You've seen it before, and you'll see it again. This is the “sorry
I haven't updated in awhile” blog entry. Many blogs have these.
Some are written better than others. Some are actually read by people,
because “goshdarnit, I love this blog and it hasn't been updatedi n
awhile and I need to know what's happening with so-and so, and I'm
getting cranky, and I hope the 20 blogs I read updated today”.
Then there's blogs like this one, which is clearly not read by many,
possibly not read but any, but nonetheless here I am with the grand
assumption that someone actually reads this blog.
And I now tell you…sorry I haven't updated in awhile. There's
lots happening: getting ready for my son's birthday party,
project management over the lack of substantial work in the past week,
house stuff, and new addictions to mp3 blogs and Grand Theft Auto: San
I really could go on about the new GTA, but I really don't want to
right now, because that is time I'd rathering spend playing it.
I also could tell you all about these great mp3 blogs that I've begun
frequenting, but again right now I'd rather be reading those.
And besides this is the “sorry I blah blah blah” entry. As an unwritten
rule, it shouldn't be substantial. In fact, this entry is wordier than
it has any right being. And besides (that's twice in one paragraph, if
you're keeping score) if you are still reading this entry this far
down, I've stolen a precious minute or two of your life already.
You should have quit while you were ahead, when the word sorry popped up earlier in this post.
Perhaps a real post will appear here soon.
