Answer: The urge to say.......
To say I'm in a bad mood would be like saying a tsunami is a bit of coastal flooding.
Not a lot is going my way lately. Rosa is also in a bit of a funk as well. But, what the hell? You know what they say...."it's always darkest .....just before you fall down a a flight of stairs."
A nice nymphomaniac acting on the 'fuck everything' philosophy. I'm not sure if it's working for her or not....but the guys don't seem to mind. The people fucking you never do.
If you look at the brief 'mission statement and blog rules' at the top of the page, my intention that this be a place of interaction was always clear from the start. Now I know of a couple of folks who have added or converted their existing blogs to ones with limited access. In the past I shied away from this notion, feeling that I wanted as many interesting people to be able to interact here as possible. LOL. Well a quick perusal of the input lately indicates just how successful that has been! So I'm thinking I might just try a more EXclusive rather than INclusive approach.
I'm figuring there are a pretty solid handful of people who seem interested enough to participate here and perhaps it would be better if they were considered members of a more limited club. They deserve it after all.
It seems like the blog now is like having an open bar without a guest list. Plenty of people will come in for the free drinks and only a few ever tip or get to know the bartender, while most don't even bother to say 'thanks for the drink'. So I'm thinking if I just opened the bar to a few patrons, not much would change for the bartender (me).....except that the amount of free booze consumed by anonymous party-crashers would fall to nothing. I would get the same amount of comments from the same people and perhaps even feel more free to post things I have kept private.
So I'm going to look into what is involved in making the conversion, and if it is simple enough, I will grant access to those who actually make the effort to participate and "Collected Submissions" will no longer be open to anyone else.
