Some have urged me to talk to my doctor and get some pills, but I have real, not imagined reasons to be depressed and unfortunately I am just going to have to live with them. Besides my doctor looked terrified when I told him last November that I had a heart attack under his watch and I don't think he could handle this situation any better.
So instead I've decided to make some changes around the place. Cleaned up the layouts, restored my blog lists, moved the FFIBS site to the new progressive blogging aggregate, and I've stepped out from the anonymity of being a fictional blogger. Hello my name is Al Hayward.
There was comfort in being an anonymous blogger or in my case two anonymous bloggers. Anonymity allowed you to post things like...
Harper a deranged fanatic, whose unrealistic view of Canadian society took root in the 70's, after a traumatic trip out west, where in a truck stop washroom, he was raped by five undercover mounties posing as hippies.and the mindless Canadians who support this asshole couldn't find you. Not that that I posted such statements as Willy and nor would I do so now, but I'm just saying that you could do that type of thing when you were anonymous.
Now as Al Hayward, I would have to get statements from one or more of the probably now high ranking mounties that the event actually happened. No it would be next to impossible to prove that Harper was butt fucked by mounties posing to be hippies in the seventies. But I do know from personal experience that there were a lot of undercover mounties pretending to be hippies in the seventies and there was definitely something in Harper's past that has caused him to have such an unrealistic view of Canadian societal values.
Other changes: I'm going commercial. You will see ads on the right hand side and other places around the blogs. Ads for things I do to make a living. I figure what the hell they are no worse than the google ads explaining how to progressively loose 20 lbs. in just three weeks, that appear in between the posts on the pages of other progressive bloggers. Hey, if you are a blogger that is into advertising revenue, I am paying a cent a hit, with some caveats.
So here goes, attempt number four to transcend the bull shit.
