Hardest thread I ever wrote. Man-o-man.

This is not a flounce by any definition of the term, but it is a good-night-and-good-luck thread. It's me signing off.

I've puttered around AW for a long time now, and I've done what I can, where I can, for whom I can. I like to think that somewhere in there I've maybe done some good. That's not for me to say.

I'm done now, though. For many reasons, none of which I will go into here. Some of them are my own, many of them are not polite reasons to bring in public, and so I won't do so.

A post like this is, of course, melodramatic by its nature, which grates on my nerves. It has a purpose, though. I've made good friends and met good people here, over the years, and I appreciate all of them.

So, this is me, saying: I'm still here, I will still talk, I am still around.

I post frequently and respond on my blog, CarrPeeDiem (http://www.carrpeediem.wordpress.com)

And I also read and answer my e-mails as quickly as I can. My address is p.tzinski(at)gmail.com


And that's it. That's all I've got.

Good night, folks.

Yikes! Pete, I will miss you much - brother. I don't know what caused this sudden departure, but I do wish you the best in your future family, work, and writing life. You are one heck of a nice guy, and damn smart for a kid. I'll miss you around here so I'll just have to tag along on your blog and keep up with things.

Be safe,

Stared at your post for a full ten minutes trying to figure out how to reply.

It is things here. And it is things elsewhere. But it is not necessarily, entirely, a specific thing, or thread, which I could comfortably point you toward.

I am a deeply uncomfortable and unnatural shit-stirrer. So I just won't.

I love you guys. And I even love some of you platonically. :D

(No, brokenfingers, I learned more about sheep from those pictures than any health class. I'm keeping 'em.)

But PeeDee if you go, who will I call "cupcake"? This really makes me sad. :( You are one of the best things about AW. Your posts are articulate and educative. When you are up to it, you bring humour to our day and help us forget that life can be so hard.

For my part, I will miss you but always count you amongst my friends so I am going to have to bookmark your blog to find you there.

Honestly, if it wasn't for you and your kindness, I wouldn't have been so inclined to stay when I first joined. You are such a fabulous person and I hope you will help us, help you, help us work through what ever it is.

Your friendship means a lot.

Was it my fault? Is it because I thought it was Carrie who had your baby? Did your wife get mad?

Seriously, one of the reasons I joined this group was because of your quietly humorous comments and cute Calvin avatars. You seemed so wise beyond your years, and I took a lot of your advice to heart, not to mention a few chuckles along the way. I'll check out your blog from time to time, and I hope you'll find the time to check in here once in a while.

The Problem With Talking to Reasonable People by Pete Tzinski

Harrumph.

I have spent all my morning and now two hours of my afternoon fielding e-mails and PMs from wonderful people with lots of things to say, at length. Which is nice, because it means you wuv me, you weawwy wuv me, but there goes my writing day. I hope you're all pleased! Sob.

The problem with talking to reasonable people (Hello, OFG, Kimmi, Mac) is that I wind up coming around reasonably too. So after a whole entire morning of bitching and moaning behind the scenes --

(and drinking so much tea that frankly I should just save water and eat a bowl of Earl Gray)

-- I am, apparently staying.

...

No, I won't tell you what happened to get me to stay.

No, I won't share.

So. This concludes this All-About-Me-Thread, thank you so much. It may now sink into oblivion with everyone else's fake/temporary flounce threads. Ner ner.

...

(Not that I minded the stunning increase in blog visits, especially since it meant everyone has the new address, feel free to keep visiting as if you were never going to see me again, kthxbai)

PeeDee

It was a great idea at the time. Posting one of these threads is MORE like having someone turn up at your funeral to talk you outta being dead, and then they succeed, and then you have to sit up, cough, and go "Um. Hey, guys. Feel great! How's it, um, going?"

Lock thread!

1) I've impaled Haggis lengthwise with a metal pole--that should make a fine spit. Watch for him in the mail, PeeDee.

2) I can't believe people think that making PeeDee a mod was a reward. What the hell is wrong with all of you?

3) My undies are riding up in the crotch.

2) we're easily amused and been here too long

Seriously -- we've recently had a number of long-term mods taking jobs or having children or writing books or otherwise pursuing meatspace sorts of things, that take them away from the board.

Meanwhile, we've been in another of those huge growth spurts where we aquire over a thousand new members (and that's not counting spammers) in under a month.

We've been feeling the pinch.

Also, you people continually underestimate the depths of my depravity.

Dazed. Confused. (Yeah, yeah, natural state of being.)

The nice thing about coming onto a thread like this dead last is that you get the full story before you have to post and sound all pathetic and maudlin.

So, Pete, glad you're staying. Glad you're a mod.

And RT's a mod, too? And Haggis?

Ummm...wow...I think I need a couple of beers to take this all in...

I'm out of it for a little bit and everyone gets delusions of grandeur...

Wow. It's all over. And I missed it. Kinda like watching the midnight news. (Pete, I'm glad you're not leaving, but I'm a little late to be getting all sentimental about it. ;))

As a public service to those who don't want to have to read 5 pages to see what happened:

Pete flounced (said he didn't), giving no reason.
Left a link to his blog for us to remember him by.
Sentimentality and bewilderment ensued.
A few nodded with empathy, alluding to answers that might be on his blog
Pete's blog got lots of hits. (There were no answers - I checked.)
Mac and others PMd him and talked some sense into him, plus made him a mod.
Pete unflounced
Gladness ensued.
People started noticing that Rllgthndr is a mod (and he never even flounced!)
Hilarity ensued
Then they noticed Haggis suddenly is a mod too
Lots of threats of flouncing ensued
Stragglers came along wondering WTH?

Hope that helps! :D

I got asked to be a mod yesterday. Not here. On another writing board. I said no. No one flounced, told me they loved me, or said they hated me (probably because no one knew about it there).

Meanwhile I'm missing all this.
