Vacation From Social Media

I'm feeling a little burned out from the information overload with blogging, Facebooking, Tweeting, Phishing, Dishing, Listing, and other forms of xerography.

...made you look up the word xerography, didn't I?

I'll still blog a thing or two: there is bound to be some outrage I have to rant against, or a personal announcement about my pending collected works book.

But I gotta cut back. I'm overdoing the cray-cray myself, and I gotta take stock of things in the Real World.

I've also committed to doing Camp NaNo this July... so yeah, gotta focus on things.

Look, if something comes up, or if Michael Taggart comes back asking to talk about his dad, get my attention right f-cking quick by posting a comment here and type everything in CAPS LOCK under an Anonymous account. That should do it.

Update  6/24: DAMMIT ENGLAND YOU HAD ONE JOB.

Sigh. Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.

I just made a comment in a thread where there are numerous trolls that there is a wild canary outside my window just singing his ass off to impress his girlfriend, and while I can hear him, I'm finding it difficult to care about what fresh turds are being laid by today's trolls...

It's not the trollery, it's just the overwhelming, constant blogging and tweeting and FBing. I just need to cut back on all of that.

It's kind of like taking a vacation from myself.

I'll be back. Just not as frequently as I have been the last few months (I'd blogged almost double days throughout April, man, that's overdoing it for me).

I don't even get that many trolls here. It breaks my heart. :(

Just read the comments at the Field Negro some time, you'll get right past the "I haven't arrived until I get my very own troll" idea.

I wanna feel the thrill of getting a dedicated insane troll, so I can finally call in some favors with people I know to track the SOB down and I get to re-enact the final bit from "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back". >:-)

You might wanna talk to Aussa Lorens about that, her anti-troll hacking skills are legendary.

I gotta get a fresh one first.

Here, troll, here troll!
