Welcome to my reality. This is the funk that I find myself in. It has been twelve days since my last post. Each day that has gone by I have told myself to get on and write. But strangely I have had no energy to do much of anything. Work has been extremely busy. I think that that has been the greatest contributor to my exhaustion. Add to that the classes that I have been taking and the fact that I am a husband, dad, gardener, mechanic, handy man, drink maker, cook, and over all house man-whore. Understandably I have become a completely lethargic couch turd. I have lost touch with current events, sports, my blog mates, and reality TV. For fucks sake I haven’t had the time or energy to drink beer! How fucking pathetic can a guy be? Maybe there is something to be said for “Crank” after all. Because I’ll tell you one thing if I have one more cup from Starbucks, it’s going to eat a four-inch hole in the bottom of my stomach. Which will really suck because I’m sure that I will be too lazy to get my ass out of bed to go to the E.R. I took this photograph on the fourth of July.

Clearly Harry has more motivation than I do. Hell, look at the work he put into his sign! Two color print on custom stock. He even did a spell check for Christ’s sake! “Woe is me. The homeless have become more productive than I.” WTF!!! Now if you’ll excuse me I need to roll over. I’d hate to get a recliner sore on my ass.

Somehow, I am no doubt living vicariously through you, I have been in the same funk since they let school out for the kids. Vacation was a drag and bored outta my skull with kiddie activities. My wife wonders why the Crown Royal bottle keeps showing up full. Its because its a new one, I killed off the last one..

Hey, there's only so much room in the free time bucket. Unless you make your living at it, blogging should be one of those things you do when you have the time and inspiration. Otherwise it's just kind of counterproductive.

I hope your funk evaporates soon :-)

Wow, don't even feel like drinking beer?? You are in worse shape than I thought.

Hang in there!

What a pickle:

Starbucks will rot a whole in your gut, while crank will make your teeth drop out.

What a kick in the pants.

Blogging, schmogging. Much as it gets a bad name (typically by the mainstream media), the only really bad thing caused by blogging is inspiring guilt when one doesn't do it.

We need to just get over that.

Now about this lack of beer: That is a serious problem, for which you should seek immediate professional assistance.

(Bartenders are professionals.)

Two birds, one stone. Or bottle, as it were.

Lifer: I have a pretty vivid mental image of anyone who lives vicariously through me. It involves re-runs of Jerry Springer and adult size diapers. Please tell me that you're not there?

Jeff: I so agree. . .My mental self wants to write but my fingers aren't havin' it.

Cherry: Once again, I have to blame my body and not the mind. I would love a Sam Adams right about now. I'm just to lazy to drive to the store. How about "I buy, you fly"?

Jenji: Hmmmm a pickle sounds good right about now.

Doug: Do they make house calls?

Everyone: Thanks!

I think Harry needs to roll his ass to McDonald's to get himself a job! I hope u feel better soon :)

If I saw that dude I'd be like, "Let me borrow your sign and I'll come right back". Then I'd frame the sign and hang it over my mantle. And of course never return.
