Lost my voice

As it happens when I don’t update in a while, lots of stuff goes on in my life…interesting stuff that I ought to write up, but don’t then when I finally get up the gumption to write, I’m just plain overwhelmed.

It’s like a larger and more personal dose of the anxiety I get when I haven’t logged on to Facebook in a while and I ought to say “hey” to a bunch of people and comment on their doings and maybe even post something that could pass as amusing, and I just get all thumb-tied (that’s what I’m calling tongue-tied for typing) and can’t figure out a darn thing to say for myself.

Anyway, I’m going to just bust out with some stuff and try to get over the brain-cramp and get back to writing here on the regular.

So, tracking back a bit…

Well, there was Bonktoberfest, which took place in the Ouachita mountains this year. As ususal, there was mayhem…not loads of it, but a little bit. The traditional Doing Something To Todd Posson’s Bike. One year someone shinnied up a tree and hung his bike about 20′ up. This year, he had the audacity to bring an unpainted bike to the shindig, and we had the audacity to autograph and graffiti it up for him.

Getting down the the real purpose of being out there, the mountain biking, I must say it was mighty-mighty fine. Joel and Christi and I rode on the Womble trail on Saturday and the Lo Vista on Sunday. Owing to a very damp fall, the trails were a wonderland of intriguing fungus.


The weekend after B-Fest was a Bike Polo tournament, with players from St Louis and Kansas City. It was a pretty festive affair, and so I made a point to whip out my camera and annoy people.

That will be my last weekend for the foreseeable future when I’ll have Saturday free, so I made a point to enjoy every second of it.

Henceforth, until I get a different job, my days off will be Monday/Tuesday, and I can only got to Saturday/Sunday stuff after 5:00 p.m.

The new job is going pretty well. I’m starting to get to know the ropes and it’s okay and everything. No big thrills, but I expect I’m going to enjoy getting a regular fulltime paycheck and benefits again.

I don’t know what else. I’m suffering a bit of writer’s block because of not writing in forever, plus this job, being a call-center gig, just wears all the words out of me.

I’ll try to come back and be more witty tomorrow or soonish at any rate.
