i haven't showered for three weeks
well, not quite that long, but it actually has been a bit now. see, i'm doing school and still working 50+ hours per week, so i'm on the go from about seven a.m. (when i leave for school) until eleven thirty at night(when i get home from work), and even once i get home i still have to eat dinner, and do whatever household stuff i need to, and pay some attention to the geek empress, and maybe even take some time to myself for a bit before going to bed and doing it all over the next day. that dosen't leave much time for luxories like "showering", or "sleeping", or "driving the speed limit".

the point being, thank god i have an extremely slow job, or i would never even have a chance to read my favorite blogs, much less post on my own. hence the lack of material. that, and a lack of anything useful to say lately.

so thanks for reading, i'm amazed (but glad) anybody still stops by here, especially since posting is likely to remain at this level for, oh, the next four years or so. an occasional glance from the blogosphere keeps me happy.

and big ole' yips to the llamabutchers, the invaluable llamalanche is a big boost to my traffic (and my ego). if you're reading this, you probably got here from there, so you don't need me to tell you that a daily dose of bespeckeled llama is reccommended by the fda to prevent cancer, stupidity, and myxomatosis.

besides, i think this is probably one of the nicest things anybody's ever said of me. i think.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
