Bad, bad, blogger
Commandment 11, Section IV, Article C, subheading j strictly forbade me to put sleeping before my blog. And Section VII, Article M, subheading e says, and I quote, "working anywhere in the community of the world before updating your blog will result in a loss of audience, feelings of abandonment, and possible disfunction in future blogging."
What have I done?! I hardly recognize my blog anymore... It's been too long since my last post. I am ashamed.
I've let my blog fall to pieces in order to keep up with *gasp* work, and sleep. Two things I swore I'd never allow to come between my dear blog and I.
I must make amends. Here's a rough draft of the letter I'm working on sending to my blog:
Dear Blog (or shall I call thee Sugarpacket?),
I regret that our relationship has fallen to this state, but I feel that in order to reconcile what remains, I must move towards an apology.
Realizing that I have forsaken the qualities of blogging for mere dozing and pocketchange, I see that I should cling to you as a source of catharsis and entertainment. Instead, I have allowed you pages to become blank, your comments become sparse, and your archives empty. I am sorry, dear Blog.
Please accept my apology, and know that in the future, I will try harder to at least post something simple-minded, as a journal. My heart bleeds at the thought of your barrenness, and I swear to Google that I will not allow it to happen again.

Your absence has left me with very little. The tears from my sadness have created moist droplets of hard sugar from within my packaging.
I can't help but wonder if I have done something wrong to make you leave me like this. I don't want to be one of those hard little sugarpackets at Pizza Hut that never get used. I want to be read, if only by you, for ever and ever.
I, too, swear to Google that I will try my hardest to dry up my tears, but you too must promise to keep filling me with your joyous spirit.

Whoever was clever enough to follow my form, I applaud the response ;^)
(Although I wouldn't mind if the author came forward, I have a few ideas of who it may be...)
And Sugarpacket, I vow to love thee, as I have in the past, I will in the future :^D

That wasn't me, Karissa, if you're wondering.

While I miss your regular posting, Karissa, I do believe that real-life comes before cyber-life, which includes blogging. Sometimes the vicissitudes (I learned a big word the other day) of life take over. And by the way, having something in your life other than your blog is a sign of well-roundedness and a multi-dimensional personality.

Why, thank you, Paige :^) Glad to know that there's someone out there that -almost- appreciates my lack of blogging lately... However, I think I need to post something of substance and soon before my blog slips to the nether-regions of the blogosphere!

You have heard of "writer's block"? Well, sometimes I get "blogger's block". Maybe you do too. But I like to wait until I have something of substance to say or talk about, rather than forcing something just because I haven't written in a few days. Just something to think about.

I'll admit it. It was me. I signed the pseudonym SP.
