November 2006: A Retrospective.

Well, I think it’s safe to say that after a solid month of posting, I didn’t improve one bit. Sure, I may have compensated for quality with quantity, but… no wait, I think that’s one of the Shuck N Jive’s mission statements.

When in doubt, type a lot of crap out.

I think I vaguely remember demanding that statement be put in the Shuck N Jives official documents somewhere. That was some amazing foresight on my part. I can’t imagine the legal ramification if I hadn’t included some sort of verbiage in there like that. I think I’d have a lot of false advertising lawsuits if I hadn’t put that in there. Can you imagine the position that would put me in? I think I’d be sitting in a court room a lot… yeah… I’m pretty sure that’s the position.

I do hope you’ve all enjoyed or, at the very least, endured this month of posting. There have not been any official meetings yet to discuss the contract situation beyond this month, so I can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to rest a day without being force fed some more Shuck N Jive content. Then again, I can’t guarantee that there will be any more daily content for you to mutter under your breath about angrily at your desk while you wonder (some of you out loud) why you ever book marked this url in the first place.

I would like to thank everyone that doubted me, without your wavering support, I probably still could have gotten through this, but I wouldn’t have had such a half hearted hooray feeling at the end of it. One can only wonder if this newfound determination will spill over into the slightly less important areas of my life, like work and exercise. I trust a few of you will begrudgingly follow along and find out.

I will make you all one promise though and that is this: I will have longer posts in the future. These short little guys were mostly a product of the deadline. I think the added pressure made me tighten up a bit. We’ll see if we can’t do something about that. So don’t fret, I’ll have you all rolling your eyes in unison again at the ridiculous length of my boring nonsense. Until then…

so does this mean we will get lengthy but highly infrequent posts again? i was kind of getting used to a daily dose.

Verbiage...hmmm, its only because you're an English Major that I believe in that being an actual word.

Oh, the power you wield, Jon.
