Ignoreland

It’s been a rough couple of weeks as several major projects enter the final stretch. I’ve been too busy to even read my favorite blogs. Don’t you hate it when your job gets in the way of your life? But don't worry; I haven’t forgotten you.

Anyway, the light has been spotted at the end of the tunnel, so I hope to return to my life as an active blogger and blog reader later this week. Right now, though, I’m drained. Completely and utterly empty of any creative thoughts that don’t pertain to the job. Ugh.

In the meantime, I’m off to scream and pound pillows. And drink lots of wine. While listening to my favorite Christmas tunes, of course.

People should never have to apologise for having a life :). All the best with the screaming. That sounds like a good idea, actually !

As I get older, I am beginning to think that Christmas is a lot of drinking and screaming in general. Hang in there!

I just LOVE the way there's an R.E.M. song title for every occasion.

Do stop by HH while you're drinking wine. There are a couple of killer YouTube videos imbedded. Albert King will chase your blues away!!!

If not, no prob. We'll be around.

I've had that life, too, beth. Hang in there...soon it will be all better. Try egg nog. I think it works wonders.

I'm glad we're all falling down fatigued at more or less the same time. My remedy - Take Melinda June's eggnog suggestion, add Southern Comfort and ice.

I hope to be able to comment, blogger's been giving me the go around on that front in the few minutes I do find to be online.

It's the December Deadline Curse. Wishing you rapid relief.

cuddle with the kitties, put your feet up, have a bottle of some good red wine nearby and watch an old carole lombard film!

LEE: The screaming ... and the drinking ... worked well.

TENACIOUS S: Thank Gawd for alcoholic beverages and bubble baths ...

HAAHNSTER: I'll YouTube you as soon as I feel up to logging in at home. And I'm so glad you caught me stealing Dale's headline style.

OLD LADY: This has been my worst year-end in years. But I keep chanting "just ten more business days ..."

GLASSMEOW: And you call yourself a Peter Buck fan!

WRITE PROCRASTINATOR: It's beginning to look like Beth Coffey. G*ddamn, I love that.

BEN: It's almost embarrassing how much I miss everyone's posts.

M: A very lovely friend sent me just the perfect gift. That -- and my beloved Christmas tunes -- lifted my spirts.

MELINDA JUNE: That's where I've gone wrong; I have yet to eggnog this season.

DALE: I'm my own Southern Comfort, buddy.

PINK FLUFFY SLIPPERS: Back at you; I know it's been rough for you, too.

BARISTA BRAT: Virtual little sister, you know me well ... but it was a Barbara Stanwick film!

Ah, but I'm much more familiar with him as Robyn's sidekick.

That 'other' band he's in is nice, but I admit freely that I don't have their back catalogue memorized. :P

At least not yet.

(boy, she's gonna skewer me now...)

I hope work has not interfered with your ability to enjoy The Official Site Of Grant Miller.

I also have had little time for blogging lately. Please don't take my recent lack of commenting as a sign of not caring. I'll keep my promise; don't keep your distance.
