It’s been awhile. After my last post you probably thought that I’d gone and strapped on a hemp-fabric parachute and dropped out of society and landed smack in the middle of a drum circle somewhere. But that is not the case. I am angry and judgmental as ever!
Really, all that’s up is that I’ve been juggling several writing projects (one down, two and a half to go, and one apparently canceled: wah, RIP Jane) with weekend road trips to Iowa City and Wisconsin (yea, for we have seen beer signs and mustard museums) with the usual summer-fun dumbfuckery. For instance, we spent 4th of July night on our back porch drinking gin-and-tonics and watching all kinds of Albany Park illegal pyrotechnical recklessness light up and blossom in the sky above the two-flats. Behold the lamest video ever, captured with my camera, in a just-to-see- how- the video- feature -works kind of way, and uploaded to YouTube just see how that thing works. I know it’s hard to tell if those are really fireworks or just someone flicking a lighter in a basement crawlspace, but indulge me here.
I’ll be back next weekâ€”or maybe sooner, depending on how the writing goesâ€”with more BlogHer specific stuff. In the meantime, go out and play in the sprinkler and stuff.
