Preface: TL;D-F’ing-R — This is a ridiculously long (and much overdue) set of replies to replies (many thanks to the rock star coder over at XKit). If your name isn’t on the list, and assuming you aren’t terribly interested in
self-aggrandizing social chatter, you probably don’t want to click this nice, shiny, underlined button. (You don’t. I swear you don’t.)
Thank you, Christine!
You’re too sweet. Thank you!
::hands over spare Albuterol inhaler:: Don’t you die on me!
Loooooove this!!! :)
Thank you very much. I had some wonderful inspiration.
Hot for teacher?
She’s not your average substitute.
Thank you so much!
Awww! Love you, Matty.
So, so mutual, Katelyn. <3
Love how you summed her up!!
Only scratching the surface, my dear. I could write a novel.
Haha, love it! Well deserved (:
I’ll never agree to those terms. ::poker face::
its your own Damn fault Pal… I consider you a Gas station when My motor runs dry.
Dude, Kevin, you’re awesome. At least I’m fueling a classic.
Lol! Why did we both hit you at once like that? xo
It was a conspiracy—only explanation. You two… ::hugs::
One of these days it’ll show up in the lost and found box I put outside the door. We have some really honest wildlife here in Virginia. ::doesn’t get hopes up::
lol that was epic!
Not nearly as epic as the days and days of searching. I swear, I think I should enlist Willie’s help for an underfunded archaeological dig.
IV!!! VII!!!!!! hahahaha
Oddly enough, those were the only two my mom would agree were funny. I think she’s biased. -_-
I just love your voice. Very comforting. :)
I think I received this mistakenly. ::clears throat::
aw, I would take the goldfish from their bowls and watch them swim in the puddles and “Swamps” or get the umbrella and replicate the “singin in the rain” scene. Lil entertainer, had anyone been watching :p
Please, dear God, let there be home footage of this. There has to be.
Damn I love this
You have an aversion to lights as well, s’why the bugs all fall in love with your screen ; ) Or maybe they come to read your poetry, awww.
I do. I really do. I think I look better in the dark. Sometimes I pretend to be Bela Lugosi’s awkward-looking grandson.
awesome piece and awesome voice
Half right. Still: ::steals a wolfie hug::
I love your voice Matt. So warm, and the accent… It’s like a hug for my ears. <3
Oh my… ::pulls at collar:: I am going to practice my hugging voice on you, then.
Ha. Great story, precious lesson.
I hope someone hears it and avoids making the same mistake. Thanks, Ari! <3
Sometimes life takes over. I wish people here would understand that. One can’t be connected to Tumblr 24 / 7 / 365.25!
It does. It really does. It doesn’t help that Tumblr keeps taking away most of our communication tools, though I have faith they have their reasons for code obfuscation. You hear that, Tumblr? I have faith! Now, stop testing it!
As far as you know. I have yet to be spotted on video. ::wink, wink::
Beautiful, you two!
It’s all the anon. I swear. S/he brings it out of me, tells me the same.
I keep coming back to this to read it again and itch my back with my ponytail shaking head. LOVE IT
The only humane thing to do: ::scratches your back:: <3
I am applauding in my head.
Thank you so much! I’m sorry if the noise gave you a headache.
Oh my. Thank you again, Matt <3
Anytime, and I mean that. Just… write more! =P <3
Thank you, dear. I really did my best on those two sonnets.
I hate those days : (
Days, weeks, months, years. Who’s keeping track? ()=)
there goes my heart…
::catches heart before it hits the ground::
YOU HAVE KILLED ME
Take it like a poet!
yeah. i’m not on here. pfft.
Well, with that attitude…
I won’t pretend I understand much of this, but it’s very raw, and excellent.
Raw, indeed. I tore out a chunk and shared it. It was even more difficult to read in front of a crowd. =’(
This is such an intimate, personal poem, and you have constructed it so elegantly and beautifully. I love it.
I have to give credit where credit is due. I wrote the poem in a frenzy, but Katelyn saved me the agonizing work of structuring it. She’s a whiz, she is. Thank you so much, Sarah. <3
Difficult and well done!
OMG, it was like Algebra II all over again!
FALLS DOWN AND CRIES
Get upppppp. I just washed the floor. ::sobs::
Squee! *does happy dance in chair*
Worth it. So worth it.
How the heck did this happen ???
Well, you know… you punch keys, I click hearts….
the final three lines of this are just, yes.
Thank you! One of these days, I’ll understand how to do that with all the lines. One day….
i’d like to make dragons with smoke rings =D
It’s so much fun! You close your eyes and pretend you’re amazing at it. Suddenly, you’re amazing at it. (I cheat at life, a lot.)
rp-ybanez replied to your post:
I totally love the format—it’s scattering like a mouse scurrying around. Very cool, Matt.
Leave it to you to understand, Rex.
“Reach out and grab your… interest” — I find this hilarious. :>
OMG, I worked so long and hard at that… joke.
Omg! Just saw this! Lol Thank you! (blush)
Life lesson: a blushing Bettie is so much safer and more cuddly than a Bouncing Betty.
Thank you all so much for taking the precious moments to bombard me with your love and support and hilarity. It makes the days here on Tumblr less of an escape and more of a magical experience. I’m sorry it took so long to get back to each of you, but be assured that I have a long memory.
