A very Shallow excuse-fest

If there's one thing I've been asked repeatedly over the past 3 months it's "Who the Hell taught you to park? Do you see those lines? Do you have some aversion to parking inside of them?"

And the occasional person also asks why I haven't been blogging.

I blame both things on the snow. It makes it hard to see the parking spot and it does a real number on my mood. And seriously, how many whiny snowbound posts can one person write? We were both better off.

No need to feel guilty either, because not only have I not been writing my blog, I haven't been reading yours. So we're even.

But Spring is right around the corner. The days are getting longer and the giant snow drifts are melting. The parking spots are easier to see and 9 times out of 10, I park right smack in the middle of them. Things are looking up.

I'm afraid to look at my stats and see if anyone still checks in here. But like Uncle Ben told Peter Parker "With great power comes the ability to park inside the lines and then blog more often." (1) I'll try to rise to the occasion.

1) Or something. What am I, some kind of Spiderman expert?

This is much better than "All Work and No Play Make Jack a Dull Boy"

and much more original.

PUT DOWN THE HATCHET!

I'm sorry to get all gushy in ShallowGalVille, which is a decidedly ungushy place, but I've missed you!! I am so happy to see you back here!! I did a little (invisible and silent) happy dance when I saw your post in my reader.

End of gush. Welcome back. And get your car out of my parking space. My lawn chair was there for a reason.

I understand the adverse reaction to writing winter whines. Good to see you up and posting (even just for today)

I stumbled on you and I think you're brilliant. Also, I sympathize with your mid-winter writer's block.

i'm still here...but i normally stalk you from afar and read through google reader so as to keep my presence unknown (and having written that out..a little creepy)!

We'll just consider this a birthday post. Since you posted on my birthday.

But don't think this gets you out of posting again. OR forgetting my birthday again.

I totally understand about the snow freezing the creative flow! I'm a Creative Writing Major, from califronia, but spent my first year of school at New York University. Couldn't write a thing! Seasonal depression anyone? But back in california, the sun is shining and the juices are flowing again! follow me if you'd like :)
