During the brog’s layoff, one of the things that I did was what’s apparently been somewhat of an annual tradition in recent years, which was a trip down to Florida to visit Disney World as well as Universal Studio’s Halloween Horror Nights.
It’s something I enjoy greatly, because I enjoy Halloween-themed events, roller coasters, and ultimately most of the evenings result being spent in Epcot’s annual Food and Wine Festival, which is pretty much one of the greatest events in the world to me, since by the time I’m done with it, I can typically claim that I’ve eaten the entire world, and lots of the countries’ kiosks brings out some excellent quality grub and booze to begin with.
Except for South Korea, which is pretty much the biggest disappointment since like the 2007 New England Patriots. Seriously, just about every booth in the park has people indigenous, or at least of the ethnicity of the country’s booth they’re working for, except for South Korea’s. Furthermore, the food is about as good as one might expect from a place that says “Korea” but has a bunch of white people working it. When your options are the disappointing “Asian” pork taco from last year, and a “Kimchi Dog,” it’s like offering a Mexican person visiting from Mexico, Taco Bell or Del Taco.

So, what I had feared might have happened, did happen; with my site down for the indeterminate amount of time it’s been down, I’ve simply stopped writing. Not only have I really stopped writing, I haven’t even given much thought about writing until I really sat down and started writing this. As this post is entitled, out of sight, out of mind.
I do not want to get used to this.
However, I can’t necessarily say it’s a terrible thing that such has happened, as since the brog’s temporary offline status has taken effect, I’ve actually been pretty busy in my daily everyday life’s affairs, likely to the point of where anything that I would’ve posted, probably wouldn’t have been of much quality that appeases my personal standards in the first place. I won’t really get into everything that’s happened since the period of time in which the brog was operational, but I will say that most all of it has been positive.
More than a lot of people that know me might expect.

I had intended on going to AWA this year. I actually had a pretty decent time the previous year, since I went for just a single day, and I took a good amount of pictures, and the venue was a good place to take said pictures, which made me happy. I hung out with some friends occasionally, and in spite of the fact that most of the people there made me feel even more ancient than my self-perception of my age is, I had a pleasant time.
I was kind of hoping to replicate that experience again this year; especially after the quality debacle I engaged in at Dragon*Con with the pictures I took, I kind of wanted some redemption.
Well, none of that happened.

And I can’t post to it
Should I even keep writing?
The answer to this should be yes, but I’d be the first to admit that with my site and all Mossgreen sites down on account of the servers being physically moved from their old home to their new home, it’s almost as if I don’t have a brog anymore at all, and I feel no compulsion to write. But due to the fact that I know that it’s only a matter of time before everything is back up online, that I should probably have some posts to post, for the sake of my OCD of wanting to have at least a post every weekday, as well as the fact that ultimately, I never really want to not write.
But yes, if you’re one of my six readers, I’m sure you’ve noticed that the site’s been down for [insert seemingly eternally indeterminate measurement of time], because the servers are completely offline, unplugged, and are sitting god knows where until they’re plugged back in and fed with Induku-internet once again.
What this means is that I’ll try my best to keep writing in spite of the fact that whatever I write on whatever date literally has nowhere to go, and then try and go back and retroactively post them when I had intended to post them, so that I can appease my neurotic need for continuity.
But even I admit that it’s a little weird feeling writing in word documents, only for them to go nowhere and sit until I can have my brog back up and running.
