Excuses, Excuses

I’m tired and busy.

It’s funny how all of my friends that have blogs have at one time or another blogged about how sorry they are that they haven’t blogged recently. You feel like you owe your readers something fairly frequently (even though I know I only have two readers and they only read my blog because otherwise they feel guilty when I ask them every time I see them whether they’ve read the new funny thing I wrote. I didn’t call it megolomaniac for nothin’).

Well, I’m tired. And it’s caused me to be a little out of it. I was totally convinced today was Friday, which is particularly strange because I didn’t really go to the office on Tuesday, so you’d think I would be confused in the opposite direction. I was so disoriented, in fact, that today when I left the office and my friend Nick said goodbye to me, I responded with, “Have a good weekend!” Nick looked at me, confused, “Are you not coming in tomorrow?” To which I responded, “Crap! I have to come to work tomorrow!”

I’m also crazy busy. So busy, in fact, that the man who lives in my apartment complex whose name I don’t even know because I always just mentally identify him as the guy with an awesome Black Lab and a strange limp asked me today where I’d been. I replied that I was just coming in from reading my book in the sun. He laughed and said, “No, like, where have you been RECENTLY? I used to see you all the time and now it’s been forever.” I don’t even know this man and he noticed I’ve been busy.

I’ve been so busy that every time I look at my hands I think about how I really need to cut my fingernails but I haven’t been able to. (I almost did it tonight when we had people over, but I thought that would be really gross. I’m not sure, though, because my gross-meter doesn’t even blink when I lick spilled, melted ice cream off a table that isn’t mine). I’ve been so busy that I haven’t even had time to listen to the new Coldplay CD I bought on Tuesday (more details and opinions coming soon). I’ve been so busy, in fact, that I haven’t even had time to update my two reluctant but diligent readers on my fantastic and highly entertaining trip to Idaho.

So I’m sorry. I’ll try to get better.

  1. I can’t say strongly enough how disappointed I am that you are in possession of the new Coldplay CD.

    I can’t even *believe* that you’re actually planning to listen to it. And post about having listened to it!

    Appalled. And a little nauseated. But mostly incredulous.

    I mean, I *know* you listen to everything under the sun. And I know that I can be a bit of a music fascist. But COLDPLAY!? Seriously!?

    You know how I know you’re gay?

  2. The Sox Fan

    You realize that in writing a blog about not being able to write a blog you completely contradicted yourself?

    Probably should have just written one. I’m just saying.

    ps the coldplay comments are funny.
