Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



I Think I Have An Obsessive Compulsive Stalker

Someone "J" used to be my best friend for about 5 years from about 1995 to 2000, but then she moved away and we've had limited infrequent contact. While she lived two houses down the street we talked a bunch, cooked, shared stories, and baked bread. She was a front porch person. Her sister from far away asked to be my friend in Facebook. I met the sister of my BF and felt she was veRy opinionated and bossy. After a while on Facebook it seemed she started to fail in her ability to communicate, and I grew weary of seemingly somewhat artificial turmoil. So in rare form, I dropped her as a friend in Facebook, something I rarely do.

I have many names based on my legal name of Ernest. My names range from Ernest, Ernie, Ern and then from my friend J I received the name "E". Soon everyone who passed through her veRy public house caLLed me E.

So imagine my surprise a few nights ago when I received a Facebook message from my former best friend that says:

Hi Ernie, how are you doing? question. always wanted to know why you stopped e-mailing my sister. did she offend you?

I thought it was a strange request coming at around 2:30 AM, but I started a detailed reply that basicaLLy said her sister was insane ...BUT... I suddenly noticed that the message didn't begin with "Hi E" - it said "Hi Ernie" - so I erased my original reply after noticing that sure enough every former message from J had caLLed me "E".

So I responded briefly AND received no reply:

   Hi J-----!

   First of all, is this reaLLy J-----? J----- always called me E.

After two days I stiLL had not received a reply, so it made me think the crazy sister of J had hijacked J's FB account.

So I stopped by J's daughter's house right around the corner from me and got J's phone number. I caLLed her this afternoon and she was surprised that someone had used her FB messaging disguised as her trying to trick me.

Hello Mr ESB

I know what you are thinking, you are thinking is that really that Rob Z Tobor or is it someone else who thinks I am me. But of course you are really someone else too. So someone who is probably not me has sent a message to someone who is not you.

Well if they (those who are not us) are going to send each other little comments I am going to send one as well so . . . .

Hello Mr ESB.

Rob: I am veRy sure there are several moments when you know what I am thinking better than I know, especiaLLy if I am asleep and you are awake, which because of our quarter of the earth time delta, occurs quite often most likely unless, of course, we decided to sync our general awake times, which could be split up by me waking up and going to sleep three hours earlier and by you going three hours the other direction. I think my math is correct eXcept I am just woke up from an afternoon nap with an insufficient amount of coffee and there is too much violence on my teleBision but not of my choosing.

Hey esbboston...you know I always use the full bit, so you're safe. Nice detective work! But then again, maybe you could've provided insight to crazy?

Never mind. I'm suddenly having visions of boiling rabbits...

Run, man!

Marianne: I felt that she was already getting lost sometimes in my eXplanations of previous eXplanations. There were alot of things going on in her life that I didn't need to participate either. Hah, 'boiling rabbits', I get that movie reference, GC in FA.

It is nice to have a little control in the determination process of who your friends are.
