Dylan Goes Electric

So yes, I left this blog woefully unattended for some time. I do apologize, my Ledgers. (That’s how I refer to you when I close my eyes and dream a little dream, by the way. Thousands of long lost relatives of Heath Ledger from around the world [Gomen nasai, Japan!]. Oh, and I guess it has something to do with the name of this site too.) This was not done out of spite, negligence or any other fancy college words like that. No, I hit the job circuit again recently and needed to go under the radar for a bit, just until things blew over. You know how it is. Not that I’m engaged in any high crimes or anything around here, but this site doesn’t exactly scream “hire me.” Come to think of it, I don't scream that either.

Life, these past few months, has been nothing short of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. I’ve been miserable at work, I moved to a great town, grew more miserable at work, went to California, went back to work, and then I just landed a new job, joined a book club, a writing class AND bought a laptop. As Ghostface would say, “The game got real.”

But let’s live in the now, brothers and sisters: I’m back. And soon, I’ll have the internets available to me at the homestead, which will make a tremendous difference and I expect my posts will regain their formerly fierce comic alacrity in no time at all. For now, I know I probably sound like a deadbeat dad, but bear (or bare? your choice) with me just a short while longer.

Hope all’s well on your end of the cord. If you want to leave me a note and tell me what you did for the holidays or what you’re going to do for summer vacation, I’d love to hear about it. You’re as special to me as Crystal Pepsi. And I mean that.

For now, I will part ways, but I leave you with my favorite quote from the highly quotable film Big Trouble in Little China, as delivered by the inimitable Kurt Russell in his role as Jack Burton:

“Ok, you people! Sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning. And if we're not back by dawn... call the president.”
