A few days ago I got to chatting with our good friend Bersercules again after it had been a while. I was mostly bringing up the C-11 petition to him but we decided to talk some more after then. He asked me just how many people I talk to and it dawned on me that I only talk to two people. My brother is barely ever home and when he is I don't talk to him. Even though I talk to my dad it's a very rare occasion, and I barely ever see the rest of my family. This is also not counting the folks who talk to me on Twitter.
I talk to other people here and there, and I've talked to some of you even on a temporary basis but I don't really have conversations with a lot of people. You can tell me I can hit you up whenever I want but I'm not great with the whole conversation thing. Jessie is the only person who I really converse with, and I think most of the effort is hers. If anything it's handy that Tay (the other person I talk to) has so many commitments and can't spend too much time talking to me because then things would just die. It's happened before. I used to talk all the time to this girl (I talk to a lot of girls, I just get on easier with them) on a forum, but when she got my email address the communication just fizzled out and we never chatted again even though she added me on Facebook too.
I'm not brilliant with small talk, or really talking in general. When someone gets more of a chance to talk to me, say through IM's or emails, eventually things do just die. I'm still not sure how me and Jessie have remained friends for so long. We can just talk and talk. But she's noticed it. When we get together we don't talk all that much. Nowhere near as much as we talk online. Chances are if I met Tay, or Fang, Or SkyRazor, or Poor__Leno in person and Hayes-willing one day I will, I would be quiet with them too.
Who knows, maybe I should join a forum or two or something. I'm much better talking online than I am in real life. Though of course the real solution is pretty simple.

Shortest full length post by me? Possibly.
