re: never fucking updating

Look look look You can wait forever, if you want. You can wait to write until you have a laptop and can do so on the couch, you can wait to start until you’ve got another cup of tea, you can wait to write your poem until you’re in your right mind, wait to exercise [...]

re: all about the Benjamins

Dear Internet,

It’s been, what, a couple months since I said anything? A couple years at least since it was with any frequency? (Yeah, that’s not going to change any time soon.) Thought I’d forgotten about you, didn’t you? Well, uh, I kinda did. I barely check my email.

The truth is, I’ve just been too busy.

OK, the actual truth is, I haven’t been busy at all. I don’t want you to take this the wrong way, because, really, it has nothing (much) to do with you. I haven’t made anything in any medium, unless you count writing bad country (I’m guessing they’re country, anyway, because they have an alternating bass line and mention Texas sometimes) songs on my guitar (which you shouldn’t). I haven’t been doing a damn thing except reading and watching cheap Target movies and the M*A*S*H box set. There are worse ways of stagnating.

But, Friar, the rest of what [...]

things I enjoy

Things I enjoy: Writing. Pretty much anything: fiction, personal nonfiction, editorials, reviews, news(-letters), probably even marketing copy. Sentence construction is fun. Programming/scripting. Creating structures to process information and return useful results. Messing around with CMSs, mathematical stuff, form data processing, etc. Solving problems (who cares what they are) with the right functions in the right [...]

it wears me out

My savings account has 14 cents in it. My checking account is $16.10 overdrawn. Our income and expenses allow us, after necessities like rent, utilities, and food, about $50 a week extra. It would be a fair amount of money if it were just for fun, but this is what pays for new shoes, window [...]
