Apologies Up Front

So as somebody out there may have noticed, it has been a while since I last updated. You know how it goes – precious moments away from the computer turning into hours, then days, weeks, and so on. This unfortunate spiral managed to suck me in, a few weeks back when I could legitimately claim to have been really busy.

But sadly my blog turmoil did not end there. At long last, I finally made back to the web, surfing as I had never surfed before. But even with all this time in front of the screen, I could not post. Why? I had nothing to say…and I felt like after such an absence I had better come back with something good. Didofoot reassured me that it wasn’t necessary, and that my fears of a bad post were unfounded. Still, my lack of creative energy pervaded and nothing happened.

It wasn’t until Monday that Gene gave me the official nerd-term for people like me: Lurker. I lurk around the internet, reading your blogs and offering nothing in return. And, as much as I enjoy the mental image the term conjures up for me, I realized I don’t want to lurk forever.

So what if I don’t have witty repartee, provocative accounts of my nightly adventures, or even creative and well-written lies to fill your heads with. I am not a quitter, damn it, and I am going to stick with this blog thing if it kills you!

I’ve already accepted that this post is about as interesting as a bologna sandwich, but at least it’s here, and your reading it, and maybe I won’t be so silly about posting again. Maybe indeed.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. And the update of a weblog begins with a single post, although it would be a lot better if you followed up with a hard-hitting expose of homoeroticism in Ultimate Fighting, or a treatise on body piercing and the witnessing of raw, vein-popping pain.

i once had a pin that proudly proclaimed, "just lurking" but i'm glad you're back to posting because i need more things to read. keep it up!

Lesbian sex also a damn fine idea, whether in physical or just weblog form.
