Dear Blog,
Have I killed you yet?

You're only 4 years old. Too young to die. Wait...do I detect a weak and thready pulse? Maybe there's still some life here.
----
I didn't mean to do it. It's just that it's hard to post when you have so many other things that you should be getting done. I don't like hearing you didn't do blah blah blah but you found time to post, even though that's probably always been the case to some degree. It just seems like lately there's been more on the list and it's not just me being affected by my lapses.

So, I apologize for all my neglectful behavior; for not responding to comments and e-mails and memes (which I will do, I promise), for not commenting on your blogs (even though I do read them still), and for any other conscious and unconscious transgressions I may have committed.

I'm going to try to do some year-end house cleaning and get things caught up, just in case anyone is still out there. (At the very least, I know I can always count on Richard!) I have countless drafts and I may just go ahead and post them in their unfinished form and in their proper chronological place. Maybe. I don't know. You know how it is with me, right? Right?

I haven't been doing the meme responses, video contests, or any thing like that in a while. That's where I've decided to draw the line, because it takes too much time. So you're not alone in struggling to balance.

Happy New Year!

You can always count on me hun Though I've been a bit irresponsible myself. I will make a new years commitment to you to pick my blog back up off the floor.

I hope everything goes well for you and your family in this new and wonderful year.May the rebirth of a government for the people bring renaissance to New Orleans and your Blog.

Hello all you lovely people. Thanks for pounding my blog-chest with your comments.

I've decided that any catching up I have to do on 2008 will have to be come in spasms of randomness because just the though of crafting any kind of comprehensive, cogent retrospective is frying my circuits.

I'll do the two memes I was long ago tagged for because they're not too demanding and will ease me back into posting, maybe.

And Richard, picking your blog up off the floor??? Remember all those years when you were posting 5 per day on EE? I think you've covered any lapses for the next few years!

Oh, BTW, Leigh, that Hostiledays video that you were loath to post was definitely a prize winner. Hella funny!

Your health is so important you should not risk it by taking chances. Go to the Gold’s gyms in College Station and have an expert show you how to take care of yourself physically.

Hi there,

I just wanted to tell you about my book which has just come out Finn McCool's Football Club - The Birth, Death, and Resurrection of a Pub Soccer Team in the City of the Dead.

It deals with an Irish bar in Mid-City and the lives of the regulars before, during, and after Katrina.

As someone who blogs on life in New Orleans, I thought you may be interested in how a "foreign" local interprets what goes on in the city.

Last week the Times Picayune carried an article on the book:

Thanks for your time!

No longer do you think people depend upon what you say. No longer do you feel like if you don't post, the world will come to an end. No longer do you feel need the blog venue for self-esteem. No longer do you feel the need to post some crap that is already available on line, on TV or in print and done by a professional. No longer do you a blog to discuss crap like a bunch of old farts sharing their thoughts while drinking beer at some 9th Ward corner bar.

You my dear have realized that you have a life. Congratulations!
