You Don’t Bring Me Flowers Anymore

Yeah. I know. We don’t really blog anymore. No, no. No, we’re not seeing other blogs. Of course we still love you. Seriously. You’re too cute not to love. It’s just…well, we’re busy. Doing what? Doing, um, stuff. You know, work stuff, music stuff, summer stuff. Blogging is really more of a Fall/Winter/Spring activity, don’t you think? Especially in Chicago when it gets so intemperate so fast. Really, by the time November rolls around all you want to do is sit inside with a hot cup of tea and blog blog blog. Or something like that.

Also, we have politics-fatigue. The whole political scene has that post-election nihilism feel. What’s the point in blogging? No matter how many e-mails per day we receive from Move On, we just cannot muster the enthusiasm to do more than sign an e-mail petition or send money. Plus, dude, they send like 8 e-mails a day. Between those and the AmFAR e-mails and the borderline-abusive Emily’s List direct mail campaign, we feel a little numb. We’ve got to save our political blogging energy for when it really matters.

What matters now? Eh. Lots of stuff. Important stuff. Life stuff. But, as loyal readers of this blog know, we rarely blog about that. Why? Because we have friends and family and because this is not an on-line journal. It’s more of a What We Did This Weekend/Look at the Crazy News Story We Found/Hey! Check Out the Trashy TV Show We’re Watching kind of blog. And we like it that way. But we will try to blog more. Honestly. And – Betsy will soon be reaping the blogging rewards of her recent Scavenger Hunt victory – so look for what I’m sure will be fascinating blogging from Betsy/Mike in the weeks to come.

But in the meantime, um, Hey! This is what we did this weekend. And hey! Look at the crazy news story we found! And hey! Check out the trashy TV Show We’re watching!
