Annual Summer Hiatus

Taking a summer hiatus, I am.

Traditionally, the summer is cooling off period for my brain. Why? Because I work so damned hard at this blogging thing. This year I've already posted a whole 29 times. That matches the total for the entire 2007 session. While I may have one or two posts that pop up during the summer months, it's unlikely there'll be much until September.

September is a big month for me this year. It will mark the 4th year I have run this blog. Four years! That's right, I may not post a lot but at least the longevity is there so far.

I was sorta hoping to to get to my 200th post (I'm at 176) around the same time but that seems unlikely, as I was worried about posting too much irrelevant material for my own good just for the sake of reaching my 4th anniversary and 200th post all at once. Instead, I'm going to take my cue from Wedding Crasher's Jeremy Grey (aka Vince Vaughn) and leave you with this quote.

"I'd like to recharge my batteries, and shut down the engines, and get myself back to neutral."

In the fall I'll return and be more than ready to begin feeding cyberspace more of my reverent and idiosyncratic thoughts. Until then, keep fighting the good fight. So goodnight and,

"You stay classy, San Diego"
