    Hey Guys,

    I'm clearing off RJ but wanted to say a proper goodbye to everyone.
    I've had a very memorable time on here, I've been challenged, titillated and totally glamored by the myriad of personalities on here.
    I've had crushes, quarrels and giggles with so many of you... but I'm not good at commingling real life with online, and recently the two have begun to overlap. It's moved into an uncomfortable place and I just don't have the wherewithal to figure out how they peacefully coexist, I have too much going on and just don't have the bandwidth to figure it out right now. I wish I could have kept the two separate but I'm a dumbass and didn't.
    You all are awesome and I'm so happy I had the opportunity to engage with you... all of you, even if I called you a douche bag or you are one of the many who called me a few choice words for me.

    I'm going to keep my profile up to catch any stray emails, but will taking it down after January. This isn't a ploy for attention, isn't done in anger or out of hurt feelings, goodbye's are a normal part of life and I wanted you to get mine in the heartfelt manner of goodwill it is intended.

    Take it easy and take care of yourselves.
    Much Gratitude and Fondness,
    Joaquin the EasilyDistracted

    Damn..E D, I have always enjoyed your post: intelligent, comical, a true word smith.
    Yes, it is increasing harder to keep worlds from colliding; I blame Google.

    You will be missed

    Thank you Dustin, I've enjoyed your posts immensely thanks for everything.

    JP, I've sworn an oath of celibacy to save myself for you... unless Tank comes knocking, I'm reserving him as my "get out of jail free card".

    E.D., I still recall your part in the great debate about Political Correctness that somehow got onto New Mexico green chile.
    Good luck.

    I really enjoyed your personal stories and your irreverence. A lot of discussions will be darker from now on.icon_cry.gificon_neutral.gif

    Joaquin,

    Don't split. You'd be sorely missed. Rethink this. You have far too many insightful contributions. You write well, and you are an intelligent, fun guy here. I know guys who wouldn't miss reading any single piece you write. Don't go. At the very least - let's do the FB thing.........(FaceBook, that is!)

    It has been my pleasure Bernd. You made this online experience a better one for me simply by being a part of it, thank you.

    Thank you guys for sharing yourselves and letting me share bits of me with you, it has been such a pleasure. I didn't think my ditching out would be noticed, your responses humble me... heart felt thanks and gratitude for an experience that has changed me, in a personal and profound way. Thank you.. thank you...
