Apologies for Blog Neglect
I never thought the day would come where I would write one of those incredibly common blog posts about how I haven’t written a blog post in awhile, but here it is. The day has come. For that, I apologize. Since I gave up on writing the blog on a daily basis my updates have been rather sporadic. Things have been pretty busy lately though.
There were a few layoffs at work a couple weeks ago. This happened about the same time last year and it was just as shocking then as it is now. Last time me and the members of my department got out unscathed, but this time we weren’t as lucky. My friend and partner in nerdom, Darryll was let go. This was rather bittersweet. On the one hand I’m glad that I survived this round of layoffs, but on the other, someone whom I considered a friend and a great individual is no longer employed. He was a total gentleman about the whole thing, but it didn’t make it any easier to swallow.
Of course, with Darryll gone his responsibilities needed to be split up amongst the group. Regardless of what everyone might think or intend to do, the vast majority of those will fall on my shoulders. I know that everyone’s saying that I should be thankful to have a job right now and I am, but it doesn’t make it any less of a pain in the ass. I’m taking it in stride though, seeing it as an opportunity to add a few things to my ever growing repertoire of office know-how.
As a result of all this, I’ve just been crazy busy with work. I’ve got at least 3 blog posts written out in my head that I haven’t been able to squeeze out and throw up here. (I hope I just gave you a delightful mental image of words flowing out of every hole in my face and splattering on the computer screen. If I didn’t before, I probably just did.) I haven’t had a chance to type anything up at work and by the time I get home I just want to relax and not even look at a computer. My Macbook has been pretty dormant recently too. I really need to get my ass in gear and do this film thing or I’m going to start having regrets.
I’ll post some more this weekend, but I’m still alive and I’m doing more than watching Dollhouse every week. I’ve been very active on Twitter though so I hope that sort of makes up for it.
Oh, and here’s a picture I asked Monica to take of me in my 1970s-esque tight shirt. I popped the collar and felt very suave.
