Resourceful Ninja Secretary

After having kept this blog as long as I have, I never thought I would be typing this. But following Sanam and Dina, both of whom let work stress squelch their love for regular blogging, I've decided to return the Back of the Cereal Box to the kitchen cupboard, at least for a bit. Funny how editing everybody else's verbal output has only motivated me to write less, but the thought of now spending my free time glued to a computer and contributing to the din that is the world of online writing passes through my brain about as pleasantly as an emory board thrown at high speed through one ear and out the other.

This URL may be quiet for a few days or weeks or possibly even longer, depending on how long it takes me to unwind and devise a plan to balance my pleasure writing with what I have to do at the paper. Besides, readership has been way down lately, so whatever I've been doing lately doesn't cut the mustard.

Sit tight then, you handful of loyal readers who have stayed with me. I will be back. In the meantime, I'm leaving you this baby duck. Play with him.

  2. Noooooooooooooooo - I demand this not be true. Just because I'm a useless piece of shit does not mean you should follow in my footsteps of shittiness. I also demand more ducklings. And maybe some sort of a lemony pastry.

    ps - you have the longest word verification in the history of ever. I have already fucked it up twice.

  5. Hmm. Leaving us, are you? I merely wanted to add to your list of word followers (hitty pitty) with one that you missed: Argle Bargle.

    let that be a lesson to you.

  8. What would it take for you to add the one.org banner to your blog to support charity? I have added it to my own and would love to see other bloggers amplify the need to stomp out poverty.

    If the activism irritates you then I understand...
