Space, well it rained madness upon me this morning. After rising at 5 AM to initiate my plunder of your E-mail addresses to qualify us for more free WWW space from GeoCities, I was immediately greeted with a frozen machine. Five hours later working like a geek I finally cleared out the last problem. Some anti-virus software I activated two days ago was crippling my machine. Go figure. After being caught in a loop where I couldn't get to my harddrive to snatch the offending software off, I finally lucked onto my desktop by some accident. I still don't know how I succeeded, but here I am again back to what passes as normal around here. And so I finally got busy with the land grab at hand. Always excited to acquire new turf from which to publish, publish, publish, I not only was swift in snagging us the Sports address, I sniffed around and swiped two more free sites with your A & B suffixes. It occurred to me that since the computer had shaved off the characters "84A" when posting that original registration confirmation, then perhaps it had no record of it, and thereby would not be flagged as a duplicate known E-mail code within the GeoCities system. I was right! Greedy bastard that I am I also tried out your speculative password for the B suffix, and it worked. I've already retrieved from each of the three mailboxes the WWW Administrator's return note the the authorized passwords. It's a fait accompli! Three more megabytes of web space, woweee! Thanks.

Some of your sentiments in your last note surprised me. I wasn't intimating that Sue could be "lured away" by my simple absence. However, here in DC, we don't have what I consider "normal" friends. Those who hang around here are simply put, alcoholic losers, rockheads, moochers, I think vultures was the word I used last time. They think nothing of descending upon this house and just taking over. One or two of them are also crack or heroin junkies, although they know how we both despise the roles and the drugs they waste their lives upon in some twisted romantic tragedy they call a good time, and don't use that stuff here. None are real sports fans, or readers, or writers, or computer geeks. We like the same music, but I am the weak link in this cult of all things hard rock. We're a decade or so older than most of these critters, a step or so slower in most cases. I'm too tired for the scene. Time to back off.

Sue knows how I feel, but we, she is simply ill-equipped to deal with my own desparate urges so long sublimated, and I suppose now laid to rest once again BECAUSE I cannot, and will not leave Sue. We are family. That's as sure as it gets. I challenge anyone to match our level of trust and co-dependence.
Nobody comes over for a visit without staying the whole weekend. It's a very weird situation, but despite these calamities of character, they are the closest thing to friendship I have in this slum part of town. Sue's friends at work rarely include us in their social milieu. In that scenario, I am the beast. So frankly we live very isolated lives, at least when compared to what I would aspire to in another place, another time.

You suggested that if getting married brings on the kinds of feelings I've been showing you in recent correspondence then you are probably ready to swear off the wedding thing right now. Well, Space, marriage is nothing but a clash or a merging of two personalities with the hope that two heads and two bodies are better than one. Marriage itself says nothing about the glorious unions possible, or the horrendous incompatibilities which crop up in some. Now modern statistics state one conclusion as to which is easier to attain, but then the last paragraph in the note I forwarded to you (Status Quo) emphasizes that most people simply are too lazy to accentuate the good and eradicate the bad in a relationship.

It is sad that I fear to leave town simply because I know Sue is as weak and disturbed as I am and would allow these bums called friends to distract her and our general household protocol in their search for a good time and sanctuary from the wiles of their own boredom at our expense. For years we tolerated so much garbage in trying to be "good" neighbors, hoping to effect a change or something in the way they operated, but we have long given that up as sheer fantasy on our part. Meanwhile, these jerks still are our "friends". But as for marriage. Other than in the sex department, we have what is best described as a "perfect" union. Those notes I wrote to you a few weeks ago were candid, fair, and honest in respect to how I felt, and as I've you may have noticed, personal communication is NOT a problem for me. Sue knows how I feel, but we, she is simply ill-equipped to deal with my own desparate urges so long sublimated, and I suppose now laid to rest once again BECAUSE I cannot, and will not leave Sue. We are family. That's as sure as it gets. I challenge anyone to match our level of trust and co-dependence.

Ahhhh...that last word brings many psychologists to their feet shouting, "Foul! Foul!" We however find nothing wrong in admitting this closeness and dependency, and dare state that the absence of these qualities in today's modern union is what drives each to extinction in short order. But like we agreed earlier, each marriage is unique, because the people involved are to a degree unique to themselves. Unfortunately most people are rubber stamped morons without a clue who they are much less the other person they are seeking to manipulate through marriage's love and war propositions. Know thyself. And mirror thee unto thy mate. Two are indeed better than one, if the general wanderlust of the single guy is any indication.
