i might owe you an apology

January 12th, 2008

it has been brought to my attention by Hockey God, Mr. Blog Police, that my blogging is “suffering” since I took a “real” job. Well. That could be. Do I owe you an apology? (Tosses out random apologies, considers eating breakfast, realizes she hasn’t called Girl Scout Troop Leader to confirm Cooky Appointment. Church tomorrow, lead teacher? WTF?)

Look on the bright side — this week I deposited my first “real” paycheck and the checks for the bills? They did not bounce.

Here are some lovey-links for you:

Go see Zoot. For a woman who recently lost her “real” job, she’s got a lot going on.

Qanzas is my new idol.

Pioneer Woman
has a new woof! (Why is everyone but me getting a new puppy? I’m stamping my feet right now.)

Dooce gets all the lovin’ (and hatemail) but her husband Jon has got it going on, too. I love geeky guys, you know this already.

Melissa Lion and I are going to do a coffee talk/book-signing (for her)/book giveaway (for me) the end of January, coffee house to be announced. (Somewhere in Portland.) I’ll post details as soon as I figure it out, but we’re thinking last Saturday in January (the 26th). So if you’d like to meet us, plan on it!

    Blogging? When there’s money to be made? Things to do? Commitments to live up to? Who has the time?

    (At least that’s the mantra I’m repeating to myself in the mirror these days, anyway…)

    Having said that – get on the stick, will you? (Yeah, I’m saying that to myself as well…)

    I’ve just received a shipment of limited edition hardcover copies of Upstream that I’m ready to hand out. I’m really not kidding. Can’t wait! Oh, and kids are welcome, right WM?

    Don’t worry about it WM. We’re happy to hear from you when you can write, no apologies needed. And tell HG that you’d have more time for blogging if he took over dinner-cooking-duty.

    Understandable and unavoidable. Just makes us, your fans, appreciate your posts even more!

    As soon as school action starts this Thursday, my contributions will slow to a trickle, no doubt. Not to mention being called to jury duty the following week! Crimeny!

    And, can you idolize that which already idolized you? ‘Dunno. But, that and a load of baked goods from a newly purchased Kitchen Aid will get you a family-friendly party when I take this show on the road! Can’t wait.

    Work? Is the pits. Mondays should be banned. January, in fact, needs to get a grip and stop torturing us all. Men who don’t help out need to go live by their mother OR get a maid service in. I am sitting here looking at work. Does that count? Oh, uninspired Monday!
