Now, onto other things.
One of the myriad of strange things that I'd picked up from my late father was his cerebral sense of humor. Like using words and letters to describe numbers. For example, a combination of words and letters were used to describe the title of this post.
Normally, a post like this would be a cause celebre, but considering I took the better part of a week off in order both clear my head and come to terms with a few semi-naked truths, today's post is more of a reflection of what I've done and what's in store for the future.
What I've done is somehow, from May 24, 2008 thru today, crank out 900 official posts for this particular blog. A feat that normally would be very impressive, if not for the fact that some of my favorite bloggers have pretty much done that much plus 33% (or more) during their tenure in the blogsphere. But, and this is a big but, if I combine the total here with all my other blogs (active or otherwise), then I'm floating somewhere around 1100 during my tenure here in the blogsphere. Which makes me a genuine member of the K club.
What's in store for the future is hard to stay. This week, the family is going off on a one week cruise from Florida to the Bahamas, so I'll be doing daycare for three dogs, one cat, one parrot, one remaining family member and myself. I also got a job interview as of the day of and time of this post, so I'm pretty excited about that.
Also, while I was on my mini-vaca, I was (finally) able to come up with a few ideas for some potential blog posts, which strangely enough, were found while I was on my mini-vaca.
My posting may be erratic for the rest of the month, because in addition to the daycare thingy and the job interview thingy, the main operating system that this daffy duck state of ours uses to run the myriad of HR, Financial and Payroll functions for both the public and private sector will be going down on the 23rd and is not scheduled to come back up until the day before Halloween. This is so that brand spanking new non-user friendly (aka compatible with Windows 7 and beyond) software can be installed. So basically I'll be doing various non-computer related work for that particular time frame and who knows what kind of state of mind I'll be in afterwards.
However, what I can say with a 100% certainty, is that I'll have an interview with YA author Jeanne Bannon this coming Wednesday, so be sure to stop by and check it out. Also, if you take a quick peek at the Solstice slide show, you'll find some new releases in quite a few different genres that are sure to pique your curiosity.
Lastly, I would like to say to all my friends, blog readers and blogging buddies, that I sincerely and genuinely appreciate the fact that you've managed to stick with me for almost 5 years and made me a part of either your day-to-day or weekly activities.
