Shit happens

So clearly, things have been going down. Fortunately, they are things that, at least in the medium- and long-term have rekindled my passion for slogging through the Herald every day when I could be undergoing waterboarding instead.

Mainly, I got a fulltime job, instead of my louche layabout position at the University. I'm starting a new position... at the University. Interestingly, the lapse in posting has been in anticipation of starting work, rather than due to any actual work demands. I'm confident that, once I start, I will have both the time, the discipline and the enthusiasm to keep going. But, you know, whatever.

But that's not all. I've heard from an internal source - let's call him GG - that there will be an exciting new development on the Herald website at some time tomorrow - a redesign! Better news, more profound opinions, whites whiter, colours brighter, etc.

Anyway, this is just so no one thinks that the blog (or its author) has died. Regular communication will start sometime between now and next Monday.

    Luckily being able to count isn't that important.

    Hopefully the constant positive feedback and encouragement from your commenters will help too!

  5. Gazza, way to miss the subtle levels of irony in my post.

    Yes, that's it.

  6. So will you be moving out of your Mum's house? How will you comment on the Herald without Diana's hard copy in front of you? Oh wait, the university has free ones. No more driving (or being driven in/by) your Mum's Mistubishi Colt?

    I think this is that period in life when you go from being a boy with a beard to a man... with a beard. Yes THAT kind of beard you flamboyant poof!

    Should I assemble a search party?
