By now, you may have noticed a slight shortage of posts. Or rather more time in between posts. I have no excuse. What can I say? Sometimes life sneaks up behind you and hits you over the head with a sledgehammer.
I know the competition for your attention is fierce and there are about nine gazillion blogs out there that are just waiting to snap you up and steal you away from me. I hope that you will bear with me during this little literary dryspell. Actually, you may be feeling something of a relief that I am shutting up ever so slightly. If so, you're welcome.
One of the blogs that I read (Telling Dad) had a recent post about the top five reasons he will never be famous. His readers thought that he was ready to throw himself off a fourth story window, but he was actually just venting about the fact that it is hard work to keep coming up with original stuff every day. For him, it might be doubly hard because he writes a humor blog and being funny all the time isn't easy. He's definitely one of the people I read daily, just because he and his wife duke it out on the blog regularly over things like eating crabcakes and cheetos in bed and the fact that he bought the wrong colored toilet at an auction that didn't match the rest of the bathroom. He's been working on getting the fire truck he bought registered with the DMV. He's funny. I'm pretty sure he will be famous for just that reason. I'm funny occasionally. Sorry I can't do it every day. I wish I could.
I've been working at this blog for almost a year now and I am slowly adding readers, but it has been a long, torturous process. I have
Justin tells me that most people are looking for a short paragraph or two when they go blog stopping. This is because (I think) our attention spans have become that of a gnat's and most people are so busy these days that they have no more than five minutes to read something. But I feel that if I don't write something of substance, I am cheating you. It feels like I've taken the easy way out or been lazy and regardless of that "I am lazy" tattoo on my forehead that I got during my mid-life crisis when I was 35, I really do have a work ethic.
Anyway, what I wanted to say is that I'm still here, even though I haven't had a shower yet or gotten out of my pajamas and it's 10:15 in the morning. I'm moving a little slower, but I'm sure I will continue to
Thank you for your patience. You may now go back to your regularly scheduled job/child/life/online farm. As Arnold said in The Terminator....I'll be baaack....
