So I got discouraged and decided to get a new job. I locked the blog and left Facebook to avoid any perilous background GOOGLE-searches.
And people were bummed out.
Just so you all know, I cheated on this blog. All the while I was away I wrote in this little blank book I've had since 2005. It wasn't the same.
So after hearing a bunch of people say "when are you coming back?" for the 1000th time--I said "fuck it." Now I'm back.
But enough of that, there is some business to attend to:
1. Big shout out to Jimu who clean up my computer this past weekend after it came down with digital VD (massive Trojan attack).
2. Journalspace is gone? For good? Yikes. I hope that shit never happens to Blogger. Murph are you now on Blogger? What's the URL. Let me know so I can update the bookmark. I missed reading your blog (you wacky nut-case, you).
3. If you're not on Goodreads.com get on it. It's amazing. The only New Year's Resolution I have (worth a damn, at least) is to read more this year. I also want to compile a list of everything I read so I'll be able to say "I read X number of books in 2009." Because I am that lame. BIG props to Terri for introducing this site to me. This blog is still around because without it I'd lose touch with cool people like Terri (and Brenda) who I'm unable to communicate with properly because I am so awkward.
So I'm back. Happy now?
