snapshots of an idle mind

dear blog

Filed under: Uncategorized — sassinak @ 1:42 am

i’m sorry.

i’ve been neglecting you.

and don’t think i’m not aware of it, i know that i haven’t been visiting the blogs of my regular folks and that i haven’t been wandering by my favourite corners of the blogverse quite so often. i know that i’m still reading everything but that i’m for whatever reason not really commenting.

and you, i’ve been not posting to you and not responding to comments as much as i wish to. and i’m sorry.

i’m sorry blog, i haven’t meant to neglect you but i’m having an incredibly introspective patch you see, and last time i had one of these i was driven to write and write and write. but this time?

yeah, not so much. i’m actually reading books and watching television instead and i’m really, really enjoying it. i’ve watched the entire last season of grey’s anatomy and i’ve watched the new episodes of several shows and i’ve read more fantasy novels in the last month than in the last year.

basically? i’ve been hanging out with my brain and myself and it’s been really good… but i haven’t felt like hanging out with my blog.

i don’t really know why really, i just haven’t felt like it. it’s kind of like when you have a best friend and you happen to not see them very often for a while. it’s kind of like that.

it’s not that i’m not in love with you dear blog it’s just that well, i’ve been in the mood to lie on the couch and since i don’t have a laptop and you’re stuck being attached to the desktop means you’ve been being sorely neglected.

and it’s not that i’m not reading all the comments and all the posts on all of the blogs that i usually read because i have. all of them. but i’m not commenting.

or if i am it’s short and sort of obligatory.

anyway y’all and blog, i guess the point is that i really and truly love all of you and i’m okay and everything but i’m on a bit of a hiatus okay? i’ll be around just a bit less…. around.

hopefully y’all will still be here when my brain returns. and who knows that could be two hours or two weeks or two… well who knows. but trust that i feel as attached to this place as ever and that i will absolutely be posting and commenting but that for a while i’ll seem a little distant or somehow less here.

it’s okay, i’m just in a little cocoon and letting my brain percolate.


love always



  1. As with any relationship it’s always good to have your own “alone time” away from each other.

    It’s healthy.

    Enjoy and I’ll see ya when you get back!

  2. ‘s all good. I just hope you feel better. Hopeful.
    I have been neglecting many things myself in light of this move. Time to buckle down to real work. I have an open ticket that my employer doesn’t know about ;)
    BTW you are still seeking a shade for your lamp yes? Thing is, I thought it would be easy to build. Not so. I tried to manipulate fabric. I don’t like how it has turned out. I’d like to try paper. Thoughts?

    BTOtherW, other work of yours is in progress.

    BTotherotherW, get your day-planner & call me for a next week meeting. I think we can make it just as efficient as yesterday only for different projects :)
    note: by then I should be on M-F 9-6 all the time.

  4. It’s great to have down time, from anything. So are you getting all excited tha season 3 of Grey’s starts Thursday? I have to wok but I have time shift so I can watch it and tape it if I want :)

  5. madame: you know, i think you’re right… too much time with anyone isn’t healthy…

    i’m not really leaving just being a little less present.. but i will!

    hubris: i think i need to get past the kind of hopeful i’ve been and start to hope for different things, and i think that until that happens this mood will stick.

    and where will this open ticket take you?

    and yes, i want my lampshade back… you know the original shade was paper…

    other work hmmm? interesting :)

    i thought we were hooking up monday but it seems you’re working? um monday night?

    kj: thanks babe.

    amber: i am SO excited about season three of grey’s… the vcr is already set and everything!

    i set everything to tape, even if i’m home to watch it… that way if the phone rings i can answer if need be :)

  6. i know what you are going through. for me, i feel like i have nothing to say. nothing stimulates me enough to write like i used to. plus it’s always easy to get addicted on tv series! by the way, House Season 3 is out! i remember reading somewhere you do watch House, sass….

    anyway be well and come back soon.

  10. nerd: yeah i’ve seen your blog have it’s ups and downs of you posting, it’s why i know my blog will be okay even if i’m not here quite as much.

    i have seen the first two episodes of house season three and i’m a tiny bit disappointed actually. hoping it gets better… and it’s still better than most of the crap out there even if it’s not as perfect as it was.

    thanks darlin’ :)

    hunee: *perk* *perk*

    *gets terrible chicken image*

    i will still probably blog more than you but not as much as i once did. y’all have probably noticed this already. (i know y’all have because most of the usual suspects haven’t commented yet… and people used to check here much more frequently)

    dzer: *snerk*

  13. terry: you’re right it is… it’s funny all the forms that it takes.


    hunee: absolutely that is silly… so?

    yay twice!

    jmai: *huggers* i’ll comment still, just not as much… :) and i’ll be back i promise.

  14. But… how will I live vicariously through you without your blog?!!??

    Oh well, change is good. I to will be interested to see what emerges out of this pause.

    I was thinking about gabriella’s comment from the last comments about women seeing things much clearer after menopause when they are no longer driven by biology (I hope I’ve summed that up okay). Anyway, if this is true… does that mean that men are never able to think clearly?

  15. So…ummm…yeah…the thing is we love you and we want you around…but also loving someone means putting their best interest before your desires. So, I’ll be happy you are happy whatever amount of blogging/commenting you want to do.

  18. clarity: um. one of us will pick up a phone? which i suck at :)

    yeah i will too, i feel so introspective it’s odd, like i’m having trouble hanging out with my friends.

    i don’t know, i know some awfully clear headed men and some afwully muddle headed old women so it’s hard to say really.

    nat: thanks, that’s how i feel too. and i just need to chill somehow. i’m writing a post about it.

    i feel all right anyway :)

    leigh: nice, i hope they’re having fun!

    jmai: *snerk*

  19. I took some time off too. “Real” world was seemingly more compelling and constraining on my time in the late summer.
