A Crappy Place to Write

Saturday, January 05, 2008

Welcome to 2008, everyone.  I'm sure you've noticed the lack of writing over the past couple of weeks and I would like to offer up an explanation.  You see, with the holiday season upon us, I've been spending a lot of time in Hemet; a situation that treats creative genius much like a baby treats a diaper.


Sure, at first glance, the answer seems obvious: with little to do in Hemet, what the hell would I write about?  A possibility, yes, but I don't think that's the real reason.  Instead, I'd like to propose that the opportunity cost of being creative in Hemet is simply too low.  When I was in New York and opted to sit down with a pen and paper, I was choosing to forego all that the city had to offer for an afternoon with my thoughts (or giving false hope to Craigslist perverts, as was more often the case).  In Hemet, I give up nothing; unless you can quantify being cougar bait at the local watering hole.


So, there it is.  Look for some interesting content in the coming month(s).  I'll be moving out to Vegas in a couple weeks (more on that soon) which should provide plenty of inspiring fodder.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but you're too old to be cougar bait. May want to look into botox, little buddy.

    It is all relative, my friends, it's all relative...
