My last post here was 2 months ago. I had deep suspicions, when I set this thing up, that would probably happen. I think I even tried to warn any new visitors stopping by that might happen, in fact. I'm the blogging version of the guy who says he'll call and then never does.
What's been up with me?
Well, last night I had a dream in which I moved to Savannah, GA. I immediately became romantically involved with the troll who lives under the bridge, and after a mere 2 weeks of dating, he dumped me for another troll who got all snotty about it and called me up going "I'm dating the troll now! I'm dating the troll now!". When I confronted the troll, crying, and asked, "But can we still be friends?" he said he wasn't sure. I worked as a dishwasher/busboy at a restaurant and lived in squalor. I had a greasy landlord who refused to fix my toilet which was leaking sewage everywhere, and my stove and refrigerator were both located in my sewage-filled bathroom. He refused to come fix my toilet until I told him I was calling 9-1-1. All I kept thinking throughout my dream was: How can I convince HGTV to do a makeover on this squalid apartment?
So other than dealing with bizarre dreams like last night's, I have no excuse for my absence except to say: once a new school year starts, I barely have time to take a shower each day. Once my (almost 2, she's almost 2!) girl gets more independent (currently, she's leaning against me, begging me to put on Dora....no, change it to Diego....no, I want Kai-lan!) I have high hopes for this to be rectified in more satisfying ways. (I could write during her 2 hour naps but, quite frankly, when she's napping, so am I.)
Anyway, I am still around. In fact, in a couple of more weeks, I'll be around much more frequently. And so if you'd like to read (more updated and hopefully less weird) updates from me, I'll be working on an exciting new collaborative blog project called COFFEE. Go HERE to find out more about it (postings will begin toward the end of October, around the 20th. I'll post a notice here when the first person writes her first post (mine will be up on the 27th).
