Just a public service reminder to any and all folks on my "friends of" list. Feel free to delete me at any time if I happen to make statements that offend or you deem inappropriate. Of course you could also just leave a comment if you wish. I guess I'm reaching a point called "furry fandom fatigue." Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere soon, but I've reached the saturation point of bullshit. The fandom is a sort of a strange hybrid somewhere between friends and family. In typing up my FC con report I realized just how many friends I have out there and I am extremely grateful for them. The community is so intertwined that we are all like an extended family. That's one of the great things about the fandom. When I came upon the scene a few years ago, I knew no one. I never thought I would have the circle of friends that I do now. Back in my early day I would run up to everyone (in cyberspace) like a cub and glomp on to them going, "Friend!" The other beauty of the fandom was that it didn't matter if you were gay, straight, male, female, black, white, etc. We were all furs! Well, as time has gone on, my patience has started to wane with a lot of the furs with no social graces or no desire to make something of their life. I'm at a very comfortable spot right now. I will continue to make new friends as cool new people discover the fandom. At the same time I am very willing to let some old friends fade by the roadside. If you don't like a sometimes gruff and grumpy bear, hit the delete button and be gone. You always get the real me whenever you talk/chat to me. I'm 100% open and honest. You'll just have to deal with it. If you don't want to, don't let the door hit you in the tail on your way out. If you want to stay and hang around, we'll hopefully have a fun ride together.
