A Note of Thanks for the Org



I wanted to say that this crazy fansite has been a blessing for me, personally, as I know it has been for many others.

According to the homepage, I have been a registered user for 13 years 8 months 2 days.

Many of you know that I went through a pretty harsh period with my Separation & such, beginning the Holiday season of 2010. My 40th birthday that year was definitely a highlight in my life - I had such a great time surrounded by family & friends. Then, about a month later, my world pretty much fell apart and I would say that was the lowest point of my adult life to date.

I had been increasingly posting on the Org until then (for much of the time prior I mainly lurked and posted pics of my kids). So when I opened up to the world, I opened up to the Org. I shared my struggles and pain with you all, sometimes just by venting and often posting threads that today make me shake my head in disbelief.

Well, surprisingly, I made friends. Real friends. Friends that I email, friends that I speak to, friends that I go to concerts with, friends that I travel around the world to meet...a few as recently as last month.

Today I turn 45, and my life is dramatically different than 5 years ago. Out of the houseful of people who cheered me on that day, a mere handful remain in my life. But thankfully I have a new circle of friends who have filled the void, many of which come from this crazy fansite.

And 5 years after that very momentous birthday celebration...as I prepared to spend a quiet day at home with my kids and my parents, I received a present in the mail from a group of Orgers.



touched


A special Thank-you to those who were a part of it. This arrived at my door at the perfect time...to cheer me up when I was feeling down for nonsense I'm dealing with. I am truly grateful for this gesture. Thank You x 1,000,000 !

Thank you as well to the Orger who sent me a card. tonk

I am also very thankful for ALL of you on the Org... for your crazy threads, for your your crazy comments, for the photowhores, for the photoshops, and for the shared appreciation for that skinny MF'er with the high voice that brought us all together.

You do realize that we will expect professional Photo-whore-threads from you, right?



99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.

How cool!

It's been a pleasure to know you over the years. We don't converse much directly, but you're genuinely one of the reasons I continue to frequent this site.

Have a fantastic 45th year!
