Turn Around...

Something with Darkside reset itself sometime around my birthday, or a bit before. (Oh, my, do you remember the thing with the squirtgun on the last day of school with Darkside's predecessor? Betcha that's the turning point, the save point, the reset point.) Something with Fuzzy reset itself as of now.

Well, as of earlier, sometime yesterday. Happy Birthday, Fuzzy Modem. I'm glad you survived to 25 years old.

What's going to reset itself next? If patterns follow, it'll be BJ, then River, then BJ again, and something odd with Darkside will happen in the middle of that, and then digitalambience and Mr. Shallow. And Sis'll show up there, and Yakky, and then things with Mr. Shallow and Darkside will get severely weird, and then sithjawa will have astute commentary on the proceedings, just before figment0 comes on the scene. And then something even weirder, probably.

Life does this to me, and my only defence is to catch the patterns beforehand so they don't scare me as much. Even if it doesn't wind up happening that way, at least I'm prepared for weird shit to follow.

My life is weird shit. And that's normal.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
