A Frustrating Reminder That I Can’t Always Be Completely Open Here

The next two weeks are going to be interesting around here. My life has kind of undergone a major shift and I’m eager to talk about it and eager to document every aspect of it in the sort of narcissistic manner I’ve grown used to around here. But the dictates of professionalism, decorum, and common sense mean that’s not always possible and the last thing I want to do is screw other people over with my self-centered blatherings.

So I’m torn with being coy and cheeky and throwing around hints and clues and playing it as a game as I’ve done a little bit on Facebook and on this site, or just ignoring it completely and waiting until the end of next week when everything is hammered out and official to get rolling with the documentation. Seeing as part of this involves a week-long trip to Europe where I won’t able to communicate back here without incurring ridiculous roaming data charges makes the idea of shutting my trap for a couple of weeks the more likely plan.

Also, it’s not like I don’t have other things to talk about. It’s almost Christmas and I have greedy little kids to vent about and I have a wife I want to surprise within the rigid guidelines she’s given me, and I continually believe my day-to-day activities warrant over-indulgent analysis and publication here of that analysis.

But what do you all think? I’m open to suggestions.
