-Sora no Woto, Ep13
Didn't I just do one of these a couple of days ago? Well, yes, yes I did. Except that one actually had a point to it (i.e., don't watch Kill Me Baby). This one, on the other hand, is some attempt at an explanation of my lack of actual content here at The Pond of late. One could argue that it's been 18 days since my last post of any real value. I will concede the point. It's not like I don't have big things to write about... indeed, I've got two major posts staring me in the face (Best Late War Fighters, Katawa Shoujo).
Thing is... I just don't feel like writing. Part of it is work-related; we've been going great guns all month in preparation for the start of Spring classes, which occurred this week. Tuesday, to be exact, which might tell you just how sick I really was this past Wednesday. Anyway, work is part of it. The aforementioned Katawa Shoujo and Skyrim are also reasons why I haven't blogged much. It may not be a coincidence that my output went through the floor the same day that KS was released. I'm enjoying my time in two radically different imaginary worlds for radically different reasons. I just... look, I've been here at The Pond for a long time (well, in blog time at least). I still enjoy blogging, it's just a different sort of enjoyment now.
Back in the "old days," when nobody knew who this Wonderduck guy was, I wrote to a) entertain myself; and b) make people aware that there was a hyperintelligent duck with phenomenal (for a duck) typing skills out there who might have some interesting things to say. Then once I got noticed by a few folks who decided to stick around, the "new day" of blogging dawned. In some ways, I felt I had to keep one-upping myself. This led to mammoth posts that took waaaaaaay too long to write; 4100 words and eight hours? For an episode of Rio Rainbow Gate!?
Maybe I'm just getting old, but the immense need to write seems to have gone away at some point over the past few months. Maybe having that tooth pulled let it all leak out? I'm not going anywhere, don't fret none 'bout that. I'm not even taking a hiatus. I'm just... going to take it easy for a bit. Not for long, and you might not even notice a difference, but I'm going to stress less about blogging and try to have myself a little fun again.
Besides, the F1 thing starts up in earnest this week when Caterham rolls out their 2012 car to begin the F1 Pr0n season. I weep for my lost weekends...
I also have a LiveJournal, but I had to make all the personal entries private because I had a stalker. An amazingly pathetic one, but a stalker nonetheless, so the audience there is limited to about 60, maybe, if they haven't all migrated to Facebook. That and Russian spammers on the public entries (the politics stuff).
I get more readers for my Mad Scientist porn on DeviantArt than I do for my blogs.

Also: did you take the flock on a drive to Madison recently?

VK, yeah, I know. My desire to write about F1 right now is somewhat near zero.
