All right, you denizens, you. Let us lay the rumors to rest.
First of all, my death, as Twain said, took place on a raft in the Mississippi. I was secretly shipwrecked on a desert island with Huck and Joe, but we decided to attend our own funeral, so here I am again.
I am not abandoning the blog. I am, however, overworked and underpaid, and trying very hard to pay as much attention to new clients as I need to in order to keep them. I’m also dealing with some personal crises, all of which conspires to leave me, at day’s end, in desperate need of a martini and a couple of harem girls, and (more to the point) in no mood to write.
I am not any of the following: sick, depressed, lost in the woods, worked into a death coma, entertaining Elvis and Bigfoot in my basement, or withholding my wisdom from all of you in order to keep it to myself. Truth be told, I’m not feeling very wise or funny lately, and this makes me not want to blog. Because the number one rule is what, people? Chorus it with me like the crowd at a Guns and Roses concert.
“Don’t be boring.”
That’s right. And there is nothing more boring than bemoaning my inability to write. Thusly the silence.
The Money Talks will continue, I swear, as soon as I get my head on straight. I realize most blogs fall apart at the three month mark, but this is like saying most marriages fall apart at the seven year mark. What it really means is that this is a damned difficult period, and dedicated folks will shove through. Which is what, more or less, I’m doing. Shoving through. You’re just not seeing this bit, because I can only write, “I’m stressed and tired and don’t feel like writing” so many times before I run out of monkey jokes that can be made in relation to that statement.
The website is due up tomorrow. I shall come around and persuade everyone to go say nice things about it. Or not-nice things. Whichever. We have reached a realm in which we can no longer be particular.
Love to you all, and thanks for your concern, truly. I’ll be up and running as soon as I can, I swear.
