I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry!

So it would seem I created a blog just to ignore it.

I assure you that was not my intention.

But I've been working on an upcoming move to a new apartment, and that's had me pretty overwhelmed to begin with (among other things. Just....ugh).

That, and my internet connection until then will be crappy at best. Except at work, but then I'll be, you know, working.

I promise to be back in just a little over a week, and it is my sincerest hope to post something worth checking in for. My brain's been buzzing quite a bit lately, so there should be something up there worth sharing!

Ah, hell.

You got a link instead of a video.

Well, damn.

Sorry, folks. Hope you enjoy it anyway!

Experimental cut-and-paste

Here is my experimental cut-and-paste. It's my first time trying to post a video, so wish me luck!

I have to say, I really do think this should be required viewing for anyone posting in a forum for the first time. Especially the AICN folks. The other day, a commentor over at Pajiba aptly compared those boards to Lord of the Flies.

How To Behave On an Internet Forum I couldn`t have said it better myself--essential viewing.

Hello, hello...

Hi, everyone.

I've been curious about this for a while now, and thought I'd finally give it a go.

It's the end of the day though, and I'm feeling a touch brain-fried. See, my job involves writing voice-over scripts that describe movies and TV shows for visually impaired audiences. And we've been working on Masterpiece Theatre's Jane Austen Month. Which has been great - I was really a bit young mentally/emotionally to appreciate her in school, so I'm glad to have a second exposure to her. Anyway, the stories are great, but describing the rolling hills, the long, impassioned gazes from across ballrooms, the carriages arriving at Shropvishiwestenhoopleshire Manor... all that is surprisingly tiring!

Also, I recently gave myself a minor concussion on a toilet paper dispenser. So there's that.

So I think I'll just post a short poem I wrote a while back, fill out my profile, and watch a little sumpthin-sumpthin on Netflix. Thanks for reading, and good night!

The Nomad's Refrain

Here's to saying my prayers,
And here's to knocking on wood-
By taking the path
Of least resistance,
I'll never amount to much good.
