Hi there…uh…is this thing still on?
First of all, thanks for checking back in. Second, thanks to DannyFrom504 for putting those posts up. Everybody should make friends with a Navy Corpsman – they’re fucking good people.
Sorry about the long absence. Some of you folks know I work in EMS. It’s a good gig most times, and I honestly don’t know what else I’d do for a living. Unfortunately, the area I live has been on the evening news waaayyyy too much lately. That means lots of dumbass ambalamps drivers like me are fighting Darwin tooth-and-nail. I wish I didn’t need my anonymity so much – I’ve seen some Interesting Things lately. It’s been a stark reminder of how beautiful, ugly, heroic, giving, selfish, cunning, and just plain stupid the human animal is. I’ve been shaking my head in amazement a lot these days.
Hopefully things get back to normal around here. We need it. I want to sleep in my own bed regularly, and maybe put up a blog post once in awhile, too.
I started writing a big ol’ post about how we’re all three missed meals away from being animals, and the general dog-eat-dog nature of The Universe. In reading over it, I realized two things:
1. Telling normal people horror stories isn’t nice or helpful.
2. I need to take a week off and go surfing.
I’ve got about five things I want to write about. Right now my brain is too full of blood and fire and death to be much good at it. I’ll keep working on it, though, and when I get something more like Dogsquat and less like Ragnarök, I’ll put it up.
Couple days, maybe.
Be careful out there, and take a minute to think about how nice it is to be alive.
