Fatcrazylady, badgergirl, doc, and my sweet dave, my apologies for not answering you sooner.
I’ve had tons of fun with this journal. All of the people who’ve supported me or just had fun with me have made this a venture that was so well worth while. I have so much affection for so many of you.
At its most popular, I amazingly saw 250-400 page views in a day for my silly little rantings. Sadly, I no longer support this board nor this community enough to want to bring that to the party.
It might seem that it was a poster or posters that made me make this decision, but it really wasn’t. Even the posters that I find most repulsive couldn’t have made me delete the journal. But a community that finds tattling/squealing/ratting to be positive attributes is one I no longer care much about.
Many years ago, I had a friend who used to occasionally exclaim, “Mediocrity prevails!” and then she would spit on the ground. Those are my feelings now, and it has little to do with the posters here and more to do with the juvenile expectations of the powers that be. (Because an asterisk where the i in Bitchapalooza used to be really makes a difference to anyone with more intelligence than a houseplant.)
I’ve deleted all my original posts (but not my contributions to the conversations), even though deleting a few of them almost broke my heart. I’ll remain on MDA until some seven year old waves his little hand and gets me booted off. But those journal posts are mine, so they are gone.
If there is anything that puts forth who I am, it might be this:
Squishy hugs and kisses to the regulars and irregulars who joined me here. From beef tongue to rantings on politics to just shootin’ the s***, it’s been a blast.
