I've got a lot going on right now, but don't worry -- all of it's good! The only bad thing is that I feel guilty about not blogging. I know, that sounds egomaniacal because I'm assuming that anyone gives a shit, except that I know a few of you actually do enjoy reading what I write here*.
To you, I say, I appreciate you! It is you who I am telling that I'm going to be gone for a few months, so please don't file a missing persons report. In fact, don't worry at all, because Ah'll be back, in some form... like Obi Wan Kanobi or Gandalf or some such shizz.
Allow me to break this mofo down.
The other night as I was looking for a better job, as I do pretty much 24/7, I came across this weird but oddly "helpful" video. It's got a kind of Japanese, animatronic feel, but also with completely incongruous old-timey music. Whatev -- it's very strange. Production value aside, it struck a chord with me.

|And they're so perky!|
I'm sure you can all see what I'm getting at here. I'm job hunting, yo. So I can't be talking about accidentally getting Brazilian bikini waxes or barfing into my handbag. And so forth.
Yadda yadda yadda, I might start a new blog; I haven't decided. I can't see myself not blogging at all, because I love to write and I've made such good friends through it. I just think the OOBH's day might have come and gone. I've noticed many of my old blog friends have slowed down with their postings lately too, and I totally get it. We're all moving on. We're tired of the same old jokes. Been there/done that. There are only so many times that one can shout "That's what she said" or "Not that there's anything wrong with that," right?
Maybe this is the PMS talking, I don't know. All I know is that I'm putting on my big girl panties and getting myself a new goddamn job this year, no matter what. I'm fed up with My Crap Job, my dears. F-e-d to the U-P. So I'm taking a Brillo pad to my online reputation, adding a little chlorine to my online writing samples, and I'm taking at least the summer off.
|It's not goodbye, it's Smell Ya Later.|
I'll be back after I get whatever new job and/or writing venture awaits me, and if you find yourself missing La Bev, feel free to find me on any number of the gazillion places where I still have an online persona, like LinkedIn, Oddee or Facebook. I'll say yes if you want to be friends, I promise!
PS) The book (which is oddly on sale on Amazon even though it hasn't even been released yet) that I co-wrote is coming out this summer--be sure to scan the credits for your shout-out, my lovely BOOBHs!
* And some of you are just here because you happened to Google "ass bruise" or "Elvira in Spanx" and that's okay too.
