I'M NOT DEAD YET

I could go a few different ways with this update. I could explain to you all why I haven't been posting, with various excuses such as "graduate school" and "just haven't felt like it," et cetera. I could pretend like nothing's happened and jump into blogging again and hope you all welcome me with open arms and account numbers to Swiss or Bahamian bank portfolios. I could just say fuck it and go take a nap.


First off, I have a boyfriend. You can blame much of my not-being-on-the-internetness on him. We've been dating since Halloween and it's been wonderful. I think he looks startled because I'm ninja-grabbing his ass.



Secondly, I've taken up knitting. I don't have a photo of me knitting, so you'll have to make do with this shot of Russell Crowe exploring the fiber arts instead. I find it to be very cathartic. Some people yoga, I knit. We'll both be relaxed at the end of our sessions...but I'll have a scarf. Right now I'm knitting hats for my friends who are participating in the Cleveland St. Baldrick's shaving event to benefit children with cancer. While I won't be shaving my pate, I've gladly volunteered to knit snug caps for any of my friends that do participate. If you're interested in pledging to Maggie, Adam, or Faith, go here or here or here (or to all three places!) and help make a difference for kids with cancer through your generosity.



I've seen Justin puttering about. I knitted him a hat! Maybe he'll post pictures of it.

The Boy gave me a cold for Valentine's Day, so I'm going to sign off and take a nap.

I had some really witty comments to post on the previous post, but then I read a new post, and I forgot what I was going to say.

Usually, I wouldn't ever comment on someone else's wordification, but it did occur to me that maybe you could drop the word yet, when referring to death. You make it sound so inevitable.

I'm a writer, baby. Inevitable is my middle name.

It's actually Marie, but Inevitable would be a great middle name, wouldn't it?

I would like to apologise to everyone for physically keeping Christina from posting, After I took away her computer I figured she'd be done with this whole internet thing but somehow she managed to get online without my knowledge, rest assured those responsible have been sacked.

I was going to write a long comment but the pain caused by my laptop not having a wrist rest, makes that impossible.

Apologies and Regards,
