Shady's err...Gilly's back. (So is his site: www.gilnoriega.com)
First off, sorry about the absence, some people were wondering if I was alive or if I got another account. Anyway, here I am, present and accounted for. Wow, lots of crap going on eh? Bombings in England, this friggin' heat, Palmeiro suspended, NASA back in space, a tenth planet, hurricanes, earthquakes, destruction. Infidelities, affairs, love and marriage, birth, death, life goes on. Tags on Livejournal, new layouts, I purchased a permanent account during the last sale. More icons, etc. Too bad I haven't used it for two months. I also bought a notebook, hoping that maybe it'd get me writing more, at least in the screenplay department. Eh, so far, no dice.
Calls from exes out of the blue. Visiting hospitals, college roommate getting engaged. Running into old friends that I never see, we're almost strangers at this point but one of them said something that made me think...

Hmmm... Some other words I've collected over the past couple of months.
You are who you are.

Damn it's been so long that I've forgotten how to use cuts and tags, heh. The fourth was interesting, police confiscating fireworks, the neighbors going off about "who" exactly is an American. I guess certain people shouldn't be lighting bottle rockets. Don't get me started. Lots of movies came out, so far the best I've seen has been Batman. Well that and Crash. Love was in the air for a while, not for yours truly, but it seemed like everywhere I turned someone was making out or holding hands. In best little kid voice: Ewwwwww. Picnics, parties, concerts, fights, and issues. A lot of crap went down, but it seemed like the more living I was doing, the less writing I did. Nothing personal, I plan on being back, hopefully on a daily basis. It's just that there seemed to be a lot of negative energy around here, the friends list will be edited soon. (don't worry I'm probably not talking about you, but in case I do make a mistake, just hit me up. That's why pencils have erasers) That and I just felt like no one was really reading, not that I need an audience, but if I'm not writing for myself then who was I writing for. I don't know, I guess there were more than a couple of reasons as to why I stopped writing, but I never did stop reading. I know what you've all been up to, you sick fucks, heh. *clears throat* Besides, I'd miss most of you too much, heh. *wipes tear* Anyway, I also revamped my website, check it out if you get the chance. Hell maybe you're here because of it, if so, sweet.
I guess that's about it for now, oh that and I was considering trying to participate in Blogathon 2005. I'd probably do it for JDRF or Misericordia. I'd choose one of those because of their links to Chicago and previous experiences with them. Who knows? I guess I'll see if I can drum up any interest but I'll have to make up my mind in the next day or so. It'll be fun staying up for 24 hours, right? Other than that, that's about it, I feel rusty, like I'm all over the place. After two months I figured I'd have tons to write about, but I guess it's business as usual.
