5:36 pm - Friends only
Due to various security reasons, this journal will be friends only from this point forward.

That is all.

A lot's been happening, and of course when I finally find the time to post something here, I can't think of something to say.

Christmas came and I got sick. I did receive some nice things (though of course Ian made out better than I did), and as I may have previously mentioned, I received checks from family members I haven't spoken to in years. One of my personal favorite gifts was the Adventures of Pete & Pete Season One DVD that my sister gave me. She shares my quirky sense of humor and always seems to know just what will make me smile.

Sarah's starting crap with me and the family again. I don't feel like getting into it here; perhaps you already know the story through Leslie. Anyway, here we go again!

OK. That's all the talking from me today.

Speaking of Christmas Cards. Leslie and I got one from lisamaesie, so thanks!

Happy holidays and best wishes to everyone who reads this!

11:55 pm - Holidays
I'm not even going to get into the situation with my brother at this time since those of you closest to me probably already know the situation through Leslie anyway. Besides, that seems too much like really talking, and we can't have that here, can we?

However I thought I'd let you know how things were progressing with my dad. Things seem to be going well. There's a dialogue again and it's great... it's a real relief.

I received numerous Christmas cards this week but one of them really stood out. It was from my paternal grandmother (my dad's mother), someone else I haven't spoken too in years (because I pretty much cut ties with that entire side of the family) and it had a two page letter in it and a check for $100. ??!!

OK, let me stress that I did *not* resume speaking to my dad just because it was December and I was trying to weasel out extra Christmas gifts. In truth I did not expect this or the gift that my dad sent me. I started speaking to him again because I'm getting married in five months and we're sending out invitations soon, so it was down to the wire to decide whether I wanted to invite him. I do, and I will.

10:48 pm - Returned I have!
Yeah, you thought I was gone, didn't you? Just because I haven't updated in a few days...

I'm talking to my dad again. It's interesting catching up on events of the last few years, and weird at the same time. I've mentioned my wedding but don't know yet if he's interested in coming. We're still in the process of catching up.

I haven't told my mom about any of this yet, though it's possible she already knows (since my brother knows).

Speaking of my mom, she's informed me that she's become friends with John Mayer. Seriously. As in they correspond regularly (every couple of days, apparently) through both phone and email. A little odd, but interesting.

I'm behind on far too many things online. I want my computer back. (It's been virused and I've been using Leslie's.) That's one of the things I'm behind on, unfortunately.

This was another. But now I've posted again, and so you all get to hear from your wonderful friend (?!) for another day.

I like these big head moods. Leslie says they look just like me.

12:13 am - Panicking
Well now it's time to get serious.

I wrote my father tonight. I haven't spoken to him in nine years, but tonight I wrote him an email... I wanted to let him know I was getting married and invite him to the wedding, but after so long maybe I need to get to know him again first... maybe I need to know if he even wants that first.

I don't know which I'm more afraid of - that I won't get a reply from him, or that I will.

Need to breathe...

current mood: nervous

12:55 am - My first meme
I have been instructed to post this. If you feel like participating, reply to this anonymously and I will try to guess who you are.

1. One secret
2. One compliment.
3. One non-compliment, criticism, or insult.
4. One love note, but it does not have to be for me.
5. Lyrics to your favourite song.
6. How old you are.
7. How long we've been friends
8. And a hint to who you are.
9. After you do it for me, put it in your LJ and see who does it for you.

12:02 am - Who the Hell am I?
Two posts in one night! Can you beat that?

Actually, it occurred to me after my first post that I've added a few more names to the friends list, and I may add a few more in the next couple days, and some of you may have no idea who the hell I am. Some of you may know me as Dan, some may remember me not too long ago as Longdogger Pete, some may remember me much much longer ago as Tigs Syren. That should pretty much cover everything. These days I'm known in most circles merely as Doggah.

Fascinating stuff. Really.

11:15 pm - The Sleeper Awakens
Yeah, here I am again. We'll see if I stick around this time.

Random things are going through my head...

...less than six months remain before my wedding date. I've got to remind myself to start gathering people's addresses...

...a big hell yeah to the Red Sox' acquisition of Josh Beckett from the financially strapped Marlins...

...I wonder what happened on Survivor Series tonight?

...I find myself more and more missing certain people that I've lost touch with over the years. Wish I could bring myself to do something about that...

...my mother's birthday is today. She's recently moved out of state. I need to send her something...

...since I haven't been around to say it sooner, we'll miss you Eddie Guerrero...

All right, that's enough for one mixed bag of emotions. Perhaps I'll be seen again.

I have a couple of haikus...

This one is based on Leslie's user picture.

Hootie sold out, yo
He shills for the Tender Crisp
Bacon Cheddar Ranch


This one was done when Leslie said to me, "Write me a poem for Mother's Day!"

This is Mother's Day
I am writing a haiku
Happy Mother's Day


10 days...

Happy birthday to my sister Kim... who probably doesn't have LiveJournal. Oh well.


The countdown to May 15th is on... 12 days.

Thanks to faithrevolution (Leslie) for my new layout!

So maybe I feel inspired to write this weekend. And maybe I'll actually put together a coherent story. And maybe I can post my writings here so that I'll actually have a use for this journal.

Maybe.

Stay tuned.

Bare with me as I show a rare latent spark of creativity... okay, so it's just a silly haiku.

I've seen people using this passage to start their entries recently:

Pretend that this is your first LJ entry, and that everyone reading it has ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA who you are. Introduce yourself to the digital world.

I'd do this, but everyone reading it already has no idea who I am.

Hah. Boy, was I way off the mark!

Happy today because the Sox finally won their first game of the season. Only won one out of three against the Yankees this week but at least Mariano blew two saves, something he's seemed to develop a habit for against the Sox.
