Stretching the ol’ blogging muscles

Thursday, October 2, 2008 Posted by: Mebz

I haven’t blogged since June!!!  *smacks hand* Bad John King fan, bad John King fan… I’m sorry to the 2-3 people who have missed this little slice of JK-dedicated interweb, but in my own defense I still think that it’s July, so I haven’t missed that much.  I thought I would celebrate my triumphal return to the blogosphere with a new design layout.  What do you guys think?  I’m on the fence.  Regardless, I would like to appease your anger and/or feelings of abandonment with this:

Yeah, I just used an unprovoked John King picture!  What are you going to do about??  Yeah, that’s what I thought…

If you were watching CNN last week, you probably noticed JK was in Montana, trying to get a feel for the political environment out there.  The local news (townies!) got to talk to our guy.  Check it out here.  Did I mention, that there was a video link on the page?  If you can bear local news long enough for a glimpse of the King, go check it out.

‘Nother picture:

So the story of my life in the last 3 months goes like this: My boss retired at the end of June and for six weeks I had to essentially “fill-in” for him (while still doing my job, and without any extra money, in case you were wondering).  Then two months ago they got someone to fill the job, but it seems as if I’ve spent more time, now, trying to tell him what is going on.  Now, you know why I’m having a hard time accepting that it’s October.  But enough about me, how are you doing?  How do you feel?  Are you getting what you need out of this relationship?  Second thought, don’t answer that.

I’m really out of practise with this whole bloggin’ stuff, so consider this post a “warm-up”.  As a way of stretching my unused parts (insert joke here) I give you two YouTube vids of JK & The Magic Map.  The first from today and the second from yesterday:

Hard to believe that this election is nearing the light at the end of the tunnel. (I pray to God that it’s not an on-coming train!)  I can only imagine what JK and the rest of the BPTOT feel like.  Hunker down people!  We can get through this together!

 Here’s to the beginning (again) of a beautiful friendship!

    Hi Mebz,
    I’ve missed your blogging, sounds like you have been very busy over the summer. I applaud your coming back and putting in the time it takes to put together these posts. Wonderful blog and JK has been working hard lately too. Wait until Nov. 4th John might actually wear out that poor Magic Map!
    Good to see you back.

    I haven’t heard from Millie since just after Hurricane Ike went through Houston. I know she was out of electricity for a long while.
    Hopefully the old gang can re-group.
