First off, I would like to thank everyone for the birthday wishes a few days ago. All of them are greatly appreciated, especially since I experienced personal tragedy the same day: another one of the kitties that lived with me turned gravely ill and ended up having to be put down. It hurt bad, to put it mildly, but so far I've been able to manage, no mean feat when your talking to someone who has experienced bouts of depression in the past. Nevertheless, I am grateful to my supporters and friends: You all make my life worthwhile.
And just in case you were wondering, I've been spending a lot of time in Second Life, and if you were looking for a chat in real time, that's where you'll find me most EST evenings.
