"Everytime I think I'm out, they pull me back in..."

Ok - here it is not quite two months since my self-proclaimed final post and Look Ma, I'm Blogging!

At first it was a pleasure to be released from the burden of posting; the constant need to come up with clever ideas (or at least ideas; how clever they were is a matter of opinion). Then a funny thing happened; I found myself writing entries in my mind if not online. One minute I'd be out and about with friends or family and suddenly I'd think "there's a great idea for a blog" or "wouldn't that be fun to write about". It was so subtle at first that I hardly realized it. But the Blog Monster is an insiduous beast with an insatiable appetite and soon mental notes weren't enough; I actually started making lists of topics to blog about.

Still I resisted signing into Blogger; no matter how the Blog Monster begged or cajoled I remained strong. "Feed Me , Michael," the Blog Monster would say in his best Levi Stubbs voice. Other times his pleadings would be soft and sultry, reminiscent of Kathleen Turner in Body Heat: "Come on, Michael, you know you want to..."

Long story short, I am a weak-willed man and it was only a matter of time before I gave in. So here I am, one year to the day of my very first blog and I'm back in the game.

Don't touch that dial, we'll be right back after this word from our sponsor...
