I didn’t get to come on during Sunday and Monday (August 19th and 20th), because on Sunday I had a holiday and visited quite a few people, and then had visitors myself. I didn’t get a single MINUTE to myself that day! And then the festivities carried themselves on to Monday, where I had guests come over, and then I was whisked off to a relative’s house. I was devastatingly bored there, too. I had literally *no one* to talk to. And I couldn’t help but miss IRC more then. If I was on IRC, I wouldn’t be bored! I’d be surrounded by tons of people to talk to. The people I see on IRC are easier to talk to for me than some of my cousins, including the cousins I happened to visit on Monday.
Also there’s the whole missing-big-things-that-happened-while-you-were-gone thing. When I finally came on Tuesday evening (August 21st), I discovered I had quite some catching up to do! For instance, Allyson Celestra (Aly on IRC) came to me saying this in a p2p**, barely minutes after I came on:
“OMG HERMS I WANTED TO TELL YOU LOTS OF THINGS ABOUT MY FIRST DAY OF HIGH SCHOOL AND PEOPLE AND STUFF BUT YOU WEREN'T ON SO I WAS LIKE FJKDSFJLDSJFLSDFJ”, said Aly.
