I keep using this excuse, but since it WON'T go away, I can't help it. I LOVE the game and think you're all fantastic writers with lovely characters, and I love my two boys - but I can't manage to get online for more than an hour at a time with the storms, power outages, and my internet connection going south. And the comm is so nicely active and everyone is on AIM but I can't manage to get any time on, and I don't want to hold up anyone else's storylines or be an inactive jerk. Being MIA on AIM and slow is fine for PSL's, but it's lousy in a comm, and I don't want to frustrate anyone!
So it's with great regret that I withdraw. I hope you all have a blast and that the game thrives! I wish I could stay, but it'd be unfair. Thank you to the mods for letting me play at all. Hopefully when the weather settles I come across some of you again.
I'm very sorry for any inconvenience, and I wish I could have played out some of the storylines discussed!
