Not again!

I'm still 10 days behind, skipping about 800 entries. Con this past weekend didn't help that. Didn't turn on the computer at all. Had a good con. Had a great time with friends. Got home 9-ish, was in bed 10-ish, woke up exhausted this morning. All standard post-con.

Taking a breather at work, signed into that _other_ social networking site I've been spotted on -- the one where less in-depth commentary happens, where I can skim more, so I don't fall as far behind -- and if I do, it's hard to catch up, so I just don't...

And started seeing reference to the death of an acquaintance -- one with whom I had a good conversation, not at this most recent con, but at the one before that. He was not yet a friend, but maybe after a few more cons he would have been.

I'm shy. It's hard for me to get to know new people. Heck, it's sometimes hard for me to talk to people I know well.

I have no words. I have no energy. And dammit, I'll miss him. Farewell John.

Being completely offline for a couple of days is a good thing to do. Glad you had a good time at the con.

I remember seeing him at OVFF, I have exchanged a word or two with him, but that's about it. It's a sad thing to see people lose someone they care about.
