I’m Alive

I just sent the Guardian rewrite in.  No, I don’t think I’ll write a blog post.

Tough.

You’ll most assuredly survive.

    We will? 😦

  3. Wow. T.I.R.E.D just drips off of that post! Take care of yourself, and we’ll amuse ourselves.

    Now, somebody tie up the SJW, and I’ll get the darts.

    What do you mean, there isn’t any SJW? Didn’t anybody get the Memo? I wrote you to catch one off of some handy college campus!

    Oh, wait. The memo’s caught in the send buffer for some reason. Never mind.

    Anyone else have any entertaining ideas?

    • Well, there’s always the racist New York Times, but nobody should have to buy the lousy thing.

      • They aren’t racist because that was a long time ago and she hasn’t said anything like it since. (That anyone knows.) Besides, she’s not white so how can it be racist especially when she’s saying what everyone knows to be true?

      • The problem with the New York Times isn’t that they are racist (though, being Progressive Left that certainly are). The problem with the New York Times is that they have forgotten how to write a friggin’ STORY. They’re DULL. Every would-be intellectual in America (the real intellectuals have better things to do) reads the Times so that they know what they day’s Talking Points are, so they won’t say the wrong thing at the next Important Cocktail Party. Absent that readership (in addition to the New Yorkers who read it because the New York Post is only slightly better, and doesn’t cover The Arts as well) they would be a small provincial newspaper for no especial importance.

        They are so busy trying to make sure that everything they print is he Party Line that they have forgotten that stories can be INTERESTING. I can just imagine Mencken and the scorn he would pour over them.

  4. Take a break, Sarah. I think I speak for most everyone here when I say you’ve earned it.

  5. Congratulations! Rest. Recover. Catch your breath.

    But if I die due to blog withdrawal syndrome, I’m coming back and haunting you. 😛

  6. You’ll most assuredly survive.

    That which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger?

  7. Yay! Enjoy the relief, the absence of stress, the hollow echoes in the brain . . .

    • Not to hollow. I have two novels hanging fire,and for my sins am being haunted by what I honestly pray are JUST short stories including one that calls itself The Maps of Atlantis and which won’t let me have anything but a “feel”

  8. Enjoy your Dragon Nomination of Uncharted!

  9. YAY!!!! I’m really looking forward to Guardian. I don’t buy e-arcs, but this one is more difficult to resist others.

  10. I’ll survive. After all, I’m a prepper. I’ve got plenty of stories to read in my Kindle.

    On the Western front, looks like a couple of battles between the Antifada Leftists and sympathizers, and Right occurred in Portland Oregon and Berkeley California this weekend. Not sure which groups started the violence, but it sure seems like the Antifada committed the most violence.

    And kudos to the good guy in that Florida park that shot the bad guy.

  11. Well! Be like that. We’ll just take our comments and go home. Nyah! 😛

    Seriously, congrats on finishing and on the Dragon nomination.

  12. Congrats on finishing! I hope you get the chance to relax and have some fun.

  13. Yay! Congratulations.

    I’m kinda ahead myself; I’m expecting everything (two or three projects) to come crashing in any day now…any day…soon.

  14. Professor Badness

    Yes, do relax. We will wait patiently.
    (Or as patiently as this crew can accomplish. Boredom does lend itself to explosives and genetic manipulation with this group.)

  15. I am also alive, though tired. A night’s work, packing, a trip from southern MN to central WI. And a diversion to Stevens Point for more Malort.

  16. Aimee Morgan

    Well yeah, of course we’ll survive. I mean, what other option is available to us? Zombies can’t read, and Audible won’t give them accounts (I’m sure that’s some sort of aggression, micro- or otherwise), so if we don’t survive we don’t get Guardian.

    Go. Take a nap. Do something that relaxes you, like refinishing a floor or something. I’ll just sit here in my corner and survive.

      Actuarial tables seems to suggest that the chance of survival approaches zero by age 200. I think I will not survive indefinitely.

      I would be surprised if the length of today’s blog post has any impact on the timing and cause of my passing.

      • Actuarial tables are only good at describing aggregate behavior. They’re practically useless for individuals.

        Which gives me hope that I can achieve the improbable, and force them to raise the high end and measures of central tendency of the tables.

  17. Drink a bottle of wine, put your feet up, and enjoy the moment!

    “Blazing Saddles” is probably next, followed by “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.”

  19. No post? How will I survi…[agh] thump……………….*

      Phantom: Your blog needs a correction, I think. The election that will potentially determine trump’s impeachment, is this year, in three months.

      • Corrected! You were one of ten people to see that mistake. ~:D The Phantom Soapbox is not a must-see destination on the Web.

        • BobtheRegisterredFool

          Also, I suspect that the actual impeachment and removal from office of President Trump isn’t actually in question. I think the questions are impact on rest of the administration politically, and the long term political fallout of Trump.

          • This is an interesting issue. I don’t see where the Dems are getting anything good out of their extended freakout the last two years. Facebook lost 20% of its share price last week, possibly when word got out to the Advanced Warning crowd what they were planning to do with Alex Jones yesterday. One doesn’t like to imply insider trading, but the confluence of events certainly looks interesting.

            So what’s in it for them, really? They’ve whipped up this frenzy, what good does it do them? All that is really happening right now is that #WalkAway is trending hard.

        • It should be. Some of us are working to make it so.

          • Some of you are doing very well at it, I must say. I can immediately tell when you link one of my posts, its like Niagara Falls opened.

            I certainly appreciate it. That’s why I try to be sure and thank you every single time. Very exciting to have that many people read something I’ve written, and then comment intelligently on it as well.

            I’ll see about getting that first book out. The procrastination is becoming ridiculous.

  20. You brought this to mind. Thought I would share

  21. richardmcenroe

    Sarah, Editorial called. They’ve got a suggestion about resetting the book in Singapore…

  22. Guardian’s done! YAY!!!

    As long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive . . .

    • “Stayin’ Alive”: the song immortalized by the American Heart Association. It is the bass tempo you used to use for chest compressions. (IIRC you do it a little slower now.)

    OT (if anything is on-topic today), but I see that a mob of violent white people attacked an African-American woman today, all the while chanting “***k White Supremacy!” What’s even more incredible that certain people, who normally never miss a chance to condemn violence against blacks, are curiously silent on the whole affair.

    If I wrote something like this into a story, an editor would reject it for being too absurd.
