A Public Service Announcement

Over the next few days, I may not be as prompt with my posting as I usually am. "What," you say? "You post on a regular basis?" To that I reply, "You're an asshole."

Assholes aside, I'll be out wandering for the entirety of the next week. We got the whole week off for Thanksgiving this year and we're heading up to visit K's parents this weekend before I head off into the woods with Mickey for a little backpacking, if you know what I mean. (I mean walking around in the woods with a backpack in case you don't actually know what I mean.) I've learned from past experiences that you will be greatly disappointed if you see any bizarre white penis-shaped mushrooms in the woods and you don't take a picture because Mickey took a picture and you're trying to not look like a tool by taking all of the same photos he is and he assures you that he'll send you the photo. Mickey is a liar and and it's been five months now and still I have no photographic representations of said phallic fungus. Damn right I'll be taking pictures this time around, so hope for a photo post sometime between Wednesday and the next Wednesday.

After I get back out of the woods and pick up wife and the little blonde things that always seems to be following us around begging for food and preventing us from having any fun, we'll be heading off to a different type of camping for a family Thanksgiving. We'll be staying with my mom's side of the family in one of the state parks up there in a pop-up camper for the last three nights of the week before coming home to get ready to slog through the last three weeks of work before the two weeks off for Christmas. It'll be tough, but I will survive. I may end up soulless and broken, but my vitals signs will be evident.

And if you haven't noticed, I really hate staying at home when I don't have to. I'd have moved once already and be making plans for another move after next year if K didn't think stability was important for a family and her sanity.

Anyway, the whole point of this post was to let you know that I may be taking advantage of one of the loopholes in Blog 365 this week. I'm allowed to backdate posts as long as they're written off-line on the day in question. You may not see the posts on time, but they'll be crafted and waiting for access to the Internet tubes. I know you're anxious. If you show me your secondary sex characteristics, I may work a little harder to get posts up on time.

Stability, shmability.

You're spending Thanksgiving in a pop-up camper? What are you going to do, roast a turkey over an open fire?

Mickey said...

Secondary sex characteristics. Do I have any of those?

Dude, all you have to do is remind me. Geez.

Just do us a favor and make sure some of them are photo heavy or just plain short. It makes it easier to catch up, especially when the rest of us don't have three weeks for vacation time coming in the next eight.

Loopholes are for losers. You should dictate your posts by cell phone to a volunteer typist. (Not it.)

Not that any of us will be around to read them.
