Has it really been 2 MONTHS?
Yep, yep, (flipping a few calendar pages....) well look at that.... so it has.
For two months I've been "on sabattical".
Er, "on vacation".
Or perhaps simply "on the couch".
No, not on the couch... that's hubby's territory.
I've been "on the laptop".
Yes, it's been pretty quiet here because I've been busy with other things.
But definitely this blog is NOT "moribund" as one commenter asked. (Don't feel bad if you don't know what that means... I had to look it up too):
Definition of MORIBUND
1: being in the state of dying : approaching death
2: being in a state of inactivity or obsolescence
NEVER! Nevernevernever! Temporarily ignored, yes. Dead, no!
What I HAVE been doing is simultaneously getting other projects done whilst feeling utterly guilt-racked about not posting here. I am quite good at giving myself guilt-trips you know... I have honed that skill for many years.
The major project I just finished was properly organizing and cataloging a very dear collection I have had since 2004. What collection you ask? (I know you did, don't deny it). Well, some people may think it's silly, but it's an art collection.
Star Wars art to be more precise.
Yep. Star Wars. My
obsession hobby before blogging overtook my life. If you're a long-time reader, you'll know I am a self-described geek and on a scale of 1 to 10 (ten being Uber-Geek), I am a 20. Or perhaps even approaching 21. I have a whole basement full of Star Wars toys, books, games and anything else Mr. Lucas could slap a Star Wars sticker on.
Back in 2004 the Star Wars Fan Club sent all us geeks, er "fans" original cartoon cels and drawings from the 1985/86 Ewoks Saturday morning cartoon series. Since then, I've collected hundreds of cels but sadly had them just shoved away without the proper care they deserve. So I finally got off my butt and properly sorted, photographed and archived the artwork into scrapbook binders for safe keeping. And then I built a brand new website to share it with all the other Uber-Geeks HERE.
Now that it's done, I can hopefully balance my "extra" (Ha! Like I have "extra") time amongst all my other interests.
Problem is, I have way too many "other interests". I'll just have to do a bit here, a bit there and make sure the guilt monster doesn't keep me away for such a long time ever again.
So, as Mark Twain once said "The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated".
Moribund my @$$.
