Hello! Yep, I do still exist, and haven’t gotten sucken into a wormhole or fallen off the planet. But I did just do something that will come out in four ways. I just hope it’s not the latter two:
1. The follow-up post to this one will be written very promptly, and will be accompanied by the classic Star Trek fight music, and maniacal laughter and grinning.
2. I will consider myself an absolute idiot and Denebian Slime Devil, and will most likely be too depressed for a follow-up post.
3. The above, plus I will be in tears and regretfully resume my stance as quiet onlooker and fan.
Which will probably not happen, but there is a chance that it will. A slim one, though, so no worries.
All right…….. Now I will not tell why I’m predicting various emotional outbursts, and instead cite from Death by Black Hole about why Star Trek: The Motion Picture’s V-Ger was considered such a failure by some Trekkers!
Naw, I’m not that mean.
Almost, but not quite.
Okay, so earlier, I kinda, sorta, maybe emailed Hugh Howey, my favorite author(Tolkien, Shannon Hale, and Lloyd Alexander follow close behind) about being a beta reader for him, and now I will twitch, and worry, and not pay attention in co-op tomorrow, and my non-existent-but-still-there metal, highly explosive internal organs will melt together into a bomb inside my lungs and explode as I start the next Uprising of the Silo, and, and, and……. none of that will actually happen except the twitching. Sigh.
*Evil-Mom Julie Andrews voice* Okay, I’m outta here. G’night, Y’all!
