It took some time to click the “Add New Post” button, but the blogging voices in my head are strong and apparently there’s things I want to write about in order to try to quieten them. I’m not sure this is the right outlet, but it’s what I’ve got.
So then. This all fell apart two summers ago. I suspected the end was in sight as I just didn’t have time to keep writing as regularly as I wanted to, but I thought I’d least get to the end of one last trip report. Once I broke my arm, it pretty much ruled out me having anything interesting to write about.
In fact I just went back and checked what photos I had taken after the accident. Basically nothing. A shot of some floor tiles at The Orleans (they have little silhouettes of their jazz alligators on them, which is pretty cool) and a video of a slot club promotion that I couldn’t even be bothered to watch the whole way through. I wondered whether it might have been possible to reconstruct at least some of what happened in the last 21 days of that trip – but it seems not.
So, much as I hate having left things hanging that way, and I always detested “sorry it’s been so long since I blogged” posts, let’s move on.
In the past 20 months: Claire and I broke up. Katherine and I got engaged. I’ve not played any online poker. Just haven’t felt like it. I took Katherine to Las Vegas and she seemed to enjoy it enough to want to go back again this year. T-44. She wrote her own trip report, so I didn’t have to I transformed my company from being software developers for hire (who dabble with mobile apps) into a games studio (that does a bit of contracting on the side). I expect this is what I’ll be writing about more than anything these days. Oh, and I discovered that I do like sushi after all. Now there’s almost nothing I won’t eat.
So what next? I don’t know. I have ideas in my head that I have to write down. They’re quite likely garbage. You might see some of them. I just needed to post something here first to mark the passing of time, and to see whether anyone was actually still reading. Not that it matters. I just thought that if anyone is still hanging on, you deserved a little update. You got a very little one. Enjoy.
