According to my web logs, two of you have syndicated me as “rantsnrevel” (Vicki and Jen) and somebody else has me syndicated as “ptomblin”. I don’t know who it is who has me syndicated as “ptomblin”, but if you were to switch to using “rantnrevel”, your syndication cost would go down (and so would Vicki and Jen’s).
It’s been bloody cold this week. Rochester is a lot damper in the winter than Southern Ontario, so it really cuts through you. But it reminds me of the winter of 1980-81.
I haven’t updated in a while. There are a couple of reasons for that. One is that I’m busier than shit – too much to do at work, too much to do regarding Maddy’s memorial. Another is that both of my kids appear to be in total melt-down mode – one is in hospital because of anorexia and the other seems to think “not getting caught” and “doing the right thing” are totally equivalent. Another is that my dad apparently found the blog and I’m a little freaked about that, but I’m coming to terms with it. I try very hard not to censor what I write here – it’s done more for self therapy than for anybody else’s consumption, and I’m quite likely to say stuff that I wouldn’t say to people’s faces (and then say the exact opposite in a subsequent entry – I’m nothing if not self-contradictory). So guess what, dad: If you don’t like what you see here, don’t read it.
