Ivory Tower

I am at once both isolated and connected.  While I'm glad I have contact with so many friends via internet, there are times I feel I might as well be in an ivory tower in another dimension.  Seriously, I have friends all over the world but beyond listening, reading, and offering advice when needed, I feel kinda useless.  If folks were closer, I'd most definitely be helping out in other ways.  I'm just glad they stay in touch as they are able.  Even though I'm a bit of an introvert, if I call someone friend I do not do so lightly and I do my best to help but lately I'm feeling rather powerless.  And no, I don't want anyone to cut contact or stop sending me info, I just wish someone could show me a more direct way to help. 

Heck, even in interactive fiction with Heroes ARG
/360/Evolution interactive component, I am stuck on the sidelines as far as aiding any canon characters goes.  Sure I could create someone new, even several someones new to aid as part of the new Survival game but I'm far more interested in helping existing canon ones most especially Claude as well as Micah.

I do know what it's like. I've had a hard time making IRL friends to do things with because they're either busy or aren't interested. :( I do have people I talk to, but that's just it.

Hmm, if you need an Edgar to watch your back, then I'm there.

(I sadly can't find any sites that have scanned the new TV Guide with the first promo photo of Edgar, but he's played by this dude...who just happened to be in a film with Christopher Eccleston. Which now has made me do some comics of Edgar and Claude acting like Walt and Steve-Dave from "Clerks".)

Thanks. At the moment I don't need my own back watched but I wish there was a way I could help my RL friends better as well as help Claude and the others via the ARG. The only character they let us "contact" recently was Micah.

New season of Heroes looks good though. I'm still worried about Claude and some of the others, though.

One of my friends met Ray Park at a convention in FL some years ago after Episode 1. She knew I was totally obsessed with him. So at the autograph table, she goes, "I have a friend in Arizona who told me to shove you in a box and mail you out to her. Would you mind?"

She got me his autograph. :) I was happy. XD

I'm so glad he actually gets to speak in this role.
