Dusting Off The Cobwebs

He shuffled his way in, looking awkward, shifting from one foot to the other and avoiding eye contact. He mumbled some excuses about being busy and being sorry that you hadn't heard from him recently but it was too late for you. You'd moved on to other blogs, blogs that were updated with regular, original content and not just lazy video links posted about six weeks ago. He could see that it was fruitless, that you just didn't need him anymore. Shoulders slumped with sadness and despair, he sidled his way out the way he came in and switched off the lights behind. Which was pretty rude, really, as it was your place and that left you standing in the dark...

No, only joking, you haven't really got rid of me. I'm much harder to shift than that, a lot like a really old gravy stain. In fact, I'm back from the whirlwind of getting things done that we call "real life". So what have I been doing? Many and varied things. In order to make it seem more interesting, here is a list of what I have potentially been doing. Only three of these things are true.

1. Inventing time travel by coming back from the future with the designs for the time machine I'm about to build.

2. Moving house.

3. Designing a revolutionary new concept in footwear that renders the common shoe obsolete.

4. Jungle vote overseeing.

5. Spending two weeks on the run from an international consortium of shoe manufacturers who are trying to have me killed for my new design which threatens their very way of life.

6. Proudly best man-ing.

So fairly quiet all round, really. Time to get back into the swing of posting you some inane jabberings that have poured from my head and are now seeping in through your eyes. That's starting to sound rather unsavoury so I think I'll stop that there. What's to come? Well, probably the usual round of both stuff and things combined together in a wordy way. Exciting teaser to make you come back for more, isn't it? Yes, I thought so, too.

Good to see you, Baldy!

We will, of course, be expecting 24 hour, round-the-clock blogging from now on. I'm sure that time-machine will come in handy :-)

Hi Baldy,

I get your point and have been properly chastised, but I didn't stop reading your blog because I didn't like it. I stopped reading because I didn't have web access for a few months there. I'm back and in rare form.

Oh you meant yourself...

My bad, carry on.

Chastising readers? I wouldn't dream of it! Surely the height of rudeness...
Well, you chose the right time to be away - I haven't been here. Although, even if I had, you still wouldn't have missed anything really...
