Sometimes, things go on behind one’s back… and on rare occasions, they turn out to be amazing. One of those rare occasions was just a few minutes ago, when Nosi tweeted that he had something for me. It turned out to be this blog post.
I really appreciate that Nosi went to the trouble of not only telling me – and, naturally, anyone with the link – how he and I first met in the Minecraft community, but also solicited comments from more of my awesome friends, forming a chorus of people who will miss me when I leave the Internet tomorrow. Many of those comments contained information that I wasn’t previously aware of (such as the ones from Nosi and shroomgirl). And, no word of a lie, I did cry for a couple of minutes when I got to the end of the article.
Thank you, Nosi – and thanks to everyone who took the time to express their appreciation of me. One of my manifold faults is that I have a terrible desire to be liked – and the irony is that liking me seems to come easily to people. As a person with an incredibly low opinion of himself, it means so very much that there is a large group of people out there with much higher opinions of me. It may sound trite, but you all enrich my life in ways you probably don’t even realise.
