Where’ve you been?!
So, first, I want to deeply apologize for being a slacker. I know, I know, You all totally understand, I have a non-electronic life, and, how could you possibly not sympathize, even if you have been tearing up over the thought of a world where I miss not one, but TWO days of posting, and nearly a whole week.
How would we all survive without my amazing food and beer suggestions? (In fact, I’m a little teary just thinking about it now. . .)
Leaving that aside, I wonder, what has happened in the past two weeks that I haven’t had the time to pontificate upon? Hmmmm. . .
Well, Ellen DeGeneres admits that she eats eggs, as long as they’re from her neighbor’s happy backyard chickens. (Apparently it’s spelled “v-egg-an.” Who knew?)
Our Hen House was roundly panned for publicly scolding Ellen for eating said eggs. (Go ahead, tell me about how much you don’t like listening to them every week, without missing a podcast. Ever.)
I found out that Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, NJ, is a vegetarian. (Good thing Ben and Jerry’s doesn’t have any meat in it.)
J.L. Fields, of JL Goes Vegan) moved to Colorado. (Just a month after Colorado legalizes recreational marijuana. . . Coincidence? I think not. . .)
The Blonde and I have smartphones, and are actually figuring out the appropriate way to use them! (I know, I know, its the 21st Century. I just like my flip phone so much. . .)
We went out to Great Sage. . . Again. (and again after that. Don’t judge me.)(BTW, my guest post for them is still on the front page. Just sayin’.)
I’m still craving chili. (In no way news. Just sayin’ again.)
My students are killing me. (I am contractually obligated to end that rant there. And not to say any more. Against my better judgement. . .)
(Wait, when did this become just me whining about my past two weeks?)
Ok, enough not-news, because it really is just a half-step from there to me nerding out. I’ve been missing the time to commit to sitting down in front of my computer to write a worth-while post. I hammered out probably three terrible ones in the past ten days or so, but I figured I wouldn’t subject you to them. I just hit these stretches where I don’t really know what to post about. In the past, I always had a few posts started and could wrap them up neatly just in time for my personally imposed deadline of Sunday morning at 9:00, but this past week, well, not so much. . .
As an apology, I figure, I’ll just debase myself and hope that you laugh at me while I do it. I mean, laughing at me always makes me feel better. I’d also love some feedback on where I should be going with my posts on Sundays. I have a few ideas, but I’m hoping to get opinions from readers before I start making changes. I plan to keep my Wednesdays devoted to beer, unless I toss in the occasional wine or hard liquor day, but for the most part, it will stay beer, and I have no intention of upgrading my Fridays from haiku to any other type of poetry. Haiku are deceptively difficult, and I enjoy writing them (my coworkers say I’m “pithy.” Wait, that wasn’t supposed to be funny. . .)
So really, what I’m looking for is some direction to take my Sunday posts. I have a bunch of recipes up from Sundays, and a few days of discussion about, well, often nothing. Next Sunday I have a product review planned, but nothing special beyond that yet.
So let me know, what would you like to see more of? Food? Recipes? Stories? ‘Guy’ stuff? I’m all ears!
