Hellooo out there

Holy Weblogs Batman!  I haven’t updated this in a LOOOOONG time.  If anyone has actually come here looking for something new and interesting, my bad.  been a wee bit busy!  In fact, looking back, it would appear that I stopped writing in here almost exactly one week after starting my new job back on August 1st.

Admittedly, there was another post that I started back during the first week of September, but I was sitting in a hotel room in Tampa writing it, and then something happened with the web browser and I lost the post.  Twice.  TypePad really needs to create some sort of auto-save or "drafts" folder system.

So let me start off with telling you about another blog that I recently came across that made me laugh out loud.  The Comics Curmudgeon is the perfect companion for those, like me, who find the comics often lacking and sometimes downright puzzling.  I’m as much of a fan of classic comics and animation as anyone, but man, there are some comics that need to go.  Marmaduke, Dennis the Menace, Heathcliff, and the god-awful Family Circus need to be retired.  ENOUGH ALREADY!  They all live in the 50’s unless they need to make a "joke" (I use the term loosely) about cell phones or the Internet.  Then suddenly there’s someone in a hoop skirt ordering their daily milk delivery over the Web or some shit like that.
