Howdy, Folks. Remember Me?

So it would seem that it’s been a while since my last post, and for that I sincerely apologize to all of you (especially you in the back, Ted). That’s just procrastination taken to a ridiculous extreme, and my new year’s resolution is to make sure that I keep my procrastination well within the bounds of societal norms, which for blogs is currently no more than 7 fortnights between self-indulgent posts.

Hey, speaking of self-indulgence, I just wanted to let everyone know that I actually have a special announcement coming up soon. Let’s just say that it has to do with an updated version of an old classic, or perhaps something to do with my first book. Your feelings on said book will determine which one of those statements (or both?) ring more true for you and yours.

Also, I plan on occasionally crawling out of my cave this year, just long enough to post the occasional rant on these here pages. So if you used to check this site on occasion but gave up due to lack of postage on my part, then it may be hard for me to get this message to you. But, if you still wander past here from time to time because your OCD forbids you altering that pattern, then your tenacious rut is about to become worth it. Or not. I honestly don’t know why you were stalking my site in the first place, but I thought it rude to say anything.

Anyway, the point I’m getting at with all this is that soon-ish you can expect both some updates on this site as well as updates on both past and future writing. In the meantime, I hope all of you have just a crazy awesome start to your 2013 (and let’s all hope this year ends up being more lucky than its number might portend). And to kick things off, here is my current to-do list for the new year:

2013 Goals

1. Get this post on the site. Check!
2. Really sit down and evaluate things. What am I doing with my life? Am I making a difference? Have I never been mellow?
3. After way too much self-reflection, and coming to the conclusion that I’ve wasted another year not reflecting sooner, have a good cry while listening to some Phil Collins ballads.
4. Get on iTunes and purchase some newer, hipper music, trying not to get sidetracked by wondering what House Of Pain is up to these days.
5. Dammit, what are they up to?!!
6. Focus, Perry, we’ve gotta focus here.
7. Maybe this goal-setting would go better if I took a break for just one quick game of Angry Birds. You know, clear the head. And then after that, for reals, we’re totally gonna buckle down and make this year happen…
