May 3

Thank you guys, for all the birthday wishes yesterday. Also, thank you for not responding to my whiny post with "Awwww, poor puppy!" because that's what 90% of people did in the Real World, and those people all suck.

NEVER MIND THE DAMN DOG MY HARDWOOD FLOORS ARE WARPING.

Anyway, my birthday was good. I had sushi, a pedi, and derby. Those are all things my 38-year-old self requires for a successful celebration of That Fateful Day. 

I've come a long way.

Anyway, every day in May I am going to blog. I'm going to do this because I miss you guys, and also I have a lot going on in May so it will make me look cooler than I am. So that is a Thing I Am Attempting.

(Note...Attempting. Not Doing. Because we all know I will fail at this somewhere around Day 5.)

(Yes we do know that. Don't argue.)

I'll more likely than not be Attempting this during my lunch hour at work, which means my posts may be fragmented and strange. Just what you've come to expect!

Actually, I think work is why I haven't blogged much lately. I do a lot of communicating, all day, really, massaging of data and opinions and tweaking of emails and having meetings and talking on the phone, and then I pick up a 4-year-old who wants nothing more than to ask me questions and communicate more, and then by the time I get my precious hour to myself, the last damn thing I want to do is communicate. I don't even want to talk to Alfred, I just want to sit on the couch in my pajamas and watch Torchwood.

Communication is fun until you have to do it as a job.

But I still want to be A Blogger, and anyway I've run out of available episodes of Torchwood. Those are both good reasons to take inspiration from Becky and blog every day this month.

Aren't you glad I started off with such brilliance?
