fantastically busy

In the remote chance that anyone is wondering, I have not abandoned my brand-new blog. It’s just that I have a more-than-full-time job, and in addition to that I took on a rather overwhelming side project this month which has given me the opportunity to indulge ridiculously materialistic and joyously excessive outburst of seasonal gift-giving, and so I’m working 10 hour days and 5 hour nights and 20 hour weekends. In order to accomplish this, I have had to pare down my daily activities to working, sleeping, and the occasional tweet.

I will take a moment to worry about people getting the impression of me that I value buying things and stuff over … you know, getting more than 5 hours sleep a night or taking time to smell the coffee or roses or whatever. But anyone that says money doesn’t buy happiness should spend a few decades without anywhere near enough of it, and then finally have the ability to lavish iPods and XBoxen and bicycles and big, flat teevees on loved ones — trust me, it’s wonderful. If you still think money can’t buy happiness, you’re doing it wrong. Here, give me yours, I’ll demonstrate.

Not that that makes this easy — to give you an idea of the extent of the self-discipline this involves, I have in my possession right now a brand-new copy of Quantum Gods: Creation, Chaos, and the Search for Cosmic Consciousness, and I am not even letting myself take the time to read it. Not even a little. Well, maybe the foreword. But that’s it. So I will be back as soon as I launch a couple of websites :) Another week or so …
