Hi dwindling readership!

I'm Mike!  You may remember me from such blog posts as "Holy cow, I suck at parenting!" and "I have bathroom issues!"

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still here.  I'm not funny or bloggy any more, but I'm still here.  It's just hard to blog when I get home from work depressed or angry from my new commute.  It's really not a bad job, but I sit on the trains each day and try to figure out how exactly I ended up where I am.

I either need to make peace with this or move on.

Anyway, that's what I've been up to, not that it's much of an excuse.  I'll be around more though.

I'm so sad for you! I don't even know you but I think you're hilarious and I hope you feel better and start blogging again soon.

I'm right there with ya, brother. We work to live, not live to work. At the end of the day, leave work at work. You have a beautiful family to come home to. Get back on stage.

Thanks anonymous people (and Louie). The internet is nice!

bagowI don't know how this blog shit works but having to go through all this word verification crap just to leave a comment is not helping your interactivity with your fans.Most blogs I interact with just require that I fill in a comment box and press 'Publish' or something like that. Why make it counter-intuitive? Having said that I'm now having to go through exactly that !!!!

Anon, I apologize. I turned on the word verification crap because without it I was getting a bunch of comment spam.

Hi Mike! The beauty of RSS or Google Reader or whatever is that when there's a post we're right back here. Welcome back!

And did you miss the introduction of Blogger's comment spam filter? It works pretty well, only a few harmless ones get through and they're really easy to spot. At least they are when you get as few real comments as I do.

Good luck with the work/life balance too.

but you are appreciated so much more when you _do_ write!

Lola, ok, I turned on the spam filter. You're right. It mostly works.

Hi nrd2, and thanks!
