You know, I should proofread these silly posts more closely.

I’ve mentioned on this blog before that I tend to queue up posts when I’m in a writerly mood so that I have them ready to go later. In fact, I have a bunch just sitting there, staring at me, waiting for me to be in the right mood to post them. This week, I turned two loose that had been in the queue for varying amounts of time. One was only there for a couple of days, but the other had been sitting there for close to six weeks. As a result, there were some things that hadn’t been clear to me when I wrote it that are clear to me now. Yes, I’m talking about where my relationship with LK stands. (We’re friends, now, incidentally. We finally both realized that, while we like the other person quite a lot, anything more intimate probably wouldn’t work well for either of us in the long-term. Sad, but true.) But, you see, earlier this week, I got an e-mail from a friend in a distant land who was concerned about me because I hadn’t been keeping up my regular posting schedule. So, without looking too carefully, I fired two queued posts into the blogosphere. Sadly, I hadn’t checked the second one closely enough and it was a slightly more “live round” than I’d intended. Whoops!

Oh, well, at least my loyal readers can learn from my mistake! 😉
Oh, and one more thing, before I forget… Some cute, local gal sent me a message on Match.com last night. Totally out of the blue, completely unexpected and totally cool. Just, you know, FYI, in case anyone was wondering.

  2. Oh, nothing important, I suppose, Wendi. I just made reference to my relationship with LK in Thursday’s post, with a comment about not giving my wacky ex-wife or her new husband anything to smile about, since we weren’t doing too well. But, of course, that’s all worked out now and largely irrelevant.

    Hmm, yeah, okay, I can see how this doesn’t make as much sense outside my own head.
    Nothing to see here, folks. Move along, move along. 😉
