Two lies and a truth
I haven't gone away, I'm not sick, I'm just really, really busy.
Technically that's not entirely true, for I was away this weekend in Waterford at a family wedding, the wedding of someone in my family to someone who wasn't in my family, ie it was most definitely not an intra-family wedding, more than one unrelated families were involved, though only one person from each got married. This was Waterford, not Utah.
While I was there a number of projects that I have been working on sort of went into overdrive. The first full edit of the feature film I have been involved with for nearly two years now was completed just in time to be submitted to its first festival, enough of a significant milestone for me to overlook the copious amount of work left to do before it's ready to be shown to an actual audience.
Almost simultaneously a second web-based project that I've been working on since the start of the year finished negotiations with a national newspaper for a content syndication trial, which then started four days later. Old media sure can move quickly when it wants to.
While all of this has been going on I've been working with a group planning an event aimed at start-ups in September, which seems so impossibly far away that it is hard to understand the sense of purpose in the orginiser's voice as they explain to me, very slowly and in very simple words, that no, it is not that far away at all.
Also, I've been sick. Not hospital sick but sick enough to wonder if I will make it through a three-hour meeting without actually being sick. Physically, not emotionally, and in case you were wondering I was entirely successful in this endeavor. Thankfully.
So when I said that I haven't gone away, I'm not sick, that I'm just really, really busy, basically I was lying. A lot.
I am pretty busy though.
I'll get back to posting angry bile-filled wrath and ire soon enough, don't you worry. In the meantime thank you all for your patience, you'll get your reward in heaven.
