m.i.a.

to everyone wondering where the heck i've been, i am not dying or ill or sad or anything, contrary to what you may have interpreted from saturday's post -- that was something i had to get rid of for eternity. but i always welcome good vibes and hugs with open arms, so feel free to throw those out there at any time and know that they're always reciprocated.

truth be told, i'm working a day-ish shift as of late (hey, anytime i have to be out of the house before noon is a dayshift for me). the getting up early is really cutting into my sleeping in time, which is REALLY cutting into my staying-up-all-night time and generally just putting a cramp in my nocturnal style. and the walking 20 blocks one way sort of leaves me pooped. on top of that, i'm entranced by an extracurricular project that there seems to never be enough quality time for, so i'm swamped, but for those of you who knew me in my prime, you know i wouldn't rather live any other way but sleepless and stressed out.

but don't you worry, this job is like the earth, unpredictable and ever rotating, so i'm sure i'll be cycled right out of this and back to dungeon duty soon enough.

i'm still faithfully trying to read your stuff, and laughing, even if i don't always get a chance to put in my two cents. i'm sad that i haven't been able to comment much, especially about my girl Ale's foray into the world of international radio and Omar's new photothingy (both of which i haven't even been properly able to investigate as of yet).

i miss all of you guys.

p.s.: congratulations to all my beloved sox fans! in this city, i have to claim neutrality, and i love it when any of our teams are doing well. you can thank the celebration of that as well as technical issues for the reprieve i got for this post as well as the heart attack i will have later because we have to do an insane amount of work in even less time.

I didn't know it was possible to be neutral when it comes to sox vs. cubs.

Anyway, we miss you too. And it's good to hear that you're not dying, ill, or sad.

been a bit hesitant to comment on the last few posts simply because there was nothing substantial to say. glad you're still posting and good luck with all the work.

whats the extracurricular project?

i used to be a HARD CORE sox fan. but that was back in the day. i'm still happy for them though, even though i'm a yankee girl now...

wow, i should've known this day would come with the sox. you just try so hard to wish it for the cubs, but they seemed doomed at times.

i used to work evening shifts also and it was nice to not wake up early in the morning to go to work.

when can we make like europe and move to the 30 hour work week? i vote "yea" on that matter.

30 hours work week!?! I want some of that action.

Good to see you back Cadiz and I'm glad things are well!

omar said...

I'm having a 5th grade moment here.

I seriously misread Jas' line about being a HARD CORE sox fan.

haaaaa! HARD CORE sox fan totally fucked with me as well....
what a difference one vowel makes.

Jon said...

Yeah, me too! I was like, “HARD CARE sox fan?” What does that even mean? I guess that they care about the sox a lot… but no, she got it right, hard core is the correct terminology, I’m the one that misread it… silly eyes of mine… they see what they want to see. I have selective vision… what are you going to do?

As for the post, Seriously Cadiz. You can’t just take a few days off posting whenever you feel like it. You have a responsibility to the readers, and you shouldn’t take that likely. (By the way, I just submitted my application for Hypocrite of the Year) But do tell, what is this project that has you all tied up?

Jon said...

and by likely I meant lightly... did I mention that I have selective typing too? Yeah, I'm all about selections...
