Blogging about not blogging

Ah, my poor neglected blog.

Because I'm engaging in one of my favorite pasttimes (procrastination), I thought I ought to at least blog about not blogging.

I've not been blogging lately (my second favorite pasttime--stating the obvious).

Mostly it's because I'm under a bit of a gag order due to a pending article for which I was recently interviewed.

I've also had friends in town. My dear friend Jules, from Australia, will be here for the rest of December, and Peterson was just here as well.

He came here partially to prop me back up after the interview, which lasted two days. I'm extremely grateful for him and other local friends who have supported me during this process. I'll be free to say more about it when the article is published...but for now, I'll just say that it was an interesting experience. I'm hoping that the end result will be positive, and that my story might be useful to others either in a similar situation, or to family/friends of those trying to come to terms with their sexuality.

I've also had the opportunity to meet up with some other great internet people lately. Peterson introduced me to Denver blogger Mike Ditto, who seems like a very cool guy (plus we got to talk some Quark shop talk). Hope to see him around town in the future. Peterson, Jules and I also met up with blogger Eugene who kindly drove us up to Loveland to see our mutual friend, Kennan, from perform in a Christmas Concert. Kennan and Eugene are both such cool guys and it was nice to spend time with them.

Anyway, that's my story about why I haven't been blogging and I'm sticking to it.

I'm running late (those who know me would never have guessed), so I'm off...back to the land of "not-blogging."

Hope everyone has a very happy holiday season. Or, at least tolerable. Hey...I'm a realist. Oh, and for some funny photos of kids scared of santa, check out this photo gallery (hat tip: Sara at


  1. Wondered where you'd got to!

    Hope that you have a really good holiday season, and that the interview turns out well for everyone.

    Thanks for your seasonal wishes... I'm hoping that it turns out better than tolerable!

  2. Okay, I love the pic where Santa's crying along with the children. No doubt that's how I'd feel too.

    Saturday was fun - thanks for getting the ball rolling, and for bringing Peterson and Jules along.

  3. ROFL those Santa pictures are awful! Poor kids...

    I figured out the nonexistence of Santa when I was two, because my parents failed to provide an adequate explanation when I questioned how Santa could be coming down the chimney when we didn't have a fireplace.

    So I guess you could say I've always been a skeptic. :-)

    It was sure nice to meet you!

  4. Merry Christmas cuz. Hmmm, "cuz" doesn't look as cozy typed out as it feels when said. Anyway, I will call you tomorrow.

    "America's Most Wanted" Santa pic had me laughing so hard I think I woke up daughter. Daddy is trying to get her to sleep this Christmas Eve, and I heard her whisper "I HEAR SANTA!!!" as I tried to stop snorting while I laughed.

    Love you lots.

  5. Thanks Jimbo! Hope you had a good Christmas...

    E...yeah I can't imagine being a mall santa. Horrors. Thanks for driving us. It was awesome to see you, as always.

    Mike, definitely great to meet you. I trust we'll see each other around town, or at least the blogosphere...and yes, I can see you being a skeptical and incredibly bright 2-year-old! :)

    Hey rock. That's hysterical about your girl...Kills me. I see from the photos you e-mailed that you and her Dad were good santas.... :)
