"You are KILLING me with the lack of blogging updates."

Settle down, gentle readers. Settle down. I'll have you know that I was recharging my batteries after my debauched Pride weekend. And now it's the start of a long holiday weekend (I have Monday and Tuesday off), but let's not forget this past week. Dear readers, I present you with the bounty that has been my week -- a veritable cornucopia of banality.

* I have been sick on and off (more on than off) since March. Sinus infection, chest infection, cough, plague -- you name it, I've had it. Went to the doctors on Monday and he seems to think that it's all tied into seasonal allergies and prescribed me Zyrtec. M'kay, but what of this painful swollen throat I've had for nearly two weeks? It's the PLAGUE.

* On Tuesday I staged an email beatdown letting Val know what I thought of the situation. It got the intended response when a reply came at 10:10 pm ending a ten day standoff with 839 words of text. She said everything that I expected and everything that I needed hear -- she's been crazy busy, she's been withdrawn because of stress, she can't handle a relationship now though she really likes me. Okay, thanks. I told her we should stick to being friends.

* On Thursday I nearly got a hell of a shock when I got an unexpected bonus at work. A bonus! WTF, I never get bonuses. Also an outstanding freelance invoice finally got paid and a check is on the way. And I got paid on Thursday. Now I can buy an AC unit for my apartment.

* After a long day at work on Thursday, I went to the CasHank Hootenanny -- best described as an jam session for the fiddle and washboard set. Very different and an awesome way to spend a Thursday night.

So there you go. I'm going to have to restart OFTL, Val is only a friend, and suddenly I have mo-nay in my bank account. This lesbian is going shopping!

That's better. Much better.

That's what I'm talking about. Let me know when it's up and running, so I can come and visit! ;)

After enduring days of hellacious storms that left my home with no power nor Internet access - though thankfully free of the large oak trees that are now decorating some of the neighbors living rooms - I immediately came to PNB for a lively update on lesbian shopping and OFTL drama. Alas, there hasn't been an update since June!?! I second J-Wo's comments: you're killing us.
