I'll be back

Well contrary to recent rumours I was not away on some exotic island living in the lap of luxury, neither was I off getting drastic plastic done in some eastern european country. The truth of the matter, is in fact much more mundane. Between work commitments, problems with laptops, house-hunting (for a friend) and other things going on I simply haven't had a chance to get near my blog. The fact that my own blog hasn't been updated doesn't overly worry me, however, I do now feel guilty that I have not read my favourite blogs in far too long and now have some serious catching up to do:

  • Has CatGirlSpeaks bought another new dress or two, what's the skinny on RH etc.?
  • What wonders has little Grace Violetta brought into Omani's hectic life recently?
  • How has Paige bounced back from the shitty time she had a little while ago?
  • Is Mr. Doris still as wonderful as ever?
  • How wonderful was Boston for Kev?
  • Which news tidbits has JL dissected and commented upon for us?
  • Has Connor bought a new people carrier?
  • Did Maca bring Tayto, Lyons Teabags and Dennys Rashers back from Ireland?
  • Has Winds settled back into normality after her fantastic trip down under?
  • Who's baby has Kaz been babysitting recently?
  • What in the world has Arse End of Ireland seen recently that has made her blood boil?

Alas I have learned a lesson from this break, that everything you enjoy in life comes with a price tag and blogging for me can enduce guilt if I don't manage to keep up to date with those bloggers I kept in regular contact with until recently! The break has also taught me how I deal with organise my life to certain extent. If I get on with things and keep going I'm good, however, if I put something off, it begins to niggle at me, inducing a feeling of guilt. Then I procrastinate a little longer, putting things off again, allowing tasks to become more arduous and guilt inducing.

So I have eventually taken the bull by the horns and logged on again. I will try to play catch up but have made a decision to take things slowly - I will try not to get my knickers in a twist to catch up with every minutiae from my favourite blogs.

It won't be a people carrier, it'll be a van, not a mini-van, a van, a big ugly, get out of my way or I'll side-swipe ya van.

I'll be driver-driver just like the guy in the Alan Davies sketch.

I remember being at a Sean Hughes gig once and he did a particular good first 15 minutes. He then went on to explain how people regularly come in late to his performances. So he conspired with the audience that when the latecomer arrived, he'd recap for their benefit by giving the punchlines only to his jokes.

Someone duly arrived late and as they made their way to their seat, the tittering had started. When Sean said a personal "Hi" and gave the recap, the place fell about laughing again. The poor man was bewildered and didn't know why all these nonsequitirs were so funny.

So for your benefit, my blog recap is :-
Why Aslan are cool
How some blogs just move you
Why HR managers are so shit
Terror is about breaking the rules
Dev, the FF crook
Paige gets quoted
Cool Commercial Names
Cousin Andy's brill story
General rant about Men
Tabloid media
Constitutional Crusade on Statuory Rape,
Part II of the Radio Guide
Learning Irish

God, I never realised that I'd become so serious. Time for a story about slutty meaningless sex!

You're a good egg. And it's great to have you back. There is noone quite like you and while you've been away that section of the palette hasn't been used.

While you've been away, I've been thinking. I think I need a holiday. I think the west of the Algarve would do me nicely. I think I'll go there tomorrow.

I doubt I'll log on out there.

The Swearing Lady said...

You harlot. I am a lovely, mild mannered woman, not some sort of explosive Cheryl Tweedy-hating misanthropist.

Oh no, hold on. I meant that the other way around. Soz.

maca said...

Going the other direction Swearing Lady so i'll be bringing back some Finnish coffee, decent (i.e. huge) suasages and ... eh ... well that's about all that's worth bringing from Finland.

Winds said...

It's alright. While you were away, my blog crashed and the last six months never happened. Including Australia.

Oh well...

CONOR: If you keep going the way you're going you'll need a CIE bus!
PAIGE: Thanks for the update, I now know exactly which of your posts I want to view first!
OMANI: Thank you, good to be back. I wouldn't log on from the Algarve either!
SWEARING LADY: What can I say except I never particularly liked Cheryl Tweedy either!
MACA: So long as you don't bring bad weather you're welcome home anytime!
WINDS: Saw the new layout - it looks good - hope my blog never crashes as I have no back up for it - not that technical.

Dresses have been bought, shoes have been bought, crippled me and donated to Colleague P, and RH and I are once more on cordial terms. We've not met up since he "outed" my blog, but he is in possession of Duty Free cigarettes for me, so will be seeing him very soon!

maca said...

Sorry Curly, called you "SL" there for a second, mind wasn't switched on.

Don#t worry, there was on bad weather to bring. We've had 25+ degrees for the past month, indeed it was pushing close to 30 degrees for the past week.
Tis nice to come home to cooler weather.
