Departure From Forum+ Shaking Up The Mainseam, here in Scottsdale Az (2 parts)..

Part 1- Leaving for a while folks.
Call it a self imposed sabbatical/exile/ leave of absence or what ever, but I've been spending way TOO MUCH time here.

My little ones look at me disappointedly while I am surfing the forums, this makes me sad.

My apt is a mess.
My waist line is expanding.
(notsexy)
Hence the decision.

I will refer all my affairs or concerns to Mr Deep as I ve desiginated him w/Power Of Attorney in my absence..

Part2-

HOW I SHOOK UP THE MAINSTREAM HERE LOCALLY-
DiamondKaraeokeStyle.

As alot of you know I live in the city of Scottsdale Az.
I like to sing karaeoke.
So recently I am at this posh club in the city.
Gathered in this club are-
fatcats,movers,shakers,phony people, people w/too much make up,implants,toupeas-you get the idea.
Median age approx 52 yrs of age.
Too much cigar smoke and lousy choice in songs.
Oh dear.
So I devise a plan.
Theyre singing the shittest music, we're talking Perry Como and Air Supply

Its ok. I kick my plan into gear.
Im up next.

I choose to sing Cat Stevens-"Morning Has Broken"
I recieve favorable applause. Im starting to pretend to fit into their clique.

Another round of fatcats sing idiotic songs by Rick Sprinfield and Barry Manilow.

Im up next.
I sing-"Acqalung" by Jethro Tull.
I scream out the lyrics-
"SNOT IS RUNNING DOWN HIS NOSE,HEEEY ACQALUNG!
FEELING LIKE A DEAD DUCK..
HEEEY ACQALUNG!"
Iam singing LOUD and LARGE
Cigars are dropping,mouths are falling ,drinks are being bobbled and wigs are now being adjusted.
There is a stunned silence at the end.
Suddenly 25 per cent of the younger part of the crowd starts applauding and then the old folks kick in.
Mission completed.
"F*CKING UP THE MAINSTREAM" as Bono likes to put it.

My advice-
Live your life large
Live your life outloud.
Do something.
Make a differnce
and
realize there is more to life than:
Interference.Com
Love Your Friend
Diamond
Peace
Out.

My recent 40 days of Lent departure from interference was tough at first but great overall. I read a novel (first one in a long time), caught up with old friends I hadn't spoken to in a while, cleared out some paper piles that had grown into mountains and most importantly didn't once hear my son say "not that U2 thing again?".

Enjoy your sabbatical!

alright.

but what i dont get is when people say theyre going away they have to make a thread about it.

but good luck regardless. if you can make it for a while, dont come back if you dont feel an urge. i know i would if i could.

Deathbear,

Itís a courtesy. After awhile people start to post threads: Where is so and so?
Iíve seen a few of those threads in the short time I have been here.
Also, it will save me from having to respond to emails?

Geezus.. I had to squint my eyes and change my underwear to make sure I read that correctly.. I just usually check this place when I'm checking Email, but 'D@MN', I guess people live here.. How much does the Rent Cost?.. I guess I wouldn't be hard pressed to ask how many relationships have broken up due to Cyber-Love relationships with this blue and purple Message Board.. BBS as I guess it's referred to.
