This is Also Temporary…

Things are a little funky around here at the moment. A few things are going on that I don’t have words for yet. I’m trying to keep it all together here, and for the most part, I think I’m doing okay.

I may be abandoning the blog for a bit… and then again, I may not; I really don’t know just yet because, again, I don’t have words. If a sabbatical is in the making, I doubt it would be for very long anyway… I have plans. And I’m going to want to tell somebody about them. You’re it, Internet.

…and David McMahon wants to know: “Have you ever Googled yourself?”

My answer is, of course, “Of course! All the time – I’m a BLOGGER!”

  1. Well then, spill it! What’s going on? I hope it’s good distractions, not bad or scary ones. Unless they’re Halloween related.

    Les Says: Well, yeah, it is a little scary, unfortunately. I think I’ll wait a bit and see how I want to “spake” it…

  2. Okay, now you’re scaring me – please tell me this is nothing health related? Don’t you dare to scarper off the blog and leave us all hanging, you’ll worry me to death. I hope everything – whatever it is – settles down and pans out alright, I’m sending you a Red Cross parcel on, stuffed full of positive, warm wishes and a packet of love. Let me know when it arrives, okay? (x)

    Les Says: No worries, Carol – barring unforeseen city buses or charging rhinos, I’m in no danger of giving up the ghost yet. Like I say, I have plans! πŸ™‚

    Once things “settle down” as you say (and they will, I’m sure), I’m hoping I’ll be able to explain what’s been going on – it’s a matter more of figuring out how to say it, rather than a privacy issue. Thanks for the parcel – bulging at the seams, too!

  3. I hear you. When I am feeling overwhelmed I like to cocoon in my room. In fact I just did that last night. I told my husband, “I’m going in the cave.”

    I love your answer to googling yourself — Of course! I have too. Nothing comes up on my real name (squeezes out a fake tear) but lots of fun stuff comes up on Cardiogirl πŸ™‚

    Isn’t blogging a little bit like having a secret superhero identity? I was just thinking my real sh!t is so depressing and boring right now. I really don’t even want to discuss it, but Cardiogirl has lots of fun stuff ’cause she’s a superhero and nothing bad happens to superheroes, right? (fingers crossed)

    Les Says: The original reasons for starting the blog (although the “original” blog posts have since been removed) necessitated using my real identity. Luckily, few people actually “know” me anyway, so I can play with my blog persona pretty much at will. That’s almost as good as complete anonimity, I think!

    And I *am* a Super Hero. JimKin invented me!

  4. We will wait you out, Les. You will find the words.

    Les Says:
    Thanks, Denise. I appreciate your patience, as well as your confidence in my wordiness. πŸ™‚

  5. p.s. How fun are those fancy pullquotes! LOVE ’em!

    p.p.s. Not trying to be a backseat designer here or anything, but you could try them in red like your links on the right. That might make them pop a little more, but they are fun in an understated way in gray. Sweet!

    Les Says: That’s a great idea! I’ll try to give that a shot sometime this evening, and see how it looks. Ummm…. I can always use a backseat designer, so thanks. All input welcome. I’d put you on the payroll, if there was a payroll.

  6. Lovely shot, Les,

    Keep me informed about the sabbatical …

    We’ll always be here for you – but you know that.

    Les Says: Thanks, David – I’m all sniffles, now…. πŸ™‚

  7. show me a person who goes on a sabbatical, and I’ll show you someone who stocked the fridge and is going on a naked debauchery weekend bender

    Les Says: There will be no fridges stocked until somebody sends me money (you can send me money if you like – I’m not proud). I can’t promise not to get naked, though. Pants suck.

  8. Oh, no. A sabbatical? Oh, well, I guess it happens to the best of ’em.
    Have I Googled myself? Is the Pope Catholic? Etc.

    Les Says: Hi Rhea – I can’t speak for “the best of ’em”, but my own sabbatical is still a little up in the air… Besides, we all know I couldn’t stay away from the blog for long, regardless.
