Getting back in the saddle….
I’m back. Sort of.
I took a few months off from blogging partially because I took a new job that limited my time to write proper posts (I spend several hours crafting an average post- this fact likely surprises several of you who feel I talk out my ass most of the time), and partially because blogging started to feel like actual work. I spent two weeks combing through multi-level marketing resources and woo-filled new age nutritional sites trying to hobble together a well crafted response to Neil’s ridiculous noni juice claims. I still haven’t published those posts yet, but I will publish one this week. I do this to myself at least once a year, where I take on a subject that bores me to submission. (See last years astrology debacle)
So anyhow, this post is just to announce that:
- I’m still here, and now employed at a job that pays me twice as much as before. I expect that now that I’m officially upper-middle class by income standards- I’ll immediately become a conservative or libertarian obsessed with hoarding my hard earned money. Fairness was all fine and dandy, but the world looks different on the other side of the counter at the Soup Kitchen folks- so don’t come crying for a full bowl cuz I’ll beat you with the ladle.
- I should be able to post at least twice a week. This will be, for some, a stark improvement over my previous few months of a post whenever the fuck I felt like it. For others, this will be not often enough- and to you I say “live with it”. To still others, this will be of no consequence at all- either because they don’t read my blog or they just click on a post and assume without reading it what I was going to say.
- For those who know me, my wife is doing great and our new daughter is due to arrive some time in December. Her name will be Geneva Belle, and we are planning to use a midwife for the first time because you don’t have any continuity between the OB you visit and the one who delivers the baby in the city we live in. Plus the OB we have is a douche. A midwife will be a big improvement for me over driving 2 hours to a small town hospital so that the doctor my wife likes can birth our child. Seriously. We did that 3 times already.
So welcome back. Thanks for your patience. I’ll try not to disappoint.
