I'm Back in the Saddle Again

Yes, it's back to the regular grind as of today. Ye Olde Academy is back in full swing.

I'm not sure what I'm in bigger danger of doing: melting, spontaneously combusting, falling into a deep depression and refusing to move, mutating into a violent right-winger, going into a traumatic coma, shaving my hair off and running around screaming, or, worst of all, being stupid enough to try to forgive and forget certain things.

But I'm not allowed to talk about any of it, so forget I said anything. is YOUR life these days?


  • Crumbs, sounds as though I passed my earlier funk on to you via the interweb!

    I have never heard you like this before, Minstrel.
    I think you need a vacation. ;)
    Or a cup of tea. To us Brits a good cuppa cures all the world's ills.

    No seriously, "it will pass, no doubt sooner than it should" (to quote Mr Bennett from Pride & Prejudice).

  • Time to jam on the guitar, baby.

    Actually, a remake of Call of Cthulhu with newer synth and drum sounds and your more experienced guitar fingers could be both therapeutic and selfishly cool to listen to for me. :D

  • If you are going to do anything, mutate into a violent right winger. That way I look like a pacifist.

  • Arrggh.. too bad, not allowed to talk about it.... can whisper secretly though, ;)

  • Watch a Charlie Brown cartoon. He’s so pathetic it always brings me back up.

    Plus that music… it’s just perfect.

  • I vote for shaving your hair off and running around screaming. It's far less dangerous than all those other options and much more entertaining for the rest of us.

    Oh, my life? Thanks for asking. Same.

  • Hello, everyone!

    Well, ma'am, with the way things are going right now, it's hard NOT to be in a funk. It's like, "Summer holidays ended, and suddenly everything went straight to hell..."

    Yes, I do need a vacation, though tea sounds good enough for now.

    (Nuts...I liked "m'lady" better...)


    My horse is bolting through a swamp right now, and I'm almost afraid to slow it down for fear it might sink.


    I hardly remember what you look like anymore. Your new avatar has been a big help.

    Well, without going into too much detail, after riding the shock wave from my blog blunder and trying to figure out how to deal with what it all meant, I came back to work to discover a sudden, catastrophic personnel change had taken place in my department. It has been traumatic for everyone involved. Don't ask me to tell you more.

    For what it's worth, I've decided it's probably best for everyone (especially myself) to go with the "stupid" forgive and forget route. Meanwhile, I'll also make an effort to pull my head out of my ass.

    That's true sometimes, but certain Charlie Brown cartoons tend just to piss me off.

    Speaking of music...

    Of course, it would also get me fired, solving everything in one go (and replacing it with all new, even bigger problems).

    BTW, got the package today. Thanks!

  • Hey, Moody, if it makes you happy, you can call me m'lady even if I go back to Houston!

  • BTW, your presence on the web is very strong. I did a google search a couple different ways and found that several other blogs link to yours, blogs you may not be aware of. Not to worry, all the blogs I checked are friends of yours.

    I will email you some web diagnostic tools so you can see how people arrive at your site.

  • Not too bad, moody..

    but really, u should try this..

    being stupid enough to try to forgive and forget certain things.

  • Awww poor Kebbie. Want me to read you Pokey Little Puppy?

    Don't shave your head. If you become a militant right-winger you'll just fly around in circles. All that ammo would make your right wing too heavy to fly straight. What's wrong with being stupid? To forgive is a mandate of God. Being depressed takes too much time. Hmmmm. How about joining a cult?

    Oh, Radiobats! thing won't let me use my blogger name. This is Bwenna!

  • Life has its seasons, that's true. We just have to take it, step by step. I've got the flu and am just too absorbed in my own's body's stupidity to even be kind to anyone who may be suffering in other ways. Sorry.

  • i think me and you were hit at the same time w/ a funk! i like shaving off all your hair and running around screaming... i've thought about it a few times. told hashim yesterday that i wanted to shave my head.... and i did, indeed, feel like screaming yesterday...

    i hate forgive and forget... too easy.

    i've missed reading your blog and have a LOT to catch up on... back in the saddle again.... (gosh, i couldn't resist)

  • Gee! What a start to a new term. I'd do the forgive-and-forget and start afresh. Remembering the unpleasant events is too taxing. I wouldn't bother, besides staying cool could make people wary enough to have them wondering, or would they?
