Okay, You Don't Have To Say Nice Things About Me

I really didn't intend the "Woe is blogging" post as fishing-derby for compliments. I appreciate them, and I thank you for them, but I don't take compliments well and so, you know, you can stop.

Please stop before JeffB. comes in here (where's he been?) and embarasses himself with his typical JeffB pussy-shit.

I really just meant it as an apology for what is a rather lengthy funk. I can't remember the last stand-alone humor piece I wrote. And the last good one? Cripes, have to go back to The Apprentice parody, way back in November.

And I'm not threatening retirement or anything like that. This isn't really a prelude to some announcement. Just a general cri de couer (that's French for "whining like a little bitch") about how lame this blog has been lately, and my inability to change that, and, to be frank, my lack of desire to do much to change that.

Sometimes I'm just not all that into it. Can't help it. I just ain't got the juice.

Retirement from this is possible, sometime down the road, if I finally decide I just don't want to do it anymore. But it would only be a semi-retirement; I would give up on the quick-posts-n-links sort of thing and just post longer stand-alone pieces when I had something I wanted to say and felt good about the material.

Few seem to retire permanently or completely from blogging. Not only is there the very selfish vanity thing, but there's also the therapuetic side. I don't do personal stuff much, but I vent out my political gripes, and that keeps me from going bananas when I watch the news.

So, really, not really retiring, not really considering it seriously right now, and, while I thank you for the well-wishes, they're not necessary. The biggest compliment you guys give is just clicking on this dumb site every day, except on the weekends, when half of my so-called "internet friends" decide they've got better things to do than read internet blogs.

Again, my main intent was just to say, "Yeah, I know this blog is in the crapper right now, but it's been in the crapper before and hopefully it will come out of the crapper soon."
