This Wonderful Bag of Stuff



I don’t know, I’m tired.

What's stopping you?

Quite frankly, this whole “Anonymous” thing has gotten a little old. If you’re not asking for yourself, Anon, then why are you asking? And annoyingly persistently, I might add…

And, honestly, I’m not the one suddenly flooding an inactive Tumblr Inbox with hypotheticals. If I’ve had a falling out with someone, especially from Tumblr, it’s been quite a while since and, as I’ve mentioned in one of the previous responses, a lot has gone on - especially in the last six months.

So, please, give me a break and quit whatever game this is that you are playing. If you are the person who would like to reconnect, then reveal yourself and we’ll talk like actual people; not someone answering to a faceless entity, because that gets a little old very quick, especially in these circumstances.

And if you have no intention of coming out of the proverbial shadows, please be kind and stop wasting both of our times. There’s only so far I can take this cutesy “mystery”, and we’ve reached the end of the line.

Hopefully your next message, if there is a next message, will have an actual face to it. If not, I’m going to have to turn off the “Anonymous message” function. Thanks.

Geoff, the gents. The loos, now, please.
It’s Greg. Why?
Oh, I don’t know. Maybe it’s your turn.

Is there someone you want to reconnect with?

There are plenty of people with whom I would like to reconnect, Anon.

I’m not going to give a list, but believe me when I say that there are.

Who was the last person you had a "falling out" with on tumblr? Would you talk to them again?

At the risk of potentially screwing up a possible re-connection opportunity, I’m going to answer the important question first; which, of course, is the second question.

Of course I would talk to whomever it was I’d last had a “falling out”. In fact, even if that person wasn’t the specified “last person”, I’d still give talking to them a chance.

Now, unfortunately, I don’t remember enough to properly answer the first question - it’s been one helluva six-month period for me, to say the least - but that doesn’t mean that anyone with whom I’ve experienced a “falling out” doesn’t matter to me anymore. It just doesn’t work like that.

Dear Anon, I have the feeling that you might be someone with whom I’ve had such a “falling out”. If that’s the case, feel free to message me as you. Not obligatory, but I promise: I will not bite. And if that’s not something you’re comfortable with at the moment (sending me a you-message, I mean; not the lack of biting) that’s up to you.

I only say this because the last few Anon messages I’ve received have had this kind of subject wrapped around them. I’m not going to leave that unacknowledged. So, yes, I’d talk to anyone with whom I’ve had a falling out.
