After ruminating on last night's attempted "blog-i-cide", I came to an important conclusion: this space simply means too much to me to walk away from it. Not to mention, with all the fucked up shit that has occurred in the last 12 months, both in my life and in the world at large, it would be a mistake not to continue just because of a few mean spirited assholes that I allowed to get under my skin. I have things to say and want to continue to say them.

Another major concern of mine was that perhaps too many people I directly know are aware of this blog, and that I found myself censuring...myself, which is a flaming pile of bullshit. Fuck it. I don't censure myself in person, why should I not act accordingly here? Right. No. Damn. Reason. [Although on a side note, it is a bit disconcerting to be introduced to people at a party as "Guy From Chicago"]

A word of warning though; there are several serious deadlines looming in front of me, some good, some not so good, so...this could get ugly. For one thing, I'm about to turn 30. Another is that I am facing complete and total FUCKING financial collapse. So, there's always that. But no matter what happens, I promise to try and write about it in a way I find humorous. Hopefully you will too.

Oh, and another thing; I was getting concerned that people just weren't picking up what I was laying down, as it were. As a result I subconsciously made an error in judgement, in that I tried to alter my style of prose. No more! If you don't get it, well, you just don't. SUCKS TO BE YOU.

If you want a concise, well written blog from a clean-ish living, self professed "golden boy" (e-mail with you you think I may be referring to, and if you're right I'll send you a signed pair of tube socks), there are plenty of boring blogs like that you can read instead of this hard living Chicagoans'. BURP. [scratches balls]

So there it is. I'm going to continue writing as I live, without fear. Or at least that's what I'll aspire to. Cheers. And to the haters [double bird salute] you suck can CAWK sideways.

PS - 441 posts to go until the magical 1,000 level.
PPS - Question: If and when I hit that mark, do I get a cheap gold watch?

Thank you, Anonymous well wisher!

Another thing I wanted to mention, I'm going try not being so lazy commenting on people's comments. I've heard that's good blog etiquette or some shit.

Thanks for continuing your blog, I was sad to hear that a few fucked-up assholes made you want to stop, fuck um! I just recently started reading your blog....can't wait to read more....

BTW I posted your blog post "25 THINGS THAT SUCK ABOUT CHICAGO" on my friend Mark's Facebook page. It was a popular post.

Ted, Sean and Mark like this.

Sean - this guy's frickin' witty as hell and spot-on in several areas - lars and i have been reading and reminiscing...good times...

Mark - This is faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaantastic.

Tracy - This is hilarious!!!!

Angie - #19! Yes! I HATE that guy. I want to kick him in the 'nads. But I'd probably go to hell for that.

Thanks for choosing to stay!
A Chinese proverb states, "May you live in interesting times."

The times are a fucking disaster. Maybe too interesting.

Try to let go of preconceived notions of where you would be at 30. 30 is the new 17.

When you reach 1000 I will gladly gift you a big bottle of whisky of your choice.

Hope I'm not one of the fuckers that made you want to run for the hills.

Love ya dude,

You big ol' virtual cock tease - scaring us for nothing.

Glad you're back from your 8 hour haitus.

You've mentioned in the past that you're unique within the gay community in that you don't quite fit the "norm".

You're 100% right about that! So shouldn't we hear your "unique" perspective on things?

After all, where else can we read someone say, "Fuck and Yes", "TITS", and "Rawk with its cawk out" all in one sentence?

Absolutely nowhere but here!!!

So for the sanity of your loyal readers, including mine......stick around for a while!

Glad I missed the temporary demise of GuyFromChicago. I'd have hated that. I say publish the assholes comments and let us handle them for you. We'll put a stop to that bullshit right quick. Say what you want Justin, that's why we're avid readers. And thanks!

Dane said...

I was sad to think you were leaving, but very happy to see you're not going anywhere! The bike post was hilarious and I love the labels you use.

Aaron said...

A blowie for you at 1000 posts, mate. Happy to oblige.

JUSTIN said...

@Thomas...I could make so many jokes mind:)

Bruce said...

Justin, write what you want to write how you want to write it, that's why most of us are here. Thank you for continuing the blog, it's one of my daily reads and it and you would have been greatly missed. Keep up the excellent work.
