Well, slap me sideways and call me a saloon door…!!!

What a time we’re having hereabouts… heat indexes still boiling the thermometers, pollen counts in the millions of parts per million, I think the sun is actually orbiting closer to Illinois than to Mercury at the moment…!!! Seriously, I saw a lady walking her pet Dachsund the other day and I swear the little woofer had griddle marks on him…!!!

Hey, “What’s the weather like on your planet?”


Yeah, oh, speaking of questions, has anybody been playing with those funny little, “Add an answer” things on Facebook? Really, it can be quite amusing… just take a serious question and think up a completely smartarse answer…

Example, I came across the question the other night, “How do like your spaghetti?”… oh, what an opening…

Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahahahaha… I am so gonna use that next time…

Know what? I’ve been thinking, just recently, about “constancy” “- the quality of staying the same, not getting less or more”[1] and “inconstancy” “- not staying the same, especially in emotion, behaviour, or choice of sexual partner”[2]

Yeah, yeah, okay…enough with the sex jokes already… seriously now…

Having spent almost 18 years online, in this wonderful little alternative reality we have called the VC, I have seen an amazing amount of changes… not so much wholesale, widespread, cultural changes but smaller, somewhat radical and fleeting changes. One of the most prevalent types of change that I recall is level of inconstancy of a good many folk. It seems that from initial identification as one form of “kin”, for wont of a better term, there is a decided shift that comes along at not too infrequent intervals where people will re-imagine, reinvent or re-define themselves and I have to ask myself why.

Is it because they have an epiphany? A blinding revelation accompanied by the choral strains of an assemblage of winged daemons telling them that they’re not what they thought they were?

Is it because, eventually, people get bored with their “persona”, get bored with waning visibility, get bored with having to think themselves restricted in topics of discussion (if they care about that sort of thing of course) Is it a need to become “visible” again, to become “noticed”, to become part of the “in crowd” again?

Is that why we seem to be constantly discovering new types of Vampires in our midst? Is it simple inconstancy that afflicts?

Yeah, food for thought I thought…
