Work, work. Baby, baby.

On top of that, a finicky computer with a sketchy wireless connection. To get on the internet, I basically have to recite the alphabet backwards, draw a pentagram in the sand, cross my fingers, make sure I'm not on the wrong side of the house (dividing line is at the staircase), go downstairs and drink a glass of milk, come back upstairs, wait, wait some more, then check the computer and hope I got lucky.

Oddly enough, the same process is also needed at times to feed Baby Boy EC, with the added bonus that BB EC can scream very loudly.

Of course, he is also much cuter than my computer and he can touch his toes. Top that ancient Toshiba 2100 CDS.

Promise of funnier days to come


I looked at the date of my last entry, and it was only eight days ago. Man, it feels like it's been months. I was afraid I was going to end up on Suldog's list of bad bloggers who should be filled with shame.

Since the last time we met, I've had myself one hell of a crappy time, so I haven't felt much like making with the funny haha. Also, I started my new job on Monday, so a lot of my time has been spent learning how to do a lot of old things in a new way. On the plus side, the folks at my new job seem as friendly and easygoing as the coworkers at my last job. On the not quite negative but maybe not wholly positive side, my new job means I am now totally separated from the North Shore, so it does seem like a chapter in my life that was slowly coming to a close has now slammed shut.

Well, I apologize for the lack of laughs, but I promise I will be back soon as I can with more better stuff, possibly even the long-awaited tale of my Cub Scout talent show, where my troop did a sign language version of Barry Manilow's "I Can't Smile Without You." I promise, I am not making that up.
