Stare Into Space

What? You’re still here?

Too long, man.  Too long.

Seriously though.  It has been too long.  In my defence, I’ll simply say that I’ve been busy/lazy.  Only one of these is a half-lie.

It’s the Twitter, you see. The Twitter is taking up my time and, more importantly, taking the tiny kernels of ideas, thoughts, whines that I might have and allowing me to express them in tiny, tiny, 140-character chunks.  They get tweeted and never gestate sufficiently to allow an actual blog post of more that 140 characters.  Don’t hate me. All the cool kids are doing it. I’m not strong enough to go against the crowd.

And, worse still, now that I’m used to thinking in 140-character bursts, I don’t think I can sustain anything longer. It’s like our ADHD society took a giant leap away from any meaningful, significant discourse and instead chose to blurt evertything in staccato bursts instead.

I’m not doing a good job of selling this, am I?

It’s not really like that at all.  The truth is, I really like the Twitter. I like the communication with people I know in real life, people I already know virtually and with some people I’m just getting to know. It’s all good but it’s a get-it or don’t-get-it sort of thing. Some people like it and some don’t. That’s ok. Incidentally, if you get it, or want to try get it, I’m here.

Soon I will post an actual post.  About actual stuff.

Please forgive any grammatical or spelling errors. I’ve been drinking.  Mmmmm, beer.

I mostly sit around all day and drink tea. Occasionally, I write stuff and send it to strangers so they can humiliate me and deride my efforts. Other than the self-harm to dull the shame of failure, it's not a bad life. Like I say, there's tea.
