today i rec'd a tweet from a gentleman who said, "You make jokes about Egypt, my nation you idiot! I'm not Egyptian, I'm Arab."
it's hard to refute that sort of logic
i have had a pretty hard time getting anything to paper lately. TracyLynnP passed on to heaven, and out of respect i did not put pen to paper for a few days. she would have wanted me to write something, so i put together two installments of my winter story. but then the chronology was out of whack, and the beginning would be the last piece, and has to be rearranged, so i just threw my hands up, and worked on another project, which is a dangerous precedent.
yet nobody has seemed to have noticed in the least, or asked me, so i guess it really didn't bother anyone.
i have been the victim of monster storms which left me powerless... no electricity. but then i look at folks like @LukeRomyn an author down under, he tweeted that the cyclone was hitting hard, and he was still tweeting.

and i have my new years resolution: to write daily. so i have kept my word to myself, if i fudge the numbers a bit, i have averaged one post per day, since i posted more than two blog entries on some days in january.
things are settling down. http://dirtygarnet.com has a new post, @TheCriticalPost on Twitter wants me to finish a piece on the blackbirds, @PiperBayard has me as subject content next week, and well, it's time i find it within myself to get back on schedule.
thanks for reading and stopping by, i cannot tell you how much fun it has been each day to laugh again, and to share a moment or two with each person whom i've met.
even those who think i'm an idiot
