Things have been...busy lately. I haven't had much time to tie up the loose ends of a few things I'd like to tie up, and there are a few more threads dangling now that I should probably at least mention.
First of all, I'm back to work, hacking blogs and the like. I've got a Report that's actually overdue, so I'll be getting that done today. Basically, it's back to the grind. I guess my 4th of July weekend early. No fireworks for me this year. Not like I want to see anything exploding after the last few days.
Secondly, apparently Poe has a blog now. I'm not sure why exactly she started it, and I haven't gotten the chance to ask her, just because I haven't even seen her or talked to her since that night that Caper died.
And while I'm on that subject, Poe, I'm so terribly sorry. I wasn't thinking when I wrote that thing about you being a cute drunk. Forgive me. You're attractive when you're not drunk too, and I think that that maybe sounds worse but what I meant was that it was just nice to see you smile and loosen up for once and that you really do act cute when you're drunk. And I'm just digging myself into a deeper hole, but I hope you know what I mean. Also, the comment about the beer goggles? I'm stupid. Ignore it. I can't believe I said that.
And one more quick note: I looked back through the comments and...I think it was Hakeri Ryuu who called me Alan. I'm...really not sure how to react to that. I think I'd prefer id you didn't call me by my real name.
But anyway. The big issues now. First of all, Kyle. He's stopped reading my blog, now that his curiosity's been satisfied. Let me explain a bit more. That story, naturally, was a bit dramatized and doesn't perfectly parallel actual events, though it's close enough that I feel like I can say it's true or accurate. The little flaws were basically just so Kyle assumed I was telling a story. Anyway, he's making a vlog about the Slender Man with his friends. It's not up yet, because the project's still in the early stages, and they're apparently writing the story and filming it all before adding any sort of effects (most of them suck at video editing and want some practice) so that they can just sit back and release it all at leisure. They all think it's still just some fun game. I gave them that opportunity. Kyle's protected, and everyone around him is also protected, just so he suspects nothing. I know that The Boss may eventually break the deal, but he's stuck by his word so far. Of course, all this means that I'm all still pretty new to this. I started blogging less than a month before I joined, and before that, I had only seen Marble Hornets. So I'm learning. Hyde gave me summaries of a few major blogs and vlogs, since he'd been around for longer than I had, and that helped a lot. But yeah, that's the story with Kyle and how exactly I got involved in all of this. Happy?
And finally, reflections on Caper's death. It's been hard, I won't lie. He's been the best friend I've had here so far, and right when we started opening up to each other more, he went and died. Well...he probably would have never opened up, because according to Poe, even she doesn't know his real story. I guess we'll never know. I can only imagine how hard this must be on Poe. I mean, they were together for, what, half a year? And they were always so close. Like I said, until that night, I'd never seen Poe outside of Caper's presence. I feel like I should go talk to her about it, but I feel like she'd take it the wrong way, especially after what I wrote yesterday. If she needs to say something, I guess she'll say it on her blog.
But yeah. I'd like to just use the rest of this post to take a moment of silence for Caper. I'm sorry I didn't answer when it mattered, but I have one now: I don't think you're a bad person. I wish I knew, but I really don't think that you are.
Goodbye, Caper. I'll miss you.
Well, back to the daily grind. Maybe working will take my mind off of things.
