Hi


I think I'm back. My body is back anyway, happily getting reacquainted with my little desk in the kitchen of the bungalow. It's possible I've left a few pieces of my brain strewn across the Bay Bridge. And in the parking lot of the Emeryville Denny's. (Which is a movie unto itself on a Saturday night, let me tell you.)

Anyhoo, I missed you guys. My plans for recovery/reemergence are as follows:

1. Bloggety blog blog blogging.

2. Blog stalking. (Yeah YOU.)

3. Doing laundry laundry and more laundry. This may not seem like an important part of the cure, but a) all our clothes are dirty and b) I find doing laundry strangely theraputic. I think I'm still high on having my own washing machine.

4. Drinking whiskey and watching the new True Blood.

5. Tweeting publicly again. I love YOU GUYS. I want you with me always so I can talk to you, say, when H-town gets wrapped up in a wildly boring cell conversation in the car, or I'm standing in the dressing room at Crossroads and I need style advice asap. It's only when the desperate self-promoters/assy wedding planners/porn spammers (it's a fine line) descend that I want to scratch my face off.

I have much suckier things I need to take care of, like replacing the rusted-out exhaust pipe on Blue, my beloved Volvo station wagon, and finally f*cking doing our taxes. But what's another day or two?

  6. Dude, I love doing laundry. It's so soothing to look at all of your clothes, piece by piece. It's a guilty pleasure to revel in materialism.

  7. Welcome back! I think laundry is soothing, if you have your own machine. Schlepping the basket up and down the stairs to the dingy laundry room is what kills me.

    And, the new True Blood is awesome. Enjoy.

  10. daagh! i JUST discovered your kickass blog (literally, like 20 minutes ago) and now i'm late to work because i can't stop reading it.

    glad you're back too (even though i never knew you were gone) -- i was so bummed that this awesome blog had come to an end before i'd even started following. i'm adding you to my google reader, yay!
