The Work, She is Over

Today was my last official day in the Los Angeles office. Following a short sabbatical, I'll move back down to part-time from Oklahoma, where the wind truly does come sweeping down the plains. Now that the nastiness is behind us, blogging shall resume in high fashion. Topics to look out for in the following weeks are:

• Driving 20 hours straight with two dogs
• My students are stupid, here’s why
• Bee-Spot & Mr. Shain do yoga (with pictures)
• Milwaukee and me, a retrospective

Also, thank you for all of your letters and phone calls asking if I was okay. Indeed I am. Also, screw you for not calling.

20 hours with two dogs sounds SO FUN!!!

d said...

alright. alright. i didn't call. but that's only because i just didn't care all that much.

Wait, you were gone? Hee hee.

Blythe is awesome. Although photos of the two of you doing yoga are a requirement, since I need some good laughs.

Mr. Shain said...

::stew:: oh, it is

::d:: bite me (but so true)

I didn't call because I don't know you, so it would have been awkward.

blythe said...

not as awkward as knowing him and not calling...

luv u shain!

The Yellow Dart said...

Those aren't dogs.

I'll miss you when you're gone...

SEND ME PICTURES FROM MIDSUMMER!

crimenotes said...

I called you.

I called you an assface. Did you get my message?

blythe said...

oh crimenotes.

CrimeNotes said...

Yeah, that was a belligerent message that I left.

Sorry, dude. It sucks. On a brighter note, you'll be in closer proximity to your good friend Blythe, and when the wind comes sweeping down the plain you're in a great position for kite-flying. Plus, who needs L.A.? Joan Didion and Nathaniel West don't make it sound attractive.

The Yellow Dart said...

Are you still driving? Or are you dead in a ditch somewhere? And your dogs are munching on your ankles?

blythe said...

i was wondering the same thing. i camped out all day yesterday in your driveway waiting for your "triumphant" return, but alas, nothing. eh, oh well.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Did you stop for some meth along the way? Where are you?

Michael5000 said...

Mmm.... meth....

Julie_Gong said...

how about you write something new.

blythe said...

dear shain,

remember how we are now in the same town and i haven't heard from you in two days? did you get killed by yoga?

The Yellow Dart said...

What did you do, give up on blogging?

5 of 9er said...

Do yoga! Do yoga!

blythe said...

the yoga, she is just starting. my legs, they are nearly paralyzed.

Julie_Gong said...

where are these yoga pictures you promised?

blythe said...

oh no, julie. there will be no photos. of me. but perhaps one of shain in his special yoga square neck tank top he wore monday. fucking priceless.
