Young lady, WHERE have you been?

And why is Easter so early this year?

I knew it had something to do with the moon, but this explanation is much better than what I could possibly provide. Okay, you caught me. I could totally explain it but I’m being lazy about it short on time.

Whoa, totally ignoring the topic at hand. Sorry, dudes.

I haven’t posted a single blog in one week. I’ve also rarely commented on others’ blogs. Besides twittering almost daily, my Jeannette 2.0 days went on sabbatical.
Or something like that.

Where have I been?

I’m going to blame both my prolonged absence and the early arrival of Easter on the moon.

I’ve spent a lot of time simply trying to recover from shock of, again, being screwed out of payment for text I’ve written. I really want to elaborate about the situation on my blog, but haven’t decided if that’s a good move or not. Is it a bad idea? Anyone interested in hearing me spin a yarn? Better yet, anyone need a writer? Or want to hire me for something?

I should digress before I start down the path of a horrid rant, akin to drunk blogging.

Subject Change

I’ve determined that Twittering enables the slacker within me to escape. At the same time, it’s a useful reminder of a few things that have happened lately. Like, I got vaccinated against pneumonia and meningitis but didn’t get a lousy t-shirt, went to yoga several times, had a days-long James Bond marathon, visited with the in-laws, celebrated St. Patrick’s Day and took a road trip to see Man Man (the show was fantastic. I had a great time, was highly entertained and can’t wait for another opportunity to see them).

So that’s where I’ve been.

Listening to: a bunch of NIL8


  1. I wouldn't mind reading a good rant. And I hope had lots of Guinness for St. Patrick's Day!

  2. Glad you're back, I was worried you'd OD's on rooster sauce. I can't get Twitter at work, boo. It's like they want me to be productive. WTF?

    I'd love to hire you as my personal assistant but I can only pay in wine and chocolate chip cookies.

  3. @hi! i'm kim
    At least you're offering to pay me something.

    I drank Rogue Mocha Porter on St. Pat's. That's prolly my favorite-est beer.

  4. I've been light on the commenting myself. I also deleted my Twitter account because the shit was so distracting at work. Maybe I'm not as 2.0 as I thought I was?

  5. Gah! That sucks that you were screwed out of payment for work. Sucks! I hope you are able to get the money soon. But yes am interested in hearing the story.

  6. drunk blogging......lol ! i wish i could lol literally but i have strep and my throat hurts so bad. is that like drunk calling ?

  7. That's a great idea, to blame the moon! Mind if we use it?

    We wouldn't mind a rant either. Vent! That's what friends are for!

    If it's any comfort, our notorious cousin Marina the Nut had a terrible experience recently, moneywise: Her bad German resulted in a misunderstanding that cost her 500 euros. We should blog about it once...

  8. I like rants - nice and distracting. There's a pneumonia vaccination? I should have gotten one, since I just had pneumonia.
