Can I Get a Battle Rez?
I've had a couple of emails, and some very pointy pokes from my friends so here's the skinny:

No! I'm not done blogging!

Hiatus? Yes.

I am currently working for the US Census Bureau knocking on people's doors, invading their privacy, asking them annoying questions, and overall just trying to avoid getting shot. I work at random hours based on when people will be home. And I am le tired.

Unlike working in an office, I'm not actually in front of a computer most of the time. I am only playing WoW somewhere between 2-4 hours a week, and it takes a lot of kicking and screaming to get me to do even that! I am woefully behind in my blog reading (see below).

Even before the Census job began, I was suffering badly from WoW Burnout. I don't know if it's the pre-xpack doldrums, or just the raider burnout I was/am feeling, but I go through this on a fairly regular basis. This is just the first time I've had such a long burnout duration while being a blogger... so I suppose it's more obvious!

WoW is still a big part of my life (is that really sad? I don't know), and much like my relationships with anything and everything, it ebbs and flows depending on where my head is that week.

I've been quiet because I don't like making excuse posts. I don't like reading posts that promise someone will be back in a few days, or apologizing for being absent. I'll write when I feel like writing, and I'm not gonna write filler crap in the meantime! If I post something, it's because I feel like it's worth other people reading. Otherwise, you'd read something like "Home ownership is stupid. It's like raiding. Because in raiding, there's always someone stupid who is dying in a fire. Wallpaper should die in a fire. Yeah." etc. (For the record, wallpaper really should diaf, good God!)

So, in conclusion, YES I will be back, NO I have not quit. Oh also, no, sadly I'm not knocked up like any feisty blood elf warlocks you may know (you crazy kids)! I am currently keeping myself frazzled by the following:
  • Knocking on strangers' doors, asking how many people live there, hoping they don't hate me
  • Making a huge mess by attempting to paint bedrooms so we can sell this Godforsaken house
  • Preparing to move about 50 miles south
  • Working out a way to go back to uni to finish up my graduate degree and/or get a Real Job TM
  • Trying to transform a Bachelor Pad House into something someone with any sense might actually consider buying (Sorry honey, but the storm trooper helmets and the alien heads will soon be in storage)
  • Documenting all the house stuff "properly", because writing about remodeling a home is way more fun than actually doing the remodeling of a home.
  • Avoiding my google reader like the plague, because it's really scary...

For shits and giggles, here's some random stuff for your viewing and linking pleasure.

  • My guild is named the Lothar Swingers Club (and we've recently added a few to our roster, so we now actually have ten people!). I'm considering purchasing this residence for our clubhouse. Totally a Swinger's house, amirite?
  • Druids don't approve of low cholesterol diets. Proof.
  • Quit taking smoke breaks during the raid! Start Vaming!
  • WoW situations that make map-lovers sad.

    Your google reader is disturbing, and not for the unread post number. Best of luck helping the socialists count us for the death panels.

    Wow. I guess that listing means you're local.

    I was going to say that there was a swinger's club in the area that closed recently. Gee, I have no idea why...

    Hey, I'm working for the US Census as well! I think the most interesting (and kinda scary) thing is all the houses off the main roads you usually never see, you finally get to visit.

    My favorite thing about this job is I finally get to use the line "Don't worry! I'm with the government and we're here to help!"

    I'm feisty, eh? :P

    And, yes, feed readers get SCARY when you can't get to them for a bit.

    You do know you have scam artists in your guild, right? Like Kohli...
