  •  I am impatient (6+ / 0-)

    but I'm also feeling very time pressured in that I'm soon going to be evicted and probably will not be able to continue doing this in any way, shape or form.
    I've already lost 'net access except via the public library.

    No employment on the horizon and no supports anywhere else.  

    So I apologize when I seem abrupt - I'm sure I am.  But that's the source of the impatience, and it's not meant to be directed at readers in any way. It's definitely not for seeking mojo or praise.

    •  i sense no abruptness (4+ / 0-)

      this is just one of the unfortunate aspects of dkos --- there are some people who will always hit the rec list and garner lots of commenters, etc.

      and, for the most part, i think those people should be on the rec list

      but there's many others who should be up there, as well. there's a ton of good stuff on dkos, most on significant topics with a sprinkling of awesome snark (see Arken's diary this morning as an example of awesome snark which fell right off the page)

      you just can't let it discourage you, even if your life situation is desperate.

      i'm sorry about the impending eviction, btw. makes me very thankful i own my place lock stock and barrel. it's tremendous peace of mind and i feel profound gratitude for it every day.
