Well, at least NOW I'm back

Whew. Now I guess I really am back. It’s funny how the urge to write just seems to dissipate every now and again. Then something will trigger a note inside me (usually a melancholy one – but not always). I used to write when I was depressed and then marveled that it was actually me that did the writing (an almost “out of the body experience “you might say). This time though, it’s more of an upbeat note. I’d been teetering on the edge for a few weeks when I discovered my long anticipated copy of “Oasis of the Zombies” DVD from Netflix comfortably nestled in my mailbox (looking “oh so innocent”).
I don’t know what the hell my wife was thinking when she offered to watch it with me this past weekend. I had sincerely warned her against such a foolhardy leap into unparallel misery. But – what the heck. I popped the disk in and off we went careening into the abyss. Well. No. Not quite. I kid you not when I say we didn’t get past the first FIVE MINUTES. I looked at this thing and just said “Sorry, I can’t do this to you.” And I meant it. It’s truly a testament to filmmaking when a movie can gently tap you on the shoulder; look you square in the eye and seem to say, “I’m sorry, man. Maybe you should watch something else”. I immediately turned it off and cleansed our eyeballs with a couple of Reno 911’s from the 1st season DVD. I’m going to try to get through “Oasis of the Zombies” solo, this weekend. I’ll post the results (if I’m still able)…

Unwanted hair...huh. What I want is a service for unwanted cats.

Anyway, glad you're back, darn you for foiling my invasion plans, hope to see more of your thinking here, and also, some cooperation (with my invasion plans). Also, just to note, I survived the sight of an updated Henry's Asylum with only minimal neural damage.

beckoningchasm - don't think I didn't notice what you were up to. However, I 've always wanted to be part of an invasion. Hmmm...and I do have some unwanted hair. It's rare that things come together so well, no?

I love the lack of a period in anonymous' pitch "Your blog is great if you have unwanted hair...if, on the other hand, you need more hair, or your hair situ is just dandy, your blog stinks on ice!"

In fact, it looks like his entire punctuation array consists of a single comma, a single apostrophe, and a single ampersand. I wonder if he's named them Curly, Larry and Moe?

Nice to have you back, by the way.
