The blog is back!
It turns out blogging is a lot like going to the gym. If you ever stop doing it, it's really hard to start back up. So, here I am, starting back up. Breaking a mental sweat.
And I'm already mentally exhausted...so I'll make this first workout an easy one by letting you know what I've been up to for the last, um, eight months. I know my tens of readers are dying to know.
Drum roll, please.............
I have been trying to have the best social life an anti-social person can possibly tolerate. AND IT'S WORKING.
First, I found some nerds. (The intelligent human kind, not the small candy kind.) To be clear, I totally consider myself a nerd, so there's no insult or judgment when I use the term. And really, nerds are the best. They're smart, funny, and super-inclusive. And they wear the coolest novelty t-shirts.
Anyway, the nerds and I have started Movie Church. (Please don't get your knickers in a twist over that name.) It's not an actual church service, obviously. It's a weekly Sunday morning meeting at the place that welcomes everyone and where nerds tend to feel very comfortable: THE MOVIES. We catch a flick (the nerdier the better - very often a superhero flick), have some popcorn, then stand around in the lobby and discuss it for a bit. Then we go on our happy ways. For me, my happy way involves going home for a nap.
And that's it. I've spent eight months going to the movies. Oh, and going to work of course. I'm proud to report that I recently got my 10-year service pin. But mostly I've been going to the movies.
I'll be back soon. Promise. It's an easy promise because I'm also going to start going to the actual gym again, too. There's no doubt I'll have commentary about that to share.
