I’m not ill, dead or cut off from the Internet, people; I’m just ‘blogged out. Yesterday afternoon I found myself writing a piece so monumentally grumpy that I couldn’t bear to publish it. I might put something milder up tomorrow evening, but I think PooterGeek will be taking a few days off after that. You’re still welcome to send stuff in for me to post, but I think it’s time for me to take a chill pill, as the Young People say. There’s too much stupidity out there and I only have a limited amount of time to devote to pointing at it and laughing.

For a change of pace, you could point at the stupidity you observe around you off-line and laugh at it… I don’t recommend you do this in a pub though, as the other patrons may beat the sh*te out of you.
I wish I had your self-restraint. The other day I found myself writing a piece so monumentally grumpy that I nearly lost the will to live in the middle of it. I still hit the ‘post’ button though. At least that saved me revising it.
