Ok, I might be dead now…

I’ve actually had dozens of posts in my head, but what I’m lacking right now is time. I lost three hours a day when I moved back home due to commuting. Two to driving and one to the extra hour earlier I have to go to bed now. I need solutions people. I’m thinking that if I get infected with some sort of rare disease where I’m forced to live inside a plastic bubble that could solve the problem. I can collect unemployment for money, I won’t have to commute or work so there will be almost limitless time for blogging. Of course, I’ll never be able to leave the bubble or experience any kind of human contact ever again, but I will be back to blogging again, so there’s some give and some take… I’m open to other ideas though. I’d like to make “rare disease bubble boy freak” plan B if I could.

Hmmmmm.... I say:

Tape a pillow to your stomach and then walk around like that for a few months. THEN disappear- and when they phone, say you are on maternity leave.

Hopefully, they'll laugh and forget about it, or teyll just FIRE you. Either way, you got time off work.

(It CAN be done, ask Arnold Schwarzenneger)

You could use your stair falling practice to stage some horrible accident while at work. The accident would be staged, but the injuries would have to be real. Then you could go on disability for that. As long as it didn't affect your arms/hands/fingers, you could blog while you're out.

Adrian: I’ve been wearing a pillow for a few months now… mostly people are just telling me to hit the gym. I’ll still try and sell it though…

Omar: Problem is, I kind of like my legs… I don’t want to give up my ability to walk just yet.

I’m thinking more along the lines of a sugar momma for me… I’d like to be a stay at home husband… Who want to support me?

what i don't get is how these extra hours have cut into your blog time instead of your sleep time. my solution? rest less and caffeinate more.

we miss you.

Glo said...

Ah. Crummy. I could have come in handy in preparing that bubble idea. I know all sorts of terrifically horrible diseases one can contract if they wander the right hallway in the hospital.

How about if you write your posts by hand, on paper while you're...um...at work...? Then after work you dash home and type it.

No?

Oh dear.

Lunch hour blogging?

funny how i have so much time and zero blog posts. which is worse? that bubble idea has potential. i mean, it was made into a movie, its gotta have some cool perks. think it through, keep us all posted. good luck!

Adrian said...

JON: Youre not REALLY dead are you? Its been a while, buddy.

WHERE ARE YOU?

cadiz12 said...

honestly. this is getting ridiculous now.

jazz said...

agreed.

Jon said...

Yeah, there’s no two ways about it. I suck. I’ve been narrowing down the factors that have reduced my posting to almost non-existent and I think that in a little over 1 week I will have adequately gotten rid of them. Once that happens, I will begin my comeback and hopefully, it will be of epic proportions… or at least semi-epic proportions…

Radioactive Jam said...

Jon - think of the comeback from an injured athlete's perspective. You'll want to gradually return to your previous form. I'd say limit yourself to no more than 2 or 3 1000-word posts for the first day. Then increase the load in like, 500 word increments, sort of like adding weight to the barbell. Machine. Whatever.

Looking forward to your epic.

omar said...

I'd settle for semi-epic at this point, Onj.

Guyana-Gyal said...

Or even one funny li'l paragraph.

jon, yesterday i posted a notice about how i sneezed. i know some people thought that was a cop-out, but that was all i could muster that day.

start small.
