Still alive, sans cake

I’m almost–almost!–half way through War and Peace. That’s how long it’s been since I’ve, you know, said hi, here. I’m also about halfway through a semester’s worth of a drawing class. I’m at the beginning of some other cool things that are starting up that I hope to be able to share with you in the not so distant future. I’m really–really!–working my way around to the redesign of this blog I’ve been threatening for an age and that might even motivate me to stop wasting time on Twitter and start wasting my time back over here again, because, really, Twitter? Really? Of course I say all this as I am also dangerously close to complete domination of the game Lumines on the PS3; having just finally beat the Dig Down mode for the first time earlier this week, I can say that there’s only a few more things left for me to do in the game before I can claim I am the greatest Lumines player of all time. Seriously, though, I’ve logged almost as much time in this game as one might for a small-ish RPG. It was a thing for a long time and then I got off the thing and now I’m back on the thing. It’s intense. Yeah.

Yeah. But I’m also still thinking about that long list of long books I want to read this year and the road through them leads through the rest of War and Peace which yes is long and sometimes slow and certainly Russian and all that but it’s also engaging and moving and question-raising and funny and all sorts of things people want in books they want to read. I’m glad I’m taking my time with it but I’m also wishing I was taking more time with it, like, on a regular basis. But, other stuff, and such. Long and short of it being that I remain an absolutely terrible person from whom to receive book recommendations right now, if not for the foreseeable future. Like, oh yeah, well, I’m reading this little book, guy you might have heard of. Tolstoy? And again in a month or two from now?

Anyways, Twitter still happens, and I’ve been posting dribs and drabs of my drawing work over on Tumblr, if you’re inclined toward that stuff. And then this place is either going to disappear in the night in complete shame or it’s going to finally be the place where I figure out how to talk about merging all these various things I’ve been thinging lately or it’s just going to keep on going with the apologies and the silence and really whichever option is probably okay, no? Yes? Does anybody even use blogs anymore? The future is so 2007, isn’t it?
