I know that the recent swarm of political posts has been… depressingly sad. As if y’all don’t know what I think about the bailouts and the stimulus plan.
If there’s anything worse than the political rant, it’s the never-ending political rant that never changes. And if there’s anything worse than that, it’s Rush Limbaugh.
And if there’s anything worse than that it’s Al Franken, who figured out that the only way to become a bigger ass than Limbaugh was to become a U.S. Senator. Touché Mr. Franken, touché. Anyway, I regress….
I want to scale back the political whining blogging and try to focus on more constructive, creative things… like twitter and facebook! And there’s the super-secret project that I neglected last week and I missed a self-imposed deadline, which stinks. And there’s my not-quite-so-secret project that I’ve neglected for months now and is beginning to haunt my dreams… but I tease.
And I tease badly. The super-secret project is a website, and no, I won’t tell you what it is, but it’s up and nobody’s seen it yet. If and when it gets rolling I’ll unwrap it. For now, I want it to build it’s audience slowly…. (slower than this? You ask. Yes. Slower than this.) The not-quite-so-secret project is a writing project that I’ll put up here eventually.
The point (and there is one, I promise) is that I’ve been so consumed by whining blogging about politics and the economy that I’ve let other projects that actually make me happier sit unattended and that’s… well, that’s just plain silly.
I’ll still put up the odd post or four occasionally, but I’m going to make a concerted effort to keep things lighter here for a while.
So… now. Ahm…. about those…
Here’s a funny cartoon from xkcd!
I’m also going to put up some recipe/food stuff and maybe some more lists…. I like lists.
And, I’m going to put up a story that I’ve been working on for a while. That’s coming tomorrow. The story is “Snowed In” and I’ll put it up in installments. Probably one installment per week….
Nationalizing the banks would slow economic growth and keep vital capital shackled to inefficient enterprises at just the time that we need to liberate… ack… [cough]… [sputter]…
Ok, ok. I think I’m OK now. I think that was the last of it.
