An apology for absence AKA a list of excuses
Some good news: I have a new job. Sometimes I like doing it.
The flip side: I am drowning in work like I've never drowned in work before and can't keep up with reading your blogs, even though I need the laugh like I've never needed laughs before.
Some good news: I have had a couple of recent opportunities to perform some poetry and more to come.
The flip side: That means I have to write fresh stuff.
Some good news: I like writing fresh stuff. It's well fun.
The flip side: I don't have time to write blog posts about wrapping babies in foil or in dead cats.
The good news: You don't have to read my posts about wrapping babies in foil or dead cats.
The flip side: You may be as sick in the head as I am and therefore wanting to.
Some good news: I have found out how to use Twitter (in a very basic fashion)
The flip side: I have found out that Twitter isn't just a 'drop-in-once-a-week' kind of deal, like an acquaintance with whom one has tea politely then goes off again for ages. Twitter wants a full-on relationship with snogging and everything.
Some good news: I am getting much better at marking work and planning lessons than I used to be.
The flip side: It still takes hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours.
Some good news: The days have 24 whole hours in them.
The flip side: If you don't sleep for at least some of those hours, you look like you DID drown.
