My dear friend Nel at Reactionary Tales just sent me a message wondering where I have been. She said it was unusual for me to be MIA for so long. This was odd because I just posted The Hamster Wheel of Introversion on Wednesday. Confusion ensued.
Come to find out, every time I posted something I had started a few days or weeks ago, the published date didn’t update to when it’s posted. Instead, it retains its original draft creation date. I updated it today. I had no idea this was happening until Nel went searching for me and found me under a rock created entirely of ignorance. It’s a BIG rock.
I have decided that since I have 90 posts under my belt and many of them have probably never seen the light of day by at least some of you, I will create a new series called Humph Day! every Wednesday from now on. I’m humphing at myself for my ignorance and anything with a “hump” in it seems like it is screaming to be posted on a Wednesday.
My apologies to many of you who missed some of my posts. Also, my apologies to those of you who had already seen my posts and now are being deluged (once a week) with reruns.
I also apologize to those of you who have recognized that I have maligned hamsters everywhere by announcing that they have had a “p” when in fact they do not. Not to say that some hamsters might head for the loo every now and again, but they are certainly NOT hampsters. Maybe I was confusing them with hipsters. Damn it, now I have a vision of a hipster hampster and it just won’t go away! I’m going to crawl down under my BIG rock of ignorance now.
Rest assured, you will still see fresh material here and also the weekly Guest in Jest series on Fridays. Now I get to add Humph Day! every Wednesday. Please ignore any and all of these posts at will. There is plenty of room here under my BIG rock of ignorance. You can join me here for a drink in lieu of reading my stuff. You know what they say: “Ignorance is bliss.” If that’s true, then I’m as blissful as a hipster hamster.
