See, up until about May 2009, I blogged sporadically...during a GOOD month. It seemed weird and lame to write about, as Elaine put it on SEINFELD, "the excruciating miutiae of everyday life".
"Today I wanted a ham sandwich, but we were out of ham, so I had a chicken sandwich instead, and it was good even though we were out of mayo."
Really? How is that interesting? To anyone? I mean, it's my life and it's not even interesting to me. Ye gods.
But around that time I noticed my PR firm and my assistant. That's not to say I hired them last May; I hired them both about a year before last May. But I noticed them last May. You following this okay? Don't fret; I'm not, either.
The thing I noticed was that because I was stupidly fortunate enough to hire a PR firm and an assistant with money earned writing about ditsy vampires and grumpy mermaids, I was free to do things I normally didn't do. Like blog about ham sandwiches.
Thus! I'm acknowledging my great good fortune; I'm blogging. Even though there hasn't been much going on in the last month except writing, blogging about writing, giving speeches about writing, and blogging about writing about writing, I'm right here in the trenches, dammit, blogging away.
Also? We're out of ham and roast beef. And chicken! So I'm just gonna whip up a batch of brownie mix and have batter for lunch. Liquid lunches are supposed to be good for you, right?
