Involuntary Absence

Last week, I failed to commit to ‘blogging’ regularly.  It wasn’t because I didn’t have ideas of what to write on, mind you.  Oh, I have some ideas.  Plenty of ideas.  Don’t believe me?  That’s too bad, because I, uh, I have lots of ideas of what to write about.  Dragons and such.  Try and do better, motherfucker.

Mostly, though, I have been so strung up by work that I truly haven’t had the free time entirely necessary to work on web logs.  Sure, I could have made some half-assed posts here and there, but I’m committed to excellence, damnit.

Sure, I wanted to make post-St. Valentine’s Day posts, or remark about Kosovo, or even talk about dragons, but if I do that, I’m going to at least spend 30 minutes on it.  Would you rather have me write up some shitty post in just five or ten minutes?  You got it pal: today.  But this is it.

It’s not like I didn’t have 30 minutes or even and hour or two of free time during the past week – I had that.  It’s just that, you know, I used that time to watch Mr. Show, and I just got back into Prison Break.  Recently I started watching the third season after neglecting it for so long.  I’m glad I did that.

Sure, I could’ve posted something instead of watching Prison Break, but what the fuck do I get out of it?  Damaged retinas, carpal tunnel syndrome, and vesicointestinal fistula; that’s what I fucking get.  What would you choose?  The answer is obvious.

Of course, I will try to print more fake news stories and other musings when possible.  This coming week will likely be busier than the last, but my ambitions are high.  Well, I gotta piss, so, whatever.


  1. If you set a regular schedule, you’re fucking yourself. If it takes a sabbatical to rejoin “Club Get-Right”, the quality is far more worth it.

  2. You sound pissed. no pun intended .. and not entirely intended to be funny either. I mean annoyed is good, french fry seasoning was annoyed .. and yet joyful. Today you sound like a hemroids patient on a sand-paper slide.
