No, I have not abandoned my beloved blog. I am punishing myself by not prancing around here until I get certain huge writerly things for other people THAT MUST BE DONE GODDAMMIT END MY TORMENT AND GET THEM DONE all done. Two of them are done! Two more to go!
The blog takes more effort than the randomness of Twitter, so I figured de-blogging a bit would help me get THE OTHER THINGS THAT MUST BE DONE done. It's sort of worked! So has the lurking fear that Goonan will get on a plane and come to my house and glare at me sternly while going through my laptop for manuscripts to take away if I don't GET THESE FUCKING THINGS DONE already.
When I do return to my blog -And! I! Will! - will have Stuff that is New And Shiny and some of it Ranty and there will be pictures. I can't wait!
Until then, please enjoy this fabulously hysterical video I did not know existed until two days ago, created by The Mountain Goats, a band I did not know existed until about a year ago and now am on a quest to get everything he/they have ever done. Which, I'm lead to understand, is quite a lot. **
** For those of you who saw In Transit, or perhaps caught me performing a version of it at The Moth, this is the "odd little yelpy guy" I was talking about in the closing story. Seriously, this guy's work is magnificent.
