No, not that one time with your parents' car.
I mean metaphorically. I'm having one of those experiences this week. I've hit an Internet wall, just as many of you have. Through a series of busy nights, hectic days, travel-filled weekends and dodging overzealous holiday shoppers like Mario bouncing around Bowser, I haven't had much time to do any blogging this week. Read them, write them, laugh at them, light them on fire, whatever.
I feel weird for feeling ashamed at this, like not putting spare change in the Salvation Army kettle when the dude is ringing the bell with vigor in your direction. There's no obligation, but you feel like you're spitting on baby Jesus if you don't at least throw a Sacagawea dollar in or something.
Because I have so much fun writing for this blog and reading your comments in which you question my sexuality, sanity and ability to use proper grammar, I'll get over the proverbial hump on this, probably by early next week.
That's a welcome change from my past behavior. I am normally the king of "get passionate about something for a couple months and then quit abruptly." I have hobby ADD.
Here's a (UPDATED!) list of things in my life I have, at some point, taken an interest in only to suddenly and inexplicably abandon after a short time like Julie Roberts' fiances in "Runaway Bride":
- Playing the piano
- Richard Gere (No, wait, that was just Julia)
- Eating healthy
- The National Hockey League
- The Bible
- The Bible again, after getting tired of reading about begatting in Numbers and Deuteronomy
- The Bible a third time, but only the New Testament after Romans left me feeling like I've sinned in every way possible
- Car maintenance
- Learning Spanish
- Going to graduate school
- Feeling guilt at eating an entire container of Keebler ELF Fudge cookies
- Celebrating the real meaning behind Christmas
- Celebrating the real meaning behind Easter
- Crystal meth (No, wait. That was Crystal Light iced tea.)
- Staying in touch with people
- Writing music
- Reading Les Miserables
- Reading, period
- Recycling more
I'll try to be better next week. I really will.
