Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

I’m Back, But I’m Leaving… But I’ll Be Back Soon…

For when you care enough to blog the very best.

Well, it finally went and happened. After a couple of weeks of playing the ‘timestamp game’ and conjuring posts at insane hours, I finally went and missed a day. I didn’t register a post here for a full calendar day. Friday, August 22nd, 2003 shall evermore be known as ‘The Day The Blog Passed By‘.

Or something. Basically, I got lazy, and missed a day. I’m sure you’re all crushed, and shocked, and a little sweaty. I know I am. But it’s okay; I’m doing my best — or some reasonable facsimile thereof — and the mega-posts I’ve been banging you over the head with lately probably more than make up for an unscheduled off day. Assuming anyone’s reading this on a regular basis, anyway.

Besides, it isn’t like I didn’t write anything, anyway. I just didn’t post it. Or more correctly, I didn’t post it here.

(No, no, the first was more correct, actually — I didn’t post anything, but I did email a post to someone else, and they posted it elsewhere. Whew! I’m awfully glad we cleared that up, aren’t you?)

In any case, the post in question was most graciously and nicefully prepared and posted by my good friend the Soup Lady over at The Joy of Soup. The post is about my recipe for bratwurst that I unleashed on unsuspecting party guests at our barbecue last weekend.

(And again, on rather more suspecting guests, last night.)

It’s also about six million words long, so be warned. Still, if you like this stuff, you’ll probably enjoy that stuff, so go check it out. And be sure to browse the Joy of Soup archives — SueP (that’s Sue Playdee, get it? Hey, I don’t writes ’em, folks…) has got a veritable plethora of soup recipes, tips and hints, and other fun facts for food freaks. Or even phood phreaks, if you happen to be one of those. So go there. You know you want to. And many, many thanks to SueP for the opportunity to litter another site with my blithery prose. It’s good to spread the love.

So, look, not to neglect you fine folks further or anything, but I’ve got another shindig to go to later today. And I’m not sure exactly what shape I’ll be in when I get back. So please accept this mini-post, which points you to a much, much longer post, as a token of my appreciation, and a promise to do better tomorrow. Really. Cross my heart. So, until then, peace, folks. I’ll be back soon. And do try not to miss me. I’ll be thinking of you. Really!

  1. SueP. says:

    Well, some kind of phreaks are working the search engines overtime and the referrer logs have been interesting reading since that entry. This is just like the time I made the mistake of mentioning the *Olesn Tiwns*.
