excuses

WAIT!
Please don't throw me out of your Rolodex!
I'm still here!

I know it's presumptuous of me,
but I really think cranking out stuff
for the sake of occupying my place in the blogosphere
is counter-intuitive.

It's just that lately life happens faster than art does.
That's the bald-faced truth of it.


I know... most of my teachers didn't swallow that one either.
Good thing, cuz it's a black-hearted lie.

What really happened is...
I got an iPhone 4, and it swallowed me whole.
Hook, line and sinker.
.
Uh-oh, a large red ERROR has taken over this post.
Its footnote warns,
"Could not contact Blogger."

I suppose I should be grateful.

Some people give their iphones a name. Have you christened yours yet?

Irina said...

I like your blog so much, will follow with pleasure. Please do not forget blogging while i-phoning.

Celeste-
An affair? More like a messy co-dependent love/hate thing.

Janelle-
Assuming I'm Frankenstein's Luddite monster, I think Igor is appropriate. For now.

Irina-
The scary thing is that, like this answer, as well as this post's Art art, much of this is generated by this Igor. Yikes! Proof: the word verif. is "trickiti".

Do you think we'd abandon you so quickly? You've got staying power so don't worry.

Great- I'm going to chief your excuse as I get ready to purchase mine. Is this what I have to look forward to?

What's a rolodex?!

I've heard about these addictions to iPhones and other neat gizzies. Hmmm, sorta like addictions to blogging and art, etc., non?

We'll be here no matter how long it takes you to climb outta that iPhone4 thingy.

Have fun. Then, do as Patrice suggested and blog about it!

WV: bon st
