It's been a while, unless you count my horrid entry for hottest 100. I kind of, a little bit, broke my computer. Right now, for the first time in months I am sitting at a desk that is not my cubical, working on a computer that I can happily type away at to my heart's content.
There's a real screen so I can edit the post (I won't, but the option's there). If I coax them enough maybe one of the three cats I currently live with may even sit on my feet, then it'd be the perfect writing set up. On that subtle segue, I have missed writing. I'm not particularly good at it, but I can write when I put my heart to it. I also miss music. Given work/life commitments I have a lot less time to follow music blogs (my "music" folder on feedly is at >10k unread items) so honestly, I don't know what's going on. I've just been listening to my enormous back catalog of music.
Now, commitment. I dusted off my ipod the other day and apologized to it. A year ago if you told me I would go out of the house without it regularly, I'd slap you. I actually had trouble finding it last week. Since then I've promised to treat it better. Fresh music every week, worn out headphones, long walks in the park, lying in bed awake when it isn't near. With this, I would also like to write a whole lot more. Not just about music, but also about magical cards (I'll share a URL on the right when I figure out what to name that) which I have also reconnected with. Don't worry, I'll try not to mash the two together too much.
So, if you actually read this, and I haven't posted anything a week from now, I will buy you a pint or pizza. Legit, you email me, or facebook me, or call me, whatever. Either way, I owe you a pint or pizza. I have until 7pm on the 16th. Not just that, but one a day until I fix it.
Until then, listen to this
