It Has Been a While

17 Feb

It has been a while since I posted something on this blog. Actually, it has been a month. That is the longest I have ever gone without writing. However, there is a good reason.

We moved.

For those who do not know, moving is a time-consuming process with a lot of moving parts. Heck, we just got internet today. It is hard to blog without internet.

Although we have been here for a couple of weeks, things are still in a state of flux. Many things are not in the places that they should be in. We have not figured out all of the light switches. However, we are getting settled in.

I really have nothing to write about. I just wanted everyone to know that I have not gone anywhere.

I will leave you with this.

Today, I sat around the house while the internet got hooked up. I got some reading done. Currently, I am reading The Carpetbaggers by Harold Robbins. I always liked the movie and decided to read the book. It must have been scandalous when it came out in 1961.

I also watched Waterworld for the first time. According to everything I had heard, it is one of the worst movies of all time. Well, it was not that bad. In fact, I kind of enjoyed Dennis Hopper as the bad guy.

Anyway, I promise to not to stay gone for a month in the future.

    Funny, I’m reading “The Adventurers” right now, but I hated the movie. (So, while your literary choice makes sense, mine is likely a product of mental illness.) Is this a start of a flash Robbins revival? Just thought I’d ask. For once, I’d like to be right on top of a grand cultural shift.

      I don’t think there is going to be a Robbins comeback. I just thought I would read the book since I’ve seen the movie a thousand times. They could have never filmed everything in the book in 1961.

    Moving is one of the most traumatic human events that isn’t life or death. We moved a lot for a while, but we’ve been here for 18 years. I think they will have to bury us here. I don’t have it in me to do it again. Congratulations!

      This is our last move. I plan on staying here from now on.

        And I hope you do. Moving is hard. I had a lot more energy back when. I think about it now and all I want to do is take a nap.

    Are there any light switches that don’t appear to turn anything on (or off)?
