Hey everyone, I wanted to take a quick moment and update you all on the status of this blog. I HAVEN’T stopped. As you’ve seen me say before, it was originally my intention to have the first book finished by the time I started grad school, but that obviously didn’t work out. I just never realized how hard it would actually be for me to get through this thing. I know, first world problems and all that – but it’s true. Not only do I have a hard time reading more than one chapter in a short time, but when I started getting such positive feedback on the blog, I wanted to make sure I was putting my all into every chapter.

Still, I was relieved to only have a few chapters (and the promised magazine review) left once school started, and thought I might be able to wrap it quickly. Unfortunately, real life dealt a blow to that plan a couple days ago, when my family had to rush my father to the emergency room. On Tuesday afternoon, my father passed away with us at his side. I’m not big on asking for sympathy or anything, but I just want everyone that is reading this blog and enjoying it to know that my sense of humor was shaped by my dad, so in a way this site wouldn’t exist without him. I’m still trying to figure out what happens next, but for the moment I’m just helping my family deal with everything.

I hope to get back to this blog and finally begin wrapping this damn book up sometime next week. Can’t believe I’m saying it, but the writings of E.L. James will probably be a welcome relief and diversion for me then. Till then, I just want to thank everyone for continuing to read my nonsense, and especially for linking to it, telling your friends, etc. My hope when I started this was to just maybe reach more than the usual group of real-life friends who checked out my other blogs. I guess it worked. I still can’t get over how many hits I’ve gotten here, and I love getting comments and feedback from everyone. If my misery with this crap has ever entertained you even for a second, it’s worth it, and I thank you for sticking with me even as the project became far less frequent and more unreliable than I ever intended. I’m still trying to figure out a way to ensure that when I tackle the next two books (and yes, I WILL), it will go more smoothly. But we’ll cross that sex-swing when we get to it.

See you soon, with Chapter Twenty-Three.

    Appreciate your notice as to why no recent updates on the blog. I wanted you to know I have never laughed so hard as I have with your chapter reviews. The images & gifs you post to go along with your narrative make for hilarious reading.

    Take care, come back when you’re ready. Pretty sure we’ll still be here waiting.

    I love your blog! And my sincerest condolences for your loss. I don’t know what I would do as well. My dad shaped a big part of who I am as well. I’ll be patiently waiting on more posts from your blog, so take your time. In the meantime, I’ll be spreading word about your hilarious take on Fifty Shades.
