For feck’s sake. It’s the 7th of January already. 7 days of 2008 have come and gone and I haven’t blogged at all. Not really. That little post doesn’t count, that was just a “hey, how are ya” sort of post. Not only that, but I also haven’t really been commenting on other blogs neither. I blame the whole “catch-up catch-up” mentality I had at the start of the year. All those posts to read meant no time to leave a comment.
I’m back in the swing of things now though. At least I think I am. I’ve left comments on blogs today So we’re all good to go.
Or we would be, if I had something to say, but I’m decidedly thought-constipated lately. Not verbally. I mean, look at all the words I’ve already typed out, so yes, I can blather on and on, but it is all with the nothingness. Very little of the point-making.
And those of you who are now thinking, there were points in the past? Well, y’all can just hush. They were subtle, well-hidden points, full of meaning and depth for those who’d care to look hard enough.
But, in an effort to kick the auld brain into action I have decided to post. Despite my lack of a reason. After all, perhaps the very meaningless nature of this particular post is really laced with meaning, in a meta/philosophical/arsey way. Then again perhaps not.
Christmas was christmas. There was eating and presents and rain and family and even mass. All the usual whatchamacallits. And New Years was new years, with the annual delay in all texts and everyone went crazy with the “Happy New Year” text to everyone in their phonebook. And now, here we are, back with the routine of work and everything. Course I’m still thinking that we should only work a four day week. But no one seems to have the guts to implement my plan. Boo hiss.
