You know you've been away too long when you walk into a party and you begin to hear shrieks of "He's ALIVE!" and "no way, NO WAY!" coming out of your fellow partygoers. I rolled into eclecticavatar's party fashionably late (I mean really, have you known me to be on time for anything) and got a reaction I was a little unprepared for. But I have been unconnected for longer than I realized.
I was watching World Cup highlights when I got an email update about her party. I've been something of a hermit (in some respects) as of late but I mean...the girl lives right up the road. I was exhausted from a long day of getting megalugz's car fixed but I looked at who was going to be there (a fine cast of characters) and grabbed the 12 pack of Narragansett out of my fridge. I kind of feel like I've been in a deep freeze and I don't know why. It seems like time has just flown by and I can't seem to figure out where it's gone.
Although apparently some of you have kept my name in circulation, and for that I thank you. I need to make a concerted effort to get out and be more social (now who would have ever thought I'd need to say THAT?). Honestly I can't explain where I've been, it hasn't been anything special. There's been the usual travails and trials with the Opposite Sex and you'll probably hear about them (if you missed Renee's party). I've gotten a little older and in a very short period of time (September) I'll be older still. I've really just been in a rut, spinning my wheels. What's that Billy Bragg song? Waiting for the Great Leap Forward.
I need to stop waiting and get out and do things.
I'll do a more in depth post later. In the meantime enjoy some music. You can download it as well if you like any of it. LOOK I'M ALL TECH SAVVY 'N SHIT.
