I'm Baaaack

At least in theory.

I've decided to give this whole blog thing another shot. I'm feeling refreshed and relaxed about it, so I decided it was time to come back.

Now, you may be wondering what brought this decision on.

Was it the many e-mails telling me that I suck?

In a word, no.

Was it the few donations that people sent me trying to push me back to writing?

No. Those were really nice (even the one that told me to get off my ass), but the money didn't really sway me.

Okay... Not that much.

What brought me back was a nice e-mail I got from a woman who liked the blog. She said some very nice things about the blogs and how much she liked them.

But she didn't tell me to come back. She didn't even ask.

Instead, she just sent some kind wishes and left it at that.

The fact that there are still people worth writing for (and yes, you are many) is what brought me back.

Am I going to be writing every day?

Oh hell no.

I must admit that the time off let me look back over the blog and I realized that the more I tried, the less funny it was. It was the times when I was relaxed and just writing the crazy stuff that popped into my head or happened to me that day, that I really loved.

So, I'm going to write a few times a week. Maybe more depending on what my weekends are like.

But, for all intents and purposes, I am back. For good.

Run and hide, bitches. Run and hide.

_ _ _ _ _ _

A few additional notes:

1) No, I'm not dead.

Apparently, someone started a rumor that I died over Christmas. That was just plain stupid.

First off, I cannot be killed. I mean, duh.

Second, do you really think Susan would post it in the freakin' comments section?

2) The OC got cancelled.

And the world rejoiced.

3) Susan

Susan is doing fine. The baby is (as far as I know) doing well.

There will be a few stories about that very soon.

_ _ _ _ _ _

Anyway, go back to work. I'll talk to you tomorrow.

SCREW THE VIRGINS!

Bow chicka bow wow...

Good to see your back, the comments on the last post should provide at least 3 months worth of material for you to practise on.

I will remember to email you should you ever go that long without at least a "SHUT UP! I'M ALIVE I JUST HATE YOU ALL!"...

Glad to have you back refreshed and renewed Dave.

I hope that you enjoyed the chaos that your absence has wrought.

I'm certain that the erroneous reports of your death will be met with tolerance and forgiveness... or at least a painless demise.

Or not.

Good to see you back Dave, you're truly welcomed : )

 
At 9:01 AM, Blogger Zenomorph said...

I'm thankful you're back and well Dave.

I've missed you and your stories terribly. May I ask, is there a due date for your little boy or girl?

You have no idea how many lives you touched and made better, some people just aren't the best at expressing it.

"Enjoy" work,
Ze

The clouds open up, the sun shines down on a lone figure in red. His weapons glow with a meanacing bloody aura. On this warriors back resides The Weapon of Doom: The Ban Stick+1. The ground trembles as behind this being of awesomness a large beast out of nitemares approaches. All seems to be lost for the Hero as the beast rears up as if to strick down upon him with great anger. Instead the beast rolls over onto it's back and waits for a tummy rub.

[GM]Dave rubs Jormy's tummy.

The Fearsome Ones have returned. All flee before the mighty onslaught of mass feedings and Deluxe Ban Packaging.

Welcome back [GM]Dave.

Yeah!! Knowing [GM]Dave is on a roll again make the 8 hrs a day I can't play FFXI due to this "Work" thing i am forced to do.

Botter, Gillsellers & Tards Beware!!!

Welcome back, Dave. You were missed. ^^ I look forward to your posts, as a little escape from my own reality. =)

Good wishes to Susan and Susans little one. I guess good wishes to you, as well. ~.^

Err... I believe the correct response is

"Awww hell yes"

 
At 3:25 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Welcome back.
Now I can go from checking your blog in a hopeless and listless way, to checking your blog with a real spark of possibility. That'll make the swell of disappointment when I find no new post that much stronger.... well done!

It's always funny [GM]Dave. Well atleast I find your stories histerical and an intriguing read. We're just glad you're back and will bring a roaring story of the tards botters sellers and Jormy back. This is why no one messes with Jormy ever is because we know you will feed us to him.

Personally, I thought it would have been a fitting end if Dave did end up dead (Although by brain aneurysm would make more sense)

 
At 5:35 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

How dare you say that blasphemy. GM Dave can never and will never die. Ever. Never Ever. And welcome back.

