Actually, the truth is that, as each day passed without a new post, I felt increased pressure to write something really profound and worthy of my triumphant return. Then I realized that this blog has never been about quality. The thing I always loved about this space was being able to post whatever stupid shit popped into my head without any concern for whether anyone would like or understand it. So, although I may not post as much as I once did, I will endeavor to get back to my roots--goofy nonsense and perhaps more boring videos.
Another reason for the blog's decline is that I haven't felt all that funny lately. This fall it became apparent that I would no longer be able to sustain my struggling architecture business. The building industry sucks most everywhere, but especially here in northern Michigan where there is a glut of cheap real estate on the market. People would rather buy an existing home at rock-bottom prices than go through the headache and expense of designing and building something new. For the time being I am working full-time as a paid ski patroller (while still doing my volunteer duty on weekends like before). It's okay for now, but once the season is over I will again be looking for jobs that aren't really there. Unless, of course, there is some unexpected spike in new construction. It can be stressful, but I am healthy, I have a wonderful, understanding wife, great friends (including my blog-pals) and family, a home that contains ample food and clothing, and a vivid imagination. So please, no pity. Now quick, let us commence with the weiner jokes!
