I've Always Liked YouHave I mentioned lately how much I appreciate you, my readers?
I should mention that more often.
Without you, this whole blog wouldn't be worthwhile. It is you guys that make every word worth writing.
It is you that keeps my ever flickering faith in humanity alive.
Barely, but still.
Given the abuse that faith takes in the run of a general day, the fact I have even the barest sliver at all is incredible.
I have you to thank for that.
I want you to always know how appreciated you are. I consider you all my very good friends.
I know, I know. I'm getting all mushy.
Maybe we should talk about something completely unrelated.
Hey, did you hear that SE is running a customer service survey about GMs?
Oh... That stuff about us being friends?
Yeah, that was totally from the bottom of my heart.
I'm just making small talk about the customer service survey.
I really wouldn't want to influence your responses.
No, sir. Not me.
I want you to be completely honest. At no time should you be concerned that I could trace your IP address and enact a terrible vengeance upon you.
Try not to even think about it.
I mean, I could do that.
It's not even that hard.
But don't let that affect your decisions.
It'd scare the friggin' shit out of me, but just put it out of your mind.
You don't think I'd take out some obscene revenge on you, do you?
We're friends, right?
I wouldn't send an incendiary device to a friend.
Of course, friends don't talk shit about friends on quality assurance surveys either.
I'm just saying.
