    Except not really.

    I think it would make one hell of a song title though, don't you think.

    To all the people who avidly follow my exploits (about six people in total, I think), I must announce that I am suffering another one of those bouts of internet fatigue.

    You know what I'm talking about. Never actually talking face to face, missing the nuances of expression and just listening to a voice.

    This is probably something I've brought on myself, too much time on message boards and on IM, I think it can do strange things to you.

    Yes, IM can be a wonderful way of staying in touch with people, and I've had some fun conversation through that medium, but sometimes it's good to hear a voice or meet someone in person. The lack of that immediacy has worn on me quite a bit in the last month or so. I'm starting to feel like I'm not a real person (a sudden and quite worrying thought that came to me there - how odd).

    The upshot of this is that I'll be going quiet for while. Dunno how long this will be. Could be a day, could be a week or it could be a month. I just don't know. I'll still be updating my MySpace and may even blurt things onto Twitter. I think I need time away from the internet to do other things, like write, read and interact in more than an electronic way.
