This post is a test. Okay, so maybe it's nothing clever and if you've come here from my other blogs, you're thinking "What gives? This is the best you can do for your maiden post?"
Sadly, tonight it is. This is the best I can do. I've spent half the day getting this blog set up. First I had to over think the name and the url, then I moved on to fretting about losing readers. Later, I obsessed over creating the header, futzed incessantly with the layout and finished up by reorganizing my rss feeds (of which I have an obscene amount - no wonder I don't have time to do anything else) so that I could have a manageable blog roll.
And let us not forget that I also had to take the occasional cookie break (the damn things are almost gone, thank goodness), a pee break now and then and I even stopped a couple of times so that I could go practice guitar for Rock Band. Hey - I finally got 98% on the medium setting on R.E.M.'s Orange Crush. I swear just now when I typed that, I could feel my vagina turn into a penis. And a very nice one at that.
"And you're starting off your posts talking about penises and vaginas? What kind of place is this?" I can hear you wondering right now.
Relax. I'm using the anatomically-correct terms. I didn't say that I could feel my hair-pie transform into a trouser snake, did I? No. See - I'm going to do this thing right. Besides, I wasn't speaking of those body parts in a sexual context anyway. In fact, I was making a rude sexist statement implying that only males can enjoy a game like Rock Band. Maybe I'd better drop that whole thread right there.
So anyway, like an inept hostess, I'm finally getting around to welcoming you in the sixth paragraph. Welcome. This is the new place. I hope you'll like it. I noted that some of you seemed concerned that I was going away or upset or struggling in some way. Au contraire. Things are good. Even with all the upheaval and uncertainty of things around here, I am generally in a happy place. Without the aid of prescription drugs. I needed to cut back on my online time because I was feeling out of balance and realized that something had to give. I don't want to stop reading you guys and leaving my goofy comments and I don't want to quit writing either so what am I to do?
Prioritize, organize and focus. One blog where I'll write as Lisa. There's another place where I might make an occasional appearance as my evil twin. I'm still deadly, Utah. Don't you worry.
In my downtime, I will actually read those books I check out of the library, tickle MathMan's fancy when he least expects it, laugh with The Spawn, shreik some thrash metal, bury my face in some cat's sweet belly and perfect my faux British accent. Sometimes all at the same time. Lord - doesn't that make you just want to free up all your time to do such exciting things?
So now that you're here, please make yourself at home. I've set out some refreshments and put away the breakables. Grab the new rss feed, so you can find your way back easily. And thank you for stopping by.
Because I'm glad you're here, that's why.
