An Explanation and An Apology

So, my dearest friends, I feel I owe the world (or my three? four? readers) an explanation for my, and there's no other way to say it, shitiness as a blogger recently. I've done two new posts in the last four months. I'm extremely ashamed. I made a New Year's Resolution to blog at least once a week, and need I say that that is one resolution I definitely haven't kept. So, first thing's first:


Sorry to the Trinidad folks who have no clue what's going on in my life other than the snippets they hear on Facebook and MSN.  Sorry to the lovely Ugandan traveler who is unfortunately not here to kick my butt into writing but probably wants to hear about how her table is doing. I realize now (four months too late) that I should have left a "hiatus" note on my blog after my 15th birthday post. I didn't know I would get so little time (or, to be honest, have so little enthusiasm) to blog over summer and the settling-in period.

Things are finally calming down a little bit here. Having gotten our wireless internet set up, we have gone from having one crappy US State Department-issued laptop, to living in a hotspot (making Flamingo so happy his increasingly-sucky speakers are squeaking more than usual). I hope to get back into what I thought was a good blogging routine from Trinidad.

There's a lot to talk about. There's the Swan Song post (which I promise, Jamiekinz, to not actually call "The Swan Song" cos that'd just be mean stealing), the Leaving TNT post, the approximately one MILLION posts I could write about my summer, all the settling-into-Canada posts, the Tony-leaving post, the My-New-School post. You guys. I have my work cut out for me. To make it easier, I'll try and date things appropiately. This might be a bad idea. Hhm. Like, if you see July 1st, for example, assume I mean all of July. But I'll explain it when we get to that.

So, folks, I apologize once again. I hope this will stop Eddie from cyber-abusing me and my conscience from mentally abusing me. If I'm not forgiven, however, feel free to spam me.

PS: Expect lists. Lots of lists. Okay, I'll try and keep the lists to a minimum. Maybe lists where each point is a paragraph? (Yeah? YEAH? YAY!)
