Well, it looks like I need to come out of my Big Huge Important Project long enough to welcome newcomers who may land here from the tres amusant Rake article. I have not been writing much of late because I've been working my ass off because I'm tired of being fucking poor. Which I really am, still. But I feel I ought to write something here just so there's a new post for those of you who may happen by.

If you should read the Rake article, my favorite part is about my "unflinching grasp on my dignity." Having an unflinching grasp on whatever you want to call it is extremely important to a man who isn't currently getting laid.

And if you are curious about the illustration in the article, it's by Visual Snark, who is the bombdiggity. The image was created by her in response to a comment in a blog entry of mine that I needed "pictures of malefic clowns or squirrels with push-up bras." VS took it upon herself to create an image of both, bless her heart, which thrilled me to no end.

If you are new to the Hulles terrain, please feel free to look around. The early stuff is mostly not very funny as the article implies. Many would say the later stuff isn't either, but those who would say that are icky people.

If you want some background on the stuff I write about, there is a reference I arrogantly call the Hulles Mythos that I try to keep up to date. Hopefully it will help.

Finally, the rest of you should know that I've made a pact with a friend (Emily) to start writing again in August, at least by the middle part. So if you can bear with me, please check back when you can.

I miss you all very much. Except for the icky people, of course.

Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

I'm still alive, and still working feverishly on my work project.

I haven't been able to keep up with my emails, let alone read your blogs, let alone respond to comments, let alone write anything for this blog. But that intensity is what I have to have right now, at least for another week or two.

I'll be better as soon as I am able.
