The Bush Administration Gave Me An Idea

The Super Secret Surprise Hiatus was supposed to start July 1st. But then I thought 'hey, why don't I fool and confuse those bastards out there in internet webland and start my supersecret hiatus early?'

(By the way, what's a hiatus, exactly? In blogland, that is. How long do you get to fuck around and ignore your blog and still keep your friends...sort of?)

But then I realized that like fooling the insurgents but then leaving thousands upon thousands of American troops you won't be fooled when I start my hiatus early but then post all the time.

But you aren't bastards, anyway. It's those other people I'm trying to fool.

So I'm not going to do that. I'm not going to post all the time even though I'm on hiatus.

And hooray! I don't have to finish that story "Randy Visits a Prostitute" that I wrote a few years ago and never finished except sort of in my head.

Until I come back from hiatus, that is.

Except there's this question that I was going to ask you that but I forgot what it was and I can't really go on hiatus until I remember what it is and ask you. I can't for the life of me remember what it was but I think it might be really stupid.

So I'll be back but only to say a few things and then I'll leave but only for an unspecified period of time but don't de-link me because I'm addicted to blogging and can't stop even if I wanted to. My hiatus is only to save my career and not a permanent thing. Once my career dies I'll have plenty of time to blog.

This long leave taking with the promise of a sort of a return reminds me of those times at parties where you say goodbye to someone and hug them and make a big deal and then somehow they got distracted and didn't leave and they end up standing in front of you again. And you are faced with the question: Hug again? Say goodbye again? Although you already did? And I always answer this in the affirmative. I'm a two-time hugger.

If you like them enough to hug them once you should like them enough to hug them twice.

But then when it happens a third time...well, that really sucks.
