Sneaking in a post...

So I haven't posted in months and have received many emails wondering if I'm dead. I didn't respond and was tempted to let it play out disappear to Costa Rica never to be heard from again but alas, here I am, alive and well in Los Angeles.

Here's the summary of what you've missed. In June I was feeling spunky and changed my life-long left hair part to the other side. Things got a little funky after that and I even switched from my Republican allegiance to Democrat. But I was unable to control the whirlwind of change and the day before the November 4th election, my part and my party allegiance reverted to old ways.

In August I read all the Twilight books, while silently hating myself. Apparently I'm a Jacob girl.

In August, I read all the somber, intelligent books I could handle (Kite Runner, anyone) to atone for my flippant reading of August. It was overcompensation and many nights I went to be sobbing at the terrifyingly awful things I was reading about. But it did get the taste of teenage romance novels out of my mouth.

In October, I called in sick and played computer games for about 2 weeks straight. I developed a nasty case of carpal tunnel. I kicked the quickly developing habit but my wrist still aches day and night. Halloween (my favorite day of the year) was a blast with Pixie being a princess (yawn) and Cher being a pint-sized flapper.

In November I started sewing again after a three month long break. I'm happier that way. And my ad people were starting to email me reminding me that they would pull my ads if I didn't post so here, for sheerly mercenary reasons, I give you a post. I have my pride and seeing a blog writhe in malnutrition does make me feel a bit guilty.

So yes, after a long mental health break, I'm back. All three of you who are still reading my blog can get together and share a bowl of ice cream in celebration. I'm going to comit to blogging at least five days a week for the next month to help myself get back into the habit so feel free to start checking daily again. I'll be here.

Yay! Welcome back. Although I have sent people your way to see your transvestite post while you were on break. Classic.

How funny...I just was checking my Google reader yesterday and clicked over here to make sure you hadn't gone private or something. And today, here you are!

Clyde said...

GREAT! we'll be here too so please don't starve us anymore.

Jennifer B. said...

Ha! I loved your comments on Twilight.

Sarah said...

Twilight, huh? I read about that the other day and wondered what it was all about... There are some perks about living out in la la land! Glad your back!

Lindsay said...

Hooray! You're back!!

Amy said...

Well yay! I love your posts!

Nancy Sabina said...

So you're SO disappointed in Pixie's choice of Princess for Halloween that you didn't take any pics of her?

Maren Hansen said...

Yay, I missed your posts! Good for you taking a mental health break... :) And I know what you mean about Twilight. But, everyone has to have their Guilty Pleasure... :)

NG said...

Yay!

What an absolute doll Cher is as a flapper. Genius.

Jessica said...

I'm an Edward girl....

Irishmama said...

I thought I was the only Jacob girl. I'm only on Eclipse (almost done), but I'm just liking Jacob more than Edward.

Welcome back Hollywood!

Jen Morrison said...

wow! I'm glad you are back! So funny about compensated for reading the twilight series.

Hollywood said...

Wow - I really didn't expect people to even see this post for a while so I'm glad that all you guys are still rooting for me!

Yes, the trannie post is definitely worth coming back for but even that can't last more than a few months!

Nancy, Pixie insisted I just buy her an off-the-rack Sleeping Beauty costume from Target and that just goes against all my Halloween sensitivities so yes, it will take me a few more months to forgive her.

Honestly, all while reading the Twilight books I was just hating both Bella and Edward. She was a wussy whiner and he was just a cold vamp with no attitude. Thank goodness for Jacob - he saved the series for me. Still haven't seen the movie, but I've got to say, the guy they picked for Edward is HOT so maybe I'll change my mind after that.

I'm posting to avoid death. Welcome back!

chattypatra said...

Woo-hoo, you're back! I am glad, especially because I hate Bella and Edward too, and I love Jacob. I read the books and was on the fence over them until I got to Breaking Dawn. Now I can't stand the series. I actually sold the books to a friend who saw the movie and is in love with Robert Pattinson now. [Oh, God, why can't there be any more Harry Potter novels? Why, oh, WHY?]

I missed you; thanks for posting good stuff again! :)

John Benac said...

Good to be hearing from you again. Heaven knows I never call you.

Aunt LoLo said...

Hey, I've missed you! Such is the FABULOUSNESS of the Google Reader - no matter how long it's been, I always know when you post!

Welcome back, mental health and all. Glad you're sewing again!

Tracie said...

5 times a week for the next month!?! What a great Christmas gift! Thank you!! I haven't read the Kite Runner, but oh my gosh, I've never cried so much in a movie. I agree about Jacob.

Welcome back. :)

Heather said...

welcome back!

Colleen said...

Hooray! Glad to have you back. Love Cher's costume. And I've totally missed your blog. Please watch Twilight. I'm already on the edge of my seat, waiting for the resulting blog post.

frolicnfibers said...

Yippee! I love your blog and have missed reading it!

MommyJ said...

I'm all about mental health breaks.

Have you ever read The Book Thief? By Marcus Zusak? It's awesome. It will most definately make you cry, but it'll make you feel smarter too.

We are halloween opposites. If I can get away with buying a costume straight off the rack at Target, I'm all for it! I think I can still read your blog, but it may be tough.

Just kidding. I'm glad you're back.

love from northern cal,

bro

Melinda said...

Annie said...

Glad you're back! Twilight is a guilty pleasure. But I haven't seen the movie yet!

Kate said...

I was so surprised and excited to see a plethora of posts from you when I pranced over here to check in today. Welcome back!

Michemily said...

Wahoo! And just think, in the last week of November, I talked about your dead blog in a paper!
