving boxes

--a big bag of bubble wrap

and: a Hello Kitty toaster.

None of these things I requested, but I saw them offered and asked for them and then picked 'em up! Wooohooo!!!! Go Freecycle!
