Lookie here, it seems I have a blog

If the date stamp on the recent post is correct, I haven't updated this blog in over a year and a half.

Of course it is correct. I have been busy, I have had a lot of stuff going on, and I have found other outlets for my creativity.

That is not to say I have not contributed any textually exciting posts. I believe I have posted a few notes on Facebook. Perhaps even a vignette or two. But nothing regular.

I hope to change that. I have recently set up my studio microphone to accept voice-recognition input from MacSpeech Dictate -- just now, in fact -- and perhaps that will let me overcome my innate laziness. (Of course, I am insanely jealous of my Windows counterparts, who have access to Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11, which boasts a 99.99% accuracy rate without any training whatsoever, but hey, Mac users have always been second-class citizens now, haven't they?)

I have a lot of important things on my mind -- personal things, like when I'm going to get a new job, what topic enthralls me enough to warrant choosing it for the next episode of Lex Appeal (the breast-feeding show was interesting as far as it goes, but honestly I'm so sick of that topic right now, I never want to see another breast for as long as I live)... and I also want to hone my creative writing skills, as currently my sister Katherine is winning the battle there.

Anyway, I hope you like the nifty redesign -- I have always wanted to use some sort of moon and cloudy sky header, and today I happened to find the very image I was looking for on someone else's website, and a quick Photoshop later, it was mine! (Insert evil laughter here.)

Okay, that's enough for now. Time to go fill out a dozen job applications.
