thank you to all of you who sent me emails asking if i was okay because where the hell are my blog entries.
thanks especially to Oaktown J who coined the phrase "blogligation." as in, "why haven't you been posting? you have a blogligation!"
and you know, he is totally right. i do have a blogligation -- and if not to Cliif, then at least to myself. and, now that we've established the NJ06 premise, we can move on. (where by "move on" i mean "look back.") especially since it's day two back here with the Bob and after running around like a lunatic all day yesterday, i am ready to do nothing but blog.
uh, not that this is feasible or anything, but we all need goals here in the new year, right?
oh, and? here's how we apply NJ06 to blogging while with Bob: it might seem like No Joy = focusing on improving my relationship with Bob and not on accruing more blog entries. right?
Bob is a priority, and he does come first, yes. but. i am focusing on my personal goals at the same time. and one of them is to write more. to write, in fact, all the time -- as often as possible, even if it's just silly stuff. because truth be told (gah! scary truth-telling!) i aspire to change Bob someday. i mean, i know you can't change a man, but it's possible sometimes, isn't it? i mean, it's possible that writing and Bob can merge, isn't it?
well, i hope so. and i'm going to work hard to try and make that happen.
and so Bob and the blog will have to learn to coexist.
