suddenly, this summer


just in case there are still a few yeses in response to the query in the previous entry title (well, actually, it would have been the previous title, but Bill Gate's WinWord gremlins decided to stab me in the heart once again (what does he get out of putting out a product that is so unreliable that we expect it to crash regularly?... much bad karma, the poor old geek, I wish he'd see that and get the bugs out once and for all), so there was some relatively useless ventilating and then there's this... more relatively useless ventilating)...

start again...

suddenly, this summer, I disappeared from this place that has been so much a home on the web for so many years... and suddenly, this summer, I started expanding my daily babblings while skipping days and not obsessing over whether there was an entry uploaded for your enjoyment for every single day or your life... and suddenly, this summer, I am back for however many of you still remain after my six week absence... yes, six weeks... for some species, that's a whole gestation cycle... for some, that's many lifetimes... for you and I, it is a blink of the cyber eye for suddenly, this summer, dozens of entries appear right here...

as foretold many times right here...

so here we are and right here and now the uploading begins (overlooking that last pre-cambrian entry that was little more than a fart in the ocean)... and I must admit that one thought that has sorta haunted me as my time away from here grew longer and longer (in linear time) was what good is uploading dozens of entries in one fell swoop when the odds are nobody will actually read them all because even friends who care to know where I've been and even fans who enjoy my peculiar form of babbling will not likely have the time to read fifty thousand words (or more... and what if I started up with daily entries here again... and what about all the other places I am writing even more currently than this one... of course I am insane, love me or whatever) ...

anyway, as in here we are, here we go... the top ten reasons why you should find time to read every single entry I've ever written, but most especially the various dozens that follow this one all uploaded in the next few minutes, or hours, wherever comes first:

10. you want to be the first to do it (and revere irreverence)
9. fifty thousand monkeys can't be wrong (but one can be President)
8. you wonder about a guy who watches teenage girls sleep every night (and all the great innuendo)
7. you ran out of gas and are waiting for a tow (and Jesus loves you)
6. for the cool new music secrets (and hidden porn)
5. golden rings (and parenthetic asides)
4. you are tired of religion, politics, and the news (and want a different sort of nonsense)
3. you understand God's plan (and sarcasm)
2. you actually care (and believe in love)

and the #1 reason you should find time to read every single entry I've ever written, but most especially the dozens that follow this one all uploaded in the next few minutes, or hours, wherever comes first:

1. Santa is watching!


of course I could have subtly slipped song lyrics or at least references to great moments in history into that top ten, but I didn't so don't bother looking too deeply for the hidden meanings unless you like that sort of thing and in that case, feel free to do what I do, which is make them up as I go along... remember the archers who hit the target most are the ones who shoot first and paint the target later, so keep your arrows dry and your paint moist... it would also work out well if you kept your hands dry and lips moist, but then, that's why they invented KY and I don't mean Kentucky... no offense to anyone from the state spooning with Tennessee, I was only passing through...

and now, I'd like to shout out to all the good folk living out in the great northwest (and the great folk living out in the good northwest too) because I may actually move up there one day (Bert and Berry are trying to convince me) and want to cultivate loyal followers so I get a head start on the cult I have planned for my retirement... hey, we all should have a good retirement plan... you are beautiful people, every one of you, and I appreciate your spreading the good word about me...

and a quick shout out to all the allure of New York City women (and you know what I mean you sweet foxes)... I have finally come to the realization (or finally declare it to myself cuz deep down, I've always known) still find you quite irresistible (which is why I seldom go back, maybe... or maybe I am just waiting for one of you to come find me because only a wandering New Yorker could truly understand what I mean) and if you choose to follow me around (or stalk me), please have your medical records handy (and if I know you from this or any prior life, please bring a tape or CD of our favorite songs so we can listen to something as we catch up on old times and decide whether we want to get naked and crazy on each other or just laugh about it)...

no seriously, how are you?...

and no sweat, Southern California, you still can have me on weekends if you want to pay my way (I might even be talked into swimming to Hawaii, but only if you understand the relationship between the beach and the water and everything else)... and to everyone from all other locales (including Toronto), please write for further details and include a comprehensive explanation of why someone as potentially sane as you would want to hang out with a manic madman like me (photos optional, but much appreciated cuz I love visuals... and music definitely earns extra points)...

of course there is, as always, seriousness in my irreverence and irreverence in my seriousness and I leave it for you to try to figure out which is which and how much and what I am really saying between the words... asking helps, sometimes... the key to understanding may be in realizing when to take ego seriously and when not to, but then, that could simply be a red herring... or an albatross...

and if you are just too cool (or just happen to be stopping by here on a Friday because you know my work schedule and hope to find me finally updating this life in black and white, well, you can see the entries pop up as they pop up because I am setting out, right here and now, to upload a few dozen entries... yes that's right, a few dozen entries... so you will have just a few minutes (or longer) to read the entry as the current entry before another entry is uploaded to usurp the entry you might be ready as the current entry...

crazy, isn't it?..

but it's true... and if you are not lucky enough to be here now (I remember that book, Be Here Now, from a psych class I took at the beautiful Monterey Peninsula College once... not that I was meaning to refer to it here and now), well, you are reading this from the archives and have gone back dozens of entries to find this one for your own reasons (not nefarious, I hope) and unless you actually got here by reading entries in backwards order (which would be odd, but then, so am I), then you have the excitement of dozens of entries ahead of you to catch up on...

so now, with a click of your finger (or flick of your wrist), you may proceed to the next entry aptly titled where the heck have you been (if it's not there yet, give it a second or few) in which I attempt some sensible explanation about where I have been (because, if you haven't gotten the point just yet, this entry is being uploaded after approximately 42 days of silence (that being time without entries) here behind the candoor... thank you for coming and caring enough to want to know)...

may you have a blessed journey...
