Falling Back

Forgive me father, for I have sinned. It has been 39 days since my last blog entry. You see, I’ve been busy with work. I’ve been sick. I’ve been drunk. I’ve been a lot of things, none of them good.

I wish I could come up with a valid excuse for my slacking, something that would make the reader say, “There there, you poor thing. Let me buy you lots of drinks.” I regret to say that I don’t even have any grade-A misbehavior to report. If you want lurid tales about a troubled soul who targeted our nation’s petting zoos as sex-tourist destinations, you will have to go elsewhere.

I did vote, which I suppose counts for something. I won’t tell you whom I voted for. It’s really none of your business. Let’s just say I’m a liberal Democrat who has no problem with a woman president but would prefer someone less shrill than the former first lady. Joan Rivers would be a step up.

Other than that, how did I spend my time off from blogging? As I said before, I was sick for a while. On January 19, I was drinking at the Argus with my pal Kim. At some point during the evening, I began experiencing fever chills. Kim is a licensed physician but she is also my drinking buddy. I therefore delegated Dr. Jameson’s to handle my medical needs, which killed the symptoms only to have them come back with a vengeance the next morning.

I felt like hell for about a week but still went into work. There are a lot of features scheduled and not much time in which to do them. It’s as if my employers want the company to turn as profit or something. Damn cheeky of them, I say.

So there you have it, more or less. I’m back. I doubt I’ll be able to blog as regularly as I have in the past but I’ll try to chime in often enough so you’ll know that I haven’t dropped dead.
