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.

May I be the first to congratulate you on your article. Cristina paints a lovely picture of you! Glad to see you back here, even if it is fleeting for the moment.

Hey Hulles! Hope you are doing just fabulous and I must say I miss entries and your comments on my blog. Brazil says "hi."

Eva Gale said...

*smoochies* to you.

Looking forward to August, then :-)

Meant to ask you if you saw Richard Thompson ?

He played Cardiff last week - totally astonishing . He gets better with age.

Welcome back, even if it is just temporarily. We are all anticipating your full mid-August return...

Also, congrats on the Rake article.

You have dignity?

Congrats on the article.

Hulles said...

Jen, thanks. Yeah, Cristina did a nice job with the article.

T.,I miss you too. Say hi to Brazil for me....

Eva, smooches back. I can't wait to start participating in the community again.

VS, me too.

Merlin, no, I missed Richard Thompson. Someday....

H, thanks lots. I anticipate it as well.

Stephen, no, such scraps of dignity that I maintain are drug-induced. And thanks for the congrats.

fantastic article, hulles!

Hulles said...

Thanks, Anne. I miss you. XOXO.

I have changed my underwear MULTIPLE times since I last commented but I am soooooo happy to see that you are back, even if it is for a drive-by posting.

PS - I'm moving part time to Brooklyn in two weeks (for a year) so maybe we could catch a ballet in the city when you are rich...?

Lollie said...

BTW - great article!

You write one...they write one about you. Pretty soon you'll be hobnobbing with Rupert fucking Murdoch and owning the entire GD world.

And your trusty readers get a good review too, could this be any better?

Hulles said...

Lollie, I miss you lots. I'll meet you in NYC just as soon as I am able, believe me. I can't wait. And thanks.
