I had to Sleep

I am back. For the umpteenth time and counting. In my fledgling non-career as a blogist, I have already been away and come back a few times already, so this is not new to me. What is new is that, for the first time, I am also thinking that this kind of 'I am back' posts are a complete waste of time, space and the money I pay for my home broadband connection. So this will, for all intents, be my last 'I am back' post. Now for this to be my last, I must not go away at all, there by removing the need for saying 'I am back' or I should simply not bother with an 'I am back', the next time I come back. Knowing me the way I do, I can say that the first option is what I aim for and the second option is what will happen.

Let me clear up something before going forward. I know I am supposed to call myself a 'blogger'. I referred to myself as a 'blogist' - rhymes with artist - only because 'blogger' somehow doesn't do it for me. When I try saying that I am a blogger it makes me feel like I am a software. That is reason enough for me to come up with 'blogist'. Hope that clears the air.

So why was I away? I am not sure I can put my finger on any one reason. My other job, the one that helps pay my bills, required me to travel and I was gone for a week. Then I fell sick and took that opportunity to get re-acquainted with daytime sleeping. Just as I thought I was getting better I started seeing red all around. I wasn't angry nor was there something wrong with my eyes. It was the color my stock portfolio was painted in after the markets got a 'Bear hug'. One after the other, there was always something else to think about.

Ok, now for what actually happened. All that I said is true but actually what it all did for me is that they gave me an excellent excuse for being lazy and I am proud to say that I utilized each and every one of them. There is this voice in my head that keeps telling me about Noodle House and all I did the last of couple of weeks was to give it one reason every day, explaining why Noodle House was not a priority on that day.

Today, unfortunately, I ran out of reasonable sounding reasons and I can't really sleep in peace if I bluntly accept to that voice that I am too lazy to write. So the other option is to write, which is what this endeavor is supposed to be. Now I can sleep.
