If It's October...

Every October, two things happen to me... October is the major fundraising month at work, so it involves long hours and a lot of running around (one of my running jokes is that my job is cushy, except when it's not, and October is an entire month in the "not" column. As if that weren't enough, my volunteer gig restarts on the first Saturday in October (since it's a kids' athletic program, it roughly coincides with the school year, specifically the months between fall and spring sports seasons). Suffice it to say, I pretty much pull a Captain Nemo- I basically won't surface for a month. My tradition is usually to post a video for my all-time favorite Sex Pistols song, but this year I'm posting the video for Let's Submerge by the late, great Poly Styrene and the X-Ray Spex- BLAST THIS ONE!





I've gotten savvier about posting in the years I've been blogging, so I'll try to set up posts for those days when I leave home in the vicinity of seven o'clock Saturday morning and don't get home until one-thirty or so Sunday morning, and I don't have any downtime for posting (for the record, I'm writing this at work because it's quiet now- all of the techies setting up for our fundraiser have left the site, but that's all about to end this weekend). I'm going to try to maintain a decent blogging schedule, but the posts will probably be shorter ones, with a fair amount of video embeds.

I often think I'm going to write shorter posts. But none of them ever turn out that way. I seem to be unable to say the most simple thing in less than a thousand words.

Have a good October - don't forget to take care of your basic needs. Foot fungus will get you dusted off just the same as a sucking chest wound...

My personal rule is, it's only unfair on "24 posts in 24 hours" days, and there's only been one of those.

Sometimes inspiration strikes, and what I think will be a short post gets some "meat on its bones", so to speak.

Nor worries there- I'll just be a little sleep deprived on certain days. This comment will inspire a post fer sher.

Thanks, it's really heartwarming to have such awesome, yet kooky, neighbors. It's like the best sitcom ever!

From my experience, if you only post once a month or so you don't have to worry about any "expectations" of your "readership" or any silly crap like that.

Do NOT let me use your hot tub--I will poop in it.

It's a burden, old chum.

I've heard your poop is sparkly and smells like bubblegum.