I hope you'll enjoy writing your new stories as much as we'll enjoy hearing them :)
My best regards to you, Susan and the lil one.

"Am I going to be writing every day?

Oh hell no."

Long time listener, or reader in this case. Welcome back. I enjoy reading these in my downtime at work... /grin

 
At 11:53 AM, Blogger fadedrights said...

[GM]Dave! Welcome back! My work days have been utterly dark without your colorful stories of stupid people trying to propagate their idiocy! Glad to see you're back, hope all is well. Looking forward to your next post!

 
At 12:13 PM, Blogger Elvean said...

Happy to have you here again Dave!


Translation: I got too much Burning Crusade to play.
and this made me laugh and wonder.. got Susan hooked at her first try some time ago, like I did at mine??
Who is going to change the baby's diapers when both of you are hooked?? lol

Welcome back. I would say good luck with coming up with new content but with your talent I don't think you'll need it, especially now that you aren't trying to kill yourself with everyday stories.

 
At 1:53 PM, Blogger paduse said...

Phew! And I thought you were out of material... Welcome back.

 
At 4:10 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

hooray! glad you're back. I can't believe I signed up for a blog in order to comment. As if I have anything to say that can compare to your rants.

 
At 7:06 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

and the people rejoiced..

I am going to start watching my mouth on ffxi again. No more tom foolery...the [bastard sword] is back.

Though i find it suspicious that my grumpy ass guild mate is missing from WoW. He had a nasty mouth and low tolerance for fools though us grrls thought him sexy as hell for some reason. The boys are happy he has vanished. I will always wonder.....

/em sighs all dreamy like

 
At 10:09 PM, Blogger Arkaine said...

And the retards that had claimed the intarweb in [GM]Dave's absence now have something to genuinely fear.

He will save us all from the infestation.

Cleanse this scum - let the streets run green with the blood of our enemies!

For the [GM] has returned! >:D

SLAY THEM ALL!!!!!

YAY!! id almost given up hope on checking for new blog posts. but im glad to have ya back dave. i missed laughing so hard my sides hurt at 9 pm.

 
At 10:04 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Welcome back Dave. I guess we all need a break sometimes when we are doing alot of something, even FF lol. Though the only time I took a break was due to damn college work, ah well.

The rumor of your death was suspicious and I guess we were right to suspect something wasn't right about that. Besides I don't think corpses can type, unless you did die and developed some new ability o.O lol.

Anyways, look forward to reading some of your new material. Later Dave.

At 1:56 AM, Blogger Shinkada said...

It's good to see you back, Dave. I would've given you some inspiring e-mail, but I can't find your e-mail address. That and I'm sure you don't read the comments.

I agree though; occasionally your posts can be a bit forced, but there's always one every so often that really makes me laugh that I can tell you've just -written-. It's better to write when you feel like it rather than on some set schedule, so I'm sure the blog will only get better from here!

That and, hey, I know you'll have something degrading to say about Burning Crusade, because I know -I'M- sick of hearing about evil, Blood Elf Paladins.

 
At 3:04 AM, Blogger The Answer said...

welcome back, GM Dave. I have quit FFXI for a month now, but I'll be sure to be reading your blog.

 
At 1:16 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Great to see your back, your blog was so inspiring that all my friends started reading and some (including me) brought FFXI. Being in england we have to wait for FFXII though.

 
At 3:31 PM, Blogger shingui of cerberus said...

wow first time checking blog in afew weeks and your back yey!

I know how hard it is to write stories if there preasure. Just write when you want to and it should be ok.

Wow, sweet!!! I thought you may be gone for good, but I pulled up your page today to link to a friend, and saw new posts and almost shit myself!!

Thanks [GM]Dave!

 
At 6:26 PM, Blogger semele said...

Aw, nice to have you back. I hope it was one of my posts that brought you back.

I refer to my boss as JF: Jormy Food. Every day I fantacize about a huge dragon suddenly appearing in her oversized office and, just as suddenly as she is shocked by the site of it, she is a tasty morsel. Okay, it crosses my mind more than once a day.
