An Early Welcome to 2011!

If you text in front of me one more time I will have you killed.

It's fun having a New Year's Eve birthday because I get a whole fresh start x2. Here are my 2011 resolutions:

1. Pay more attention to Coaster Punchman's World.

2. Quit Facebook.

3. Make more people-friends.

4. Never let my lower back go out again. Which means regular strengthening exercises once I'm up off my back from the episode I'm currently experiencing.

Number One I'm doing because I miss all of you and I miss writing.

Number Two I'm doing partially to get away from people I don't want to see, but mainly out of protest against laptops and handhelds having taken over society. Poor George and I are instituting a new rule that there is no handheld or laptop use allowed in the common rooms of our house (business use is excluded, however.) So if you are ever in our home and you want to use your laptop or crackberry/iphone/whatever-phone for texting, you will need to excuse yourself to the bathroom or guest bedroom or office. It might be a little awkward enforcing it at first, but we will have a store of polite ways in our back pocket. "Oh, I see you need to text - let me take you into my office where you'll have more privacy." Heh heh.

Number Three I'm doing because I work at home and haven't had a chance to meet a lot of real, live people in San Diego. And it's good for Poor George and me to have to have some separate friends. Not everything has to be done in a group.

Number Four should speak for itself. I have not had a serious episode since the summer of 2007, and now I've been flat on my back for over a week. Enough is enough with this - I'm going to make myself a sign that says something to the effect of "do the work today or be crippled tomorrow. Your choice."

Love and coasters --- and welcome back to CPW!

Nudge me...just like that....

This is Tiny Tim. He is lame, but not as lame as I am.

This morning I got an email from my dear friend Flannery over at Prone to Whimsy, alerting me to the fact that she dedicated a short story to me on her blog.

Unlike some of our blogging friends who have intentionally checked out of our little webiverse, I refuse to let CPW die even though I rarely write here any more. I continue to grasp at the thin hope that I will one day take up my virtual quill and relive my golden days of blogging. Until then, the world will just have to wait for my inspiration to return.

Meanwhile, please be a bunch of dears and email me if you write something you think I would enjoy. By now you all know the kinds of things that will get you my undivided attention: tales to satisfy my sick Mormon fascination; pictures of cats; anything that would make the average person cringe in embarrassment; and of course, anything about me.

I'm so lame that I don't even do that thing where you can get notified if someone links to your blog. All that stuff seems to take so damn long to figure out, and I'm old now.

Love and coasters,

Spanish Inquisition

Gentle Readers,

Couple things:

1. My post is up at the new blog I write for, Our Big Gayborhood. This month's post is on being nosy (hence the "Spanish Inquisition" reference.)

2. There is a major water line break in my REAL gayborhood. Looks like a river in front of my house. I had to move the car so as to avoid it falling into a sink hole. This is not going to be pretty.

Love and coasters,

This guy is my new hero

So this guy from Wisconsin moved to Utah, opened up a beer brewery, billed himself as Another Utah Pioneer! and started marketing this brew:

This is not even a joke. Have you ever anything as wonderful? I have not.
