Happy Annifursary!

I just realized that I am now entering my 11th year of what I consider my "official" time in the fandom. I think it was November 18, 2002 that I posted my "furvey" on alt.lifestyle.furry. where I declared to the world (or at least the community) that I was a fur. What a long, strange trip it's been! Who knew that such a thing as liking animal-people could so profoundly change a person. Oh how I worried that I would be shunned and ostracized for being a freak. Over time the confidence grew so that I was proud to let my freak flag fly.

Last night I started to analyze the phrase "Why don't you grow up?" What exactly did that mean. What does "growing up" mean? Did it mean you get a job, a mortgage, and a family? Yeah. I got those. But I still love running around in a bear suit. So I'm still not a grown up? Does being a grown up mean that you purge yourself of fantasy and imagination? If that's what growing up means, then as Tom Waits says, I don't wanna grow up. Seriously! If growing up means fitting into the mold of "normalcy" then I shall loudly proclaim, "FUCK THAT SHIT!" Sure there is a time to be serious and take care of all of life's problems. But when that time is over, I shall let my fur down and play in my own little world.
