Miss Me?

I have been awol for a few reasons.

1. Can't seem to find the time to write on the weekends, what with all my heavy socializing, reading of library books, cat chasing, looking at my new haircut from every angle in the mirror, and Solitaire playing.

2. Was away at a work retreat in Atlantic City for two days. I felt flattered to be included, but also kind of unequipped to add anything of substance, given my semi-newness at the University. That said, I'm also discovering that I know more about development and Institutional Advancement than I thought I did.

They published my newest piece in Maven, called "Two Boys for the Price of One." I'm slightly surprised that they published it as I wrote it, especially since I used the word "fuck" (though they did amend it to read "f**k" which could mean "fork" or "folk" or "funk" or "fink" or "fluk") I'm still in contact with one of the boys in said article, and one might wonder if I'm just a little bit worried that he will be offended to learn the actual details of the situation, but I'm not because (a). we've decided to just be friends (possibly friends with benefits); (b). I don't know if he even ever reads my blog; (c). the whole situation happened awhile ago; (d). I can always claim that it's simply fiction (e). he likely wouldn't care anyway, which is why we're just friends wb (maybe). In any case, I like the piece.

I can't tell you how happy I am that John McCaine Mutiny has chosen Sara Palintologist as his VP. I couldn't think of a less qualified, more hypocritical, and ridiculous partner for JMM, unless he were to have decided to enlist the support of Charles Bronson (he and Sara aren't all that different).

Um, heck yes! Of course, 9 am is a little early for me to be driving my ass down to Philly. Might need a place to crash the night before...

You can stay with me. I have an extra bedroom and/or a fold out couch. As long as you don't mind the cats...
