Add me to the list of long-time readers who finally created an account here just to comment on this. (Although I had to wait because IT WAS ABOUT TO UPDATE!!!)
The thing that really strikes me is how often we say we don't have time for things. I'm especially bad about this. As a business owner (small web development company), work tends to take over my life. I often make plans, only to break them deciding that I just "don't have time." We recently migrated all of our hosting clients to a new server which was pretty much two weeks of me barely sleeping, forgetting to eat, doing pretty much nothing but work. Once that was finally over, I decided I was officially taking Monday and Tuesday completely off. Zero work. Even zero Skyrim, my most recent non-work hobby, since I've gotten into writing mods and that often feels more like work than play...
And I woke up Monday to this. And it was beautiful. Discovering it on the morning of my first day in ages where I was determined to do absolutely nothing but relax almost felt like a sign from the universe. And the forums have provided no end of amusement.
Now it's Thursday. (Um, I think. I lose track of such things sometimes.) And I have been working. But still following the forums, still watching the comic. Work constantly makes me feel like I never have Time for anything fun, yet I found Time for this. As have so many others. I feel like there's something profound I want to say, but I can't seem to find the words, and honestly the above was already way too serious for my taste.
BTW, I'm female, I'm from the south (America - the American south, not South America), and while I do agree we need some kind of gender-neutral way to refer to people, the use of y'all is making me cringe beyond belief. I feel like I should apologize on behalf of southerners everywhere if that escapes too far into common usage. I think I'd be equally amused and horrified to hear that said with a non-American accent of any kind.
