Bail This Blog Out
A good friend and loyal reader asked me yesterday, "so how's work?"
In these economic times, that's a kind of taboo question. But since I'm pretty sure I'm not in the line of fire for downsizing, I answered it in that sort-of gentle, considerate way. You never know if someone just got the bop.
And with all the economics being bandied about now - and since I took a few econ classes in college, I've got all kinds of smarts about it - you have to watch the consumer price indexes, the LIBOR rate, short-term and long-term interest rates, how's the dollar matching up, etc.
Well, as usual, I done overthunk it.
It was a simple question.
He was asking if I was busy at work because "the blog hasn't been updated since the Red Sox were in the playoffs."
Has it been THAT long???
Yes. Yes it has.
So let's catch up since the Sox got, channeling my inner Chris Tucker, knocked the shampoo out.
1. We got a new President. He a baller.
2. India exploded.
3. Lots of companies that ran themselves into the ground got rewarded for their ineptitude, then they took the money and said "shampoo you, I'm going to get a pedicure and pay for a hummer with your tax dollars."
4. I've worked too damn much.
5. 10 years of optimistic persistence paid off
That's pretty much it.
So I've essentially driven this blog into the ground. Remember when it used to be updated up to three times a day?
Remember when it was cutting-edge stuff? Funny, even?
Ah, weren't those the halcyon days of...2005...
Well, this blog needs to get bailed out. Let me hop on the charter and go petition my case.
But first, off to the capital city in search of the only kind of W you can really embrace.
