Dusting off the place

Hey!  Remember me?  I thought you did.  Long time no see, huh?  Yep I have neglected my Live Journal.  Shame on me! 

So it has been more than a month since you have heard from me.  So what's up with me?  Well I have gone through a time of quasi-depression.  I am still somewhat there but eventually cheering up.  Shortly after I last typed here the price of a barrel of oil went through the roof and airlines started going into bankruptcy or going toes up outright.  I had plans to finally visit Disneyland after all these years later this year for my Birthday in September.  Well the economic problems have caused me to postpone my trip indefinitely. 

If you know me well enough you realize that I have been wanting to make it out to SoCal for a very long time and having to come to the decision I did really broke my heart.  It isn't enough that it is Disneyland.  That is bad enough.  However I have a ton of friends out that way (much more than I have in my own hometown).  If it makes any sense not being able to see well enough to drive I don't get out too much.  I do get lonely.  The Internet and places like The LoT are wonderful but I've never met any of these wonderful people in person and there is a disconnect that is hard to deal with.  I want to be sympathetic when they have problems and be really excited when things are really awesome in their lives or for big events like weddings or Birthdays (well I get excited about Birthdays but it is a little hard to write a unique personal message when I haven't met you).  It's hard to do so when you are "Disconnected"  Does that make any sense?  I am pretty sure the feelings are mutual and that y'all out there feel disconnected with me because you've never met me in person either. 

Blah...confiding all that made me sad again.  But I feel that I owe you  my readers and friends an update in that department here (I've talked about it somewhat on LoT).  Well A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes and sometimes it takes a long time for that dream to come true.  I am just going to have to be patient.  It is very hard though...almost excruciating.  However I know that when I am finally able to make the trip it will be so worth it. 

Okay...on to other matters.  My show is doing quite well so far.  In four shows I have gone from recording them to doing them live through Skype.  I am also very close to actually getting paid sponsors.  I am looking forward to that especially since I will be able to pay my producer for the time he puts in to make me sound good.

Also on the radar screen is about a week and a half from now.  My Grandma (Mom's mother) has sold her house and is moving across town.  She lives in Washington State (Pasco, WA to be exact).  My mom and Dad are going out there for a few weeks to help her move.  I will be King of the Castle and I am looking forward to it.  Yay!  :) 

Well that's about all the news fit to print here.  I promise to write more often.  I'm sorry for neglecting y'all.

Brian, are you in college? Have you thought about applying to the College Program? Disney's very into diversity and may have an opportunity that would suit you and your skills.

**hugs** I agree with you about 'net contacts: useful sometimes, but definitely face-to-face is better when available.

Yay for being King of the Castle!!!!
