But I Listen to it Anyway, Dammit

Why can't I hear the song "Straight from the Heart" by Bryan Adams without bursting into tears?

A Touch of Grey Kind of Suits You Anyway

Yeah, wow. Did everyone have a good Halloween? Gah.

I would apologize for my absence, but I think it would somewhat presumptuous to do so, given that my readership in 2010 wouldn't really suffer from my extended absence. Heh. But I will say that everything is fine - I am still in good health, reading other blogs as actively as before, and marveling at all of these people that make the time to keep up with the online life chronicle thing. Seriously...who has the time for stuff like search engine optimization, deep statistical dives into site traffic, and staying on top of online trends? That is not now, nor has it ever been, my interest in writing here. Last time I checked, I had time enough for just 1 job, and that would be the one that PAYS ME, the corporate job I keep so carefully anonymous here.

Time. Ahh, time. There has been a dearth of that lately. Also? Inspiration to write...where did mine go? But as they say, to cure writers block, one must just make the effort to sit down and write, with perhaps a disregard for the quality of what is produced. But you don't come here for quality, so I will take my own advice ands just write something. ANYTHING.

Did you know that I am not really a Starbucks person? I don't understand the appeal of paying 4 dollars for coffee that tastes like tar, filtered through someone's used underwear? Maybe my palate isn't refined enough to truly appreciate it, whatever. I patronize Starbucks approximately 3 times a year. Mostly for peppermint mochas and oatmeal. Draw your own conclusions. I will tell you that I am sitting in a Starbucks rightthisverymoment, drinking a green tea, and loving the rain outside. The fact that I am writing this post WHILE at Starbucks, however, well let's just chalk that up against my "total cliche" allowance for 2011.

Hope you have all been well, that you had memorable holidays, and thank you for visiting, as always.
