I gather that here on MuNu, it is de-lurking week. This means that if you come by and visit but don't generally leave comments, this is the week to leave a comment, to step out of the shadows, to just say hello or to slag me off because you think the site is shite. Seriously, if only to satisfy my own curiousity, should you choose to de-lurk, would you mind telling me how you came to this blog? Thanks!

I don't know if I'm a lurker or not, but howdy!

I suspect I started reading in response to a comment you made in the distant past on TexasBestGrok.

I can't remember, RP. My brain core dumps after 6 months!

I turned from a habitual comment leaver into a lurker. I suspect that this is, in part, because I have let my own blog lapse. That, and I feel that I can always do just one more thing here or there, and end up with no time to even send an email to my family.

In any case, I have been following your posts. I'm still around, just not as visible, I guess; many of your posts have been hard for me to respond to, hitting very close to home.

As always, thinking thoughts of joy, sympathy, compassion and delight among a myriad of other things your way...

I can't remember either. But de-lurking is apparently all the rage in the entire blogosphere this week, so.

apologies for the lurking, but i can never think of anything to comment. if i remember right i found your site through snooze button dreams one day.

I don't lurk much, but I'll comment anyway. I believe I found your blog when you were new on mu.nu. I haven't actually scouted out the new mu.nus in a long, long time. In fact, I just decreased my faves list because I didn't visit some of them regularly anymore. Yeah, I know, I suck.

Hi, I am a lurker and found you by accident. I started reading about the time of your g-fathers funeral and it reminded me of my grandparents. We are jewish as well. I just kept reading and I enjoy your blog immensely. Thank You

I'm not a lurker; I'm just in here making trouble.

Yes, again! ;-P

How did I get here? By clicking on my 'daily reads', got to have have a portion of RP on a regular basis!! : )

I came here for the nudie pictures. I stayed for the articles.

I didn't realize it was delurk week, and this is my first visit here. I came here via your comments at Jennifer's.

The first blog I read was written by a teenage neighbor and detailed an experience of vomiting on her boyfriend during oral sex. I did not feel that this knowledge in any way enriched my life. I grew up in the age of dairies and/or strict anonymity and am trying to make an adjustment. I recently published a novel and have been advised that blogging for a writer who wants to sell books is absolutely necessary. Hence, I became a lurker and fortunate my sister ( a Francophile compelled to click on the name) was already into RP, the most refreshing and delightful of bloggers. For me, the wonderful stories of Girl Child and Boy Child bring back memories of a time in my own life long passed. You bring pleasure to my days. Happy Birthday to Girl Child and thank you.

I've been lurking a lot. Too much.
And now I feel guilty.

Oh- I think I wandered in from SnoozeButtonDreams a long time ago.

Hi RP,

I've left you a few comments before, but mostly I lurk. My good friend Angineer recommended your blog to me last year and I've been a loyal reader ever since. I'm not sure how she found you though.

I'm here from time to time... I just don't often comment! :)
