Oh! It’s raining! Which has nothing to do with this post.
You may wonder why, after a break of over 2 years, I have decided to start writing here again, The truth is, I forgot about this blog.
Oh bother, it’s stopped. Crazy Charlotte weather.
Who even reminded me I had this blog was a new person at work who said she was reading some of my work online–which I thought meant she had stumbled on a few poems. But no, she had found my rant about prezi. I must have looked at her blankly when she said, “You know, your blog?” And here I’m thinking tumblr, which is where I have (more frequently) written things. Because I was tired of people stalking me at this blog. (And yes, they were stalking me. I mean, not like anything I put in this blog was particularly private–for heaven’s sake, my name in full blazing glory is on it–but still, a couple of people were reading it who I’d rather see be swallowed by a monsoon and drowned at sea than know Word One about me.) So I kind of quit. And then I forgot about it. And started writing in tumblr.
So, you’re asking yourself, why now? And aren’t the stalkers still stalking?
The answer to the first one is, I don’t know. Except that it’s pretty boring watching my nephew because I’m not really watching him because he’s holed up in his room holding a very dramatic conversation with himself, or singing Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” (and by the way, is that Lou Diamond Phillips watching a plushie fight-to-the-death in their video? WTF?), or singing operatic nonsense to the Mario Brother’s theme. If I was in his room watching, I might be extremely entertained. But as I am out here in the living room contemplating the meaning of nothing in particular, I thought it might be amusing to write a few lines in this sad ol’ unloved blog, for old time’s sake.
The answer to the second question is, so what? Let them find out the huge secret that I’m babysitting this weekend. Oh horrors! How can they use it against me??? Oh! I am wringing my hands in worry just thinking about it!
We’ll see how long I keep it up. I’ll probably quit when I get back to my regular routine… you know, like tomorrow.
