If it’s another shitty winter I might just be in line for a Pulitzer.

So, I took the summer off from blogging. There are a few reasons for that.

First of all, it was SUMMER. Living in a frozen arctic tundra such as mine, I feel obligated to spend the lousy three months of warm weather we get a year outside and NOT in front of a screen (unless it's to watch the new season of Big Brother, but even then I usually just record it to watch when it's raining out. This was kind of a boring season, don’t you think? I hated all those fucking people). Plus, I’m a lot happier in the summer. We’ve been hanging out at the lake, barbequing some steaks, drinking some beers, having a few parties on the deck...you know….FUN stuff.

As it turns out, carefree happiness doesn’t breed good writing material. I have had no motivation whatsoever to blog about a goddamn thing.

This morning I woke up and it was so cold in my house I had to turn my furnace on.

And it really pissed me off.

Damn, furnace already. The rain has already started here, but at least it's around 20.

Sorry about the sucky weather - but I'm really glad you're back!!!

Well, getting pissed off gave you something to write about. I'm sorry you got pissed off...but I'm happy to see you around!

You are 100% right: carefree happiness doesn’t breed good writing material. Welcome back!

I haven't been into blogging lately either. It's been a funny summer that way. I notice lots of bloggers I follow are MIA—hopefully recharging. Nice to see you back!

I knew that was my problem sometimes. You need to piss me off more.

Turning on the furnace in September is just criminal.

We have the opposite problem. We have to stay inside all summer because it is too damn hot outside. I'm looking forward to turning off the air conditioner and getting outside.
