A quick question

I claimed earlier today that I've been depressed for about ten days. Dick thought this was amusing and told me to look at my blog.

Have all my entries been depressing? I think not. Sure, I often write about what might be considering depressing topics, but I believe I've been in a good mood since sometime in April. Entries like "Pretty in Pink" and 9 other EIIIProduct drawings (see labels to the right) were certainly not products of a depressed spirit!

I'm sorry that I haven't kept up with the amusing drawing (to those who miss them), but I've been busy knitting lace.

This may be the shortest post ever. I have plenty I could be writing about, but I'll ask you, whoever you are, has this entire blog been depressing? I'd put up a poll, but I haven't had much response to previous ones (oh, how depressing!)

I do want to know what you think, all half dozen of you, whoever you are.

Image note: A image note about a large question mark? Yes indeed. I didn't realize the image would be so big. At this size, in proportion to the post, the question mark almost loses its meaning.

I am aware of the idea that one is not supposed to ask questions of ones imagined readers. The question mark, in an essay, is sloppy writing (or something, I forget). I could go on for a while about why I do like question marks, but it seems absurd. Then again, there have been many blog posts recently about the semi-colon, which has been a disputed piece of punctuation for over a hundred years. I am at this moment too lazy to back this up with any evidence, but if you want some, just google it.

I have to say, I was a little worried about you but now I feel better!

Oh dear! Anonymous worrying. Should I worry about who you are?

If one equates worry with caring, though, I thank you, whoever you are, for that.

Yes, Julie your posts have been pretty depressing, so much so I'm considering deleting the bookmark for your blog in my browser...

Haha, just kidding, it makes me happy others are depressed too:)

Wow! I've been bookmarked?!

I don't think misery loves company. But I do think it needs it AND plenty of conversation to boot.

Wonder what "to boot" means, and where it comes from. . .and if "booting up the computer" comes from that old expression. . .

Anyway, thanks.

Yep, I bookmarked your blog in folder titled, interestingly enough, INTERESTING.

But seriously, I hope you feel better soon. All six of your readers need you!:))

I'd like to know that, about boot and booting, too..
