Not this "No Show" Malarkey Again
Oh, but yes. I genuinely am sorry, but I also am genuinely a husk.
It's just all getting to me, and I need to take yet more time to lie face-down on the floor doing nothing.
The "it" that is getting to me is made of worrying helplessly about ill relatives, being a civil-service boss during end-stage capitalism and its attendant looting and burning of civil services, and just surviving on planet Earth in the year 2023 as a queer descendant of Jewish heritage, as popular sentiment tilts heavily toward rounding up people like me and sending us to be made into fertilizer or smoke.
It's a lot, isn't it? I just... I just. That's it really.
Other people still make things though
In the meantime, I thought I would suggest a writer whose writing I like, and maybe you will too.
His name is Daniel Lavery, and he writes a blog called The Chatner. I guffaw at his style and the many little lurching comedy traps his sentences scatter in a reader's path.
Here is one of my favorite recent The Chatners.
I will try to be back on air next week
I am going to chill out and try to recharge so we can have nice times on the internet next Friday.
The week after that, I am on VACATION from my dayjob, which will hopefully let me get the garden planted AND get ready for REVENGE OF THE FRIK on May 5th 2023!
