Let's Try This Again

You know it's bad when you see your blogosphere disappearance mentioned in the comment boxes of other bloggers. You have shamed me thoroughly. I appreciate your recent comments and e-mails and phone calls. To quote Sally Field … okay, I won’t go there.

I. Am. Back.

I’ve missed reading your blogs, and I’ve missed blogging. I thought I was back … but … well … okay, there’s no great excuse. Life just got in the way.

And that life is quite interesting these days. From moving away from the ‘burbs back to my neighborhood ... to some funny move-related mishaps … to two-point-five great concerts so far this year … to Yin and Yang (my biggest distractions of 2007) … well, I have a lot of blog fodder for the week, and I’ll try my damndest to post every day and get back in the routine. And catch up on your blogs.

This time, kids, the bitch really is back.

I was wondering where you'd been! That picture is a little Blair Witch, by the way.

Johnny Yen and I were talking about you at midnight last night. We were hoping you were okay. It must have been our freezing ass Zen energy from Chicago.

Hope you are well.

Welcome back! We've missed you, and it's good to see you back. Can't wait to hear about your adventures.

Oh, were you gone? Beth, your loyal following awaits.

Glad to see you posting again! My wife (Kim) and I were indeed talking about you yesterday evening, hoping that everything is okay.

Yeah, yeah. I'll believe it when I see it. (Me being a sarcastic ass)

Seriously, I'm glad you're back!

Welcome back!

Damn. I just got your picture printed on 250,000 milk cartons to be distributed throughout the entire Atlanta metropolitan area.

Maybe you'll get some nice blind dates out of it...

;-)

Welcome back.

Oh, shit. I just noticed that you stated you only saw the "first 30 minutes" of a Yo la Tengo show...

That has to be a story.

COASTER PUNCHMAN: I am a little Blair Witch, CP. And full of blog shame for my long absence.

KIM: I'm rather tickled that I was a topic of conversatin in the Yen household. Now I just need to give you something that's worth talking about; keep reading this week.

BUBS: I've missed y'all, too.

DALE: How it breaks my heart that you didn't notice my absence. I'll have to take my blog crush elsewhere, I guess. Where's Haahnster?

JOHNNY YEN: Everything is fabulous these days!

CHRIS: I love your ass best when it's sarcastic, so dish it out. I deserve it. (And enjoy it.)

GRANT MILLER: Thank you, sir. I can't wait to catch up with your blog.

HAAHNSTER: Please circulate them; I still have Wednesdays and Sundays open, so the cartons could help.

HAAHNSTER: And, yes, there's a story to that just-30-minutes-of Yo La Tengo. I may share it; I may just hint at it. But it's Yin's fault.

M: You don't love me anymore?

Yeah, what Coaster said. I'm glad that you are back, but that pic gives me the creeps.

P.S.

Please, drop by my other blog, I know you can come up with some good ones

Lulu and I also had a discussion about your whereabouts. We suspected wild romance took you from us. Hope your stories are as good as the ones we made up for you!

M: I'm the adorable, funny one? The one Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey always flirt with? You know, the one you're jealous of.

WRITE PROCRASTINATOR: It's my shame that's giving you the creeps.

WRITE PROCRASTINATOR: I checked it. I'm thinking ...

TENACIOUS S: To be honest, wild romances did take me away. It's hard to blog when your neck's being nibbled.

D. CHEDWICK BRYANT: Thank you! I'm glad to be back.

BRAT: I've missed you, little sis.
