I really do love my family, though.

Sorry it’s been so long – I am a very busy man and have been very busy with business. In all seriousness, I am free from academia for the next three weeks. I have my evenings entirely to myself.

My life is a bit of a strange play. And as I grow older, more cynical, bitter and awesome, the more and more people have decided that it’s appropriate to either criticize me or flat out insult me for the way I live. I’m 26, single and keep a very busy schedule. I mentioned at one point how old people love facebook as much as young people do. And they take it very seriously. I keep mine private and I don’t accept friend requests from people in authority. My more zealous family members have chosen it as the best place from which to criticize me. I am quite guilty of drunken internet ranting on multiple occasions. Such a shame that I’m going to hell now.

Several of my relatives are cool as hell. My cousin Mara Ann sings beautifully.

If I wanted to have a “professional” social networking account, I’d use LinkedIn. And I do, just for that reason.

And the worst part is that I actually censor myself a bit on facebook because I have so many family members as friends. I don’t suspect that they would be nearly as entertained by hearing about my random debauchery and carousing as my actual friends are. Hell, I don’t think I’d be that entertained by hearing about it. But whipping them into a fury with my atheism, lack of social conservativism and penchant for women and booze is actually more fun without details. Being that old people are essentially stoned all the time, I can only imagine what they think I’m up to (the truth is far less exciting, truthfully). And my father just says, “dammit, stop pissing them off!” I asked him to tell them the same thing.

Anyways, here are some tidbits; I know my life is so very entertaining – I’m going to try and write up a little something about my recent interactions with the schizophrenics I work with. In the mean time:

I’m going to whip up something to eat, kick back with a movie and some of Augusta’s finest tap-water. I’m a little disappointed in myself for letting my goal of posting every day slip so badly.
