It's Been a Long Time...

I haven't posted here in quite a while. (I know. Captain Obvious. That's me. Whenever I am not busy moonlighting as Lieutenant Oblivious.)

Well, I have had my reasons. Admittedly the most prevalent of these is that I didn't bloody want to but, well, what are you going to do?

Am I back now? I am honestly not sure yet. You will likely know when I do.

I miss writing and I miss performing. Those two combined is more or less why I am here; you know? I like to do both and, more importantly, I like to do them each for an audience. What does that mean to you? It means that I am a bloody comment whore and I am infinitely more likely to post here regularly if I am getting comments. In other words, say something. Invite your friends and tell them to say something too! I hate feeling like I am talking to myself.

Anyway! I wrote myself that fancy schmancy disclaimer up at the top so that, hopefully, anything I say here won't spill over and effect my employment. I really like the job I have these days and I would prefer not to lose it over some sort of smart-assery comment I make here in a public forum. To go with that I am going to say that I will not be talking about where I work or anything like that here. If you are a friend of mine in real life and you happen to know where I spend my days, please keep it to yourself. If you want to talk or comment about it, send me an email or shoot me a text or something. Just keep it off this page. Break this one rule and I will find you. Then I will probably hurt you. Then I will delete your comment.

A lot has happened in my life since I was last here. I am not going to waste my time or yours with a full, long winded run-down of everything. I will say this: I am enjoying my life and I am still working at bringing about more and more positive change in it.

Apparently I still come across as a cranky yankee bastard. To those who believe that is who I am, bite me. Also, hah! Joke is on you!... Chances are you will never see the punchline.

I am having fun. I am here to entertain and, if I do my job well enough, hopefully I will even inform. Most importantly, I think, maybe I will make you think. Maybe you will make me think. Maybe we can become a huge thinky forum and start raising the national intelligence quotient a little bit. Gods know we need it desperately.


I think I have rambled enough for now. I suppose I could have summed all this up by saying, "I've missed you. I hope you've missed me," but that wouldn't have been nearly as fun. Don't worry. I promise I will be more irreverent and less droning next time.

And so, as is my custom, I shall leave you with a quote to consider:

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
-William Shakespeare-
