I've been out of touch for a while. My last locked post was about social depression, but the last unlocked post was about slash and Brussels sprouts, so that was probably pretty confusing and misleading.

I've been composing and then composting mental journal entries for a while now because all of them degenerated into things not fit to print so I figured I wasn't ready. I still don't feel that way but am trying to get back into the swing. Brachiate. I thought I could find a way to talk about what went down but there's no good way. Estimated recovery period from ground zero, unknown. I appreciated the posts and e-mails. Thank you.

In other news, I'm not going to Escapade this year. I've been writing, slowly. I've been taping Angel but am not watching right now. It's my birthday today. I'm really, really old. Possibly ninety. Ninety years old and going about nine miles per hour. I'll be over here in the slow lane for a while.

Glad to see you're back, and hope that everything improves.

Happy Birthday, too!

You don't know me, but I want to wish you a wonderful birthday and tell you that I think you're a sublime writer. I'm sorry to hear that things haven't been going your way, but I'm thinking of you today. Thanks for all the enjoyment your writing has brought me.

I've missed you and I've been thinking about you a lot. Hang in there.

Happy Birthday! Although from the tone of things, perhaps I should be a bit more restrained about it.

I'm sorry for the state of things, I wish you nothing but strength, perserverance and some bright flash of joy to penetrate the fog.

::hugs:: Also? Good to know that you're not...ya know...dead.

I had a very long odd dream about you last night, the details of which have mostly fled; I remember that I was visiting you in a huge ramshackle house, which had a church built into part of it, and you had taken up a kind of secular quasi-nun's life. Heh.

It's so wonderful to see you brachiating your way back here that I don't know how to express it without sounding idiotic, so... Huge love to you, and happy birthday.

Anna! Been a lot of people missing you lately. ::hugs:: I'd say happy birthday but, well. I'll say it anyway.

Happy Birthday, Anna. I hope things get better very soon.

Something bad happened, didn't it? And anything I'd say would sound trite. But for what is worth, you were dearly missed. I'm glad you're back. *hugs you*

Happy Birthday.

I hope whatever went down gets solved, or resolved in some reasonable way, and that this year is immeasurably better than the last.

I usually just lurk, but I do want you to know that I've thought about emailing you a whole bunch of times -- I've missed you. (I was... um... starting to worry about you.)

Happy Birthday, Anna. I hope things start looking up for you soon.

So good to see your familiar Elijah icon. You've been missed, my dear.

And...felicitations on your birthday. I wish you many happy (happier?) returns.

I'm very glad you're back, even a little. I miss your sense and humor and genuineness when you're gone. Happy Birthday, and many good wishes.
