Back from the dance

And yeah, my emo departure was an April Fools joke. I felt like an asshole when graye wrote the sweetest heartfelt sentiments. jenniever and runstaverun backed up the ruse, as did mrfantasy later on in the day. runstaverun came up with the idea of deleting my journal temporarily, which was the icing on the cake. hiphopatcong deleted his own journal as a sign of solidarity, and _yggdrasil tonight said that she would have expressed something but she thought it was a joke. Well, it was. Me, give up Livejournal? Hell, I got a good number of the people on my friends list to JOIN Livejournal. Hate the drama? Hah, I read LJ Drama regularly. Feel that no one pays attention? Hell no. It was a joke. I don't hate this place, I'm not sick of it, and I love you all. Really. So thanks for those who asked me to stay, sorry for playing Tiddly Winks with your hearts.

Will post more about the dance tomorrow. Must pass out now.

Feeling: content content

I half-thought it was a joke, but figured it was best to play it safe and trot out the sappiness, just in case

After all, if I had just said "this is an april fool's joke, you fcucker!" and then it WASN'T....well, that would have meant a missed opportunity

btw, I did mean what I said, though

And I was serious about being touched and remembering your speach about people and knowing how to work a paddleboat or some shit. Seriously.

When I read your reply, I felt like an ass. Those were some great heartfelt words, killer.

Damn, already have photos posted and everything, man. You're quick! And y'know, regarding April Fools, I was really looking forward in a vain, hopeless kind've way to take over your role in the mass linkage department.

I couldn't see you leaving livejournal. You're as hooked on it as us other lj junkies. I'd suggest an lj community support group for folks like us, but as it'd be a support group funded by livejournal, it'd pretty much defeat the purpose.

Once the under the weather jenniever started to nod off, I yanked the photos off her camera and whipped together the page and thumbnails in record time.

And yeah, you're totally worthy of the mass linkage throne. I've admired your efforts, young padawan.

I was jonsing the whole time my journal was deleted. Trying to go to my friends page over and over in vain. Aaah, what pain that was!

Yeah, I tried to make my rationale at least believable.

oh russ, you silly man. i knew it couldn't be true.. and if it was i knew you wouldn't be gone for long. i said "the man has a livejournal t-shirt for crying out loud!" so i'm guessing you weren't at game night tonight. neither was i. i didn't get the directions and that's why i actually called you. i called to find out how to get there. so if you see a strange number on your cell phone it's probably me. nice pic-a-tures.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 4th, 2004 09:43 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Yeah, I told kikibird and runstaverun that I'd be off at the dance. Next week should be a go, though!
kikibird From: kikibird Date: April 3rd, 2004 04:44 am (UTC) (Hard link)
I actually turned on the computer with the purpose of finding April fools. Your post was the first one I saw.
So are you going to pay to get hiphopatcong's journal back for him again?
From: hiphopatcong Date: April 3rd, 2004 11:18 am (UTC) (Hard link)
Only have to pay to change the name- and last I checked I'm still a Nut.

Yeah, part of me felt nervous, and I did make a backup first just in case.

hehe. I thought it was a joke. I mean, who would spend money to get a permanent account and then delete it?

Well, I hope you had fun at the dance while it lasted. I did.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 4th, 2004 09:50 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
People do foolish things all the time. Hell, I've heard of people trading in Xboxes!

The dance was fun, I just was pissed that they only had one slow dance before pulling the plug.

Hey, man, I started off thinking it was a joke... and I was about to retire kingforks but was giving you a week just to make sure.

Well, hey, glad you're still here!
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 4th, 2004 09:52 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Heheheh. I was keeping an eye on kingforks and kingfox_lite during my undead period, actually.

kingforks got referenced the other day.

Haha! I admit it, I was fished in. Our mutual friend A. told me she thought it was probably a prank, but I was all "No, no, he sounded really serious!" :)

He *always* sounds serious

What the fuck are you two standing in front of? Where was this dance?
jenniever From: jenniever Date: April 3rd, 2004 12:36 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Liberty Science Center

We did the Touch Tunnell! And made rivers through sand! And used wind to hold a beach ball in the air! And looked at cockroaches! And learned about Fire safety!

oh yeah, we danced for a few minutes, too.

you know what made it believable? the part about you being upset that no one clicks on your links. you actually made me feel bad for never clicking your links.
how dare you!

For the record, if you read my reply to your departure post here http://www.livejournal.com/users/kingfox/145051.html?thread=815515#t815515

You will note that the first letter of every sentence spells "April Fools". Which is why it was worded so awkwardly.

kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 5th, 2004 03:04 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

You rock so damn hard!

I didn't even notice. You're brilliant. I commend you, herr shmivejournal!

You're so precious.
