Textual Static

The Black PageJust a bit of a heads up that it might be a short while before things get back to normal around here. My grandmother passed away, and it’s hitting me in waves. I don’t know that I’m in a position to elaborate quite yet. I’ll need some time.

But I do want to share my appreciation for everyone out there. It’s always hard when somebody you care about — and who cared about you — isn’t there anymore. But it makes it a bit easier to know that there are others — great friends, great readers, great coworkers, a great significant other — that are there for you.

A loss is always a loss. And while I have more to say, I won’t be saying it now.

Just take a moment (you can afford to) and let somebody know you love them.

  1. Dude, I’m sorry. Losing people who you’re close to sucks a lot. Take all the time you need. I don’t think any of us are so desperate to get more ALF that we can’t begrudge you a breather.

  2. Life comes first, Mr Reed. Even if I didn’t care (which I do) I’d want you at “peak snark” for the run to the end of Season 3 anyway.

  3. So sorry to hear about your grandma, Phil. That sucks. Don’t forget to stay on top of the basics–eating and sleeping enough, etc.–because otherwise it’s just worse.

    Your ALFaholics are grateful for all the entertainment through the years and can wait for as long as you need. Cheers to your grandma–may she rest in peace.

  4. I’m sorry to hear that. Take care of yourself and take the time you need. Real life has, of course, priority.
