The Stars Are Almost Right...

...for me to start posting again regularly. What have I been doing? Oh, nothing much...hanging out, laying back, drinking rum, and watching the economy and auto companies spasm under the weight of money that has appeared miraculously from thin air that will never get paid back while pundits debate the merits of Latina judges and some crazy guy figures God will be cool with him shooting someone in church as long as that someone is a sinner. It's been entertaining.

In reality work/life has been coming at me quite hard and fast these last several weeks - I've barely had time to notice the above - and I still have seven more very fast-paced weeks ahead before I roll out of here. And THEN I will be laying back for a week on da' beach before reporting to my next duty. It turns out my previous prediction was incorrect - I won't be heading on my Rudyard Kipling adventure straight away but instead will be going back into an academic environment for ten months. THEN I will most likely head to "The Sandbox".

Oh...and I just got burnt out. When it stops being fun, you just need to stop doing it for a bit.

I should be able to start posting here and there in the coming weeks, and once I'm a stoo-dent again in August I should be able to pick things up some more. Which is good because I have some catching up to do - Splotchy has a new story virus that is incubating in my list of draft posts, and nunly has tagged me to post some of my favorite things. Plus, I've lined up a whole bunch of shit I have yet to conceive.

Should be fun. Stay tuned.

Yay! You're back!

I know what you mean by burnout, it happens to me about once every couple of months. I planned on taking just one day off last week and it lasted a lot longer.

Glad your back and hope you stick around for awhile.

Oh don't worry, once you're swamped with the book larnin', you'll be so sick of it that you'll be dying to waste time on the internets with the rest of us slackers.

Dude, if I remember my Kipling correctly remember to keep the last bullet for yourself as you have fun in the far distant lands taking up the latest "white man's burden. Better yet keep your head low and a couple of claymores and an AT4 handy.

I really didn't like that guy very much and his work soured for me even more when I encountered a very strange fellow that worshiped the man and somehow felt he was twenty-something in line for the English throne. I am completely serious! Making matters worse that guy was in one of my National Guard units.

Correction! The last bullet crap I wrote appears to be for Custer. Didn't like him much either.

Nunly - yeah...I'm still burnt out nine days later. But I might write anyway.

Randal - there's a saying: it's only a lot of reading if you do it!

BB - when I keep Kipling in context, understanding the times he wrote in and not judging by today's standards, I find much of value in his writing (i.e. "If"). But blind worship of anyone is a bad idea. Custer was a fucktard.
