Wow, long time no blog, right? I’ve been meaning to get a post up here but you know how life gets in the way. Life, work, and the giant bunny head that hovers over me, in the night.
It says just one word, over and over, then I wake in the early pale blue light just before dawn, tasting Cadbury Cream and blood.
What is this. What is this.
Sometimes the darkness threatens to envelop and remove, leaving only a white petal strewn trail of blood and a voice echoing, off among the blooming trees, “Hoppin’ down the bunny trail, hippity-hoppity…”
Not long ago my father Bob, who is 78, had surgery for bladder cancer. Turns out he still has cancer. He will soon undergo radiation treatment, most likely at Vanderbilt. Good thoughts from anyone who reads this are greatly appreciated. I don’t know if I believe in prayer, but I do believe in collective good will. My old man could use some.
Wow, sorry I haven’t updated more often! Things have just been nutty around here, and my attention’s been scattered. First a mile-wide asteroid destroyed the closest nearby city, killing over 1 million and driving this hemisphere into a nuclear winter! Then I had a pretty bad hangnail. Also internet service is spotty. Anyway, don’t worry guys, totally updating more soon!
Hey guys, sorry I haven’t updated in a while! Things have been crazy. First, I discovered I have a vestigial parasitic twin. I named him Rupert of the Ages, and he gradually took control of my mind, beginning with my base motor functions. Then he developed a form of telekinesis and began randomly murdering loud neighbors in unsettling ways. I got him to stop, but he pouted and threw tantrums by setting random fires in neighboring restrooms. We called it the Burned Junk Tour ’15! LOL. Anyways, I had a special form of neurosurgery that may have cut Rupert from his comfy spot in my corpus callosum, so now I’m in the process of recovering my basic motor skills! I’ll be back to regular blog posts and feeding myself with actual utensils real soon!
As I review this blog and what I’ve already posted here, I am a little confounded as to why I stopped posting. The original intent I had for this space–even the name struck me as just right, at the time–was for me to finally merge all my blogging impulses (news, crime, fitness, humor, weirdness) in a way that made sense. I was on my way to doing that here. Then I stopped.
I can only blame major mood disorders–chiefly depression–and ADHD. Perhaps especially the last.
And this post is a bit more navel-gazing, but it is in keeping with an effort I’m making to write more and about what’s really going on in my head.
When I stopped using this space. I’m the moodiest blogger ever, I guess. But I realized tonight that for what I wanted to do it was ideal and it was silly to leave it sitting here. So fuck it, Huffwire is back up and running.
