See, My good friend and co-conspirator Pamela Beckford
convinced me that we could easily pull off a Thelma and Louise. So after the heist, we retired to a beautiful island in the South Pacific. We were subsequently kidnapped by a band of nearly nude male islanders and taken to their king. This Guy:
So anyway, we enjoyed that. But unfortunately, all things must come to an end eventually as real life tends to cloud our daydreams. So we will get to that real life bit, right after this:
Now for the Actually:
Pam, still looks lithe and gorgeous as she does in the photo I showed you above. I have, however, not aged quite so well. Oink. But I can still swim like the dickens.
The truth is, since we must eventually get to that, I got tired of the wordpress time demands and a good friend of mine, Audrey, pointed out to me that I was burning out. I needed to spend some time with my family and deal with people who weren’t on the other side of a computer screen. She was right, so thank you, Audrey, for showing me a different path in life.
During the last couple of years that I haven’t been blogging, I have done a lot of things. I became a minister. Actually ordained–true blue. I became a clay artist. I’ll save that for another post, or perhaps another blog. I home schooled my kids. I am going back to university to complete degrees in Theology and Philosophy. I spent time with my husband, Julian Froment
(Yes, he is the Lewd Englishman I used to flirt with on this blog before I forced him to submit to my awesome power and marry me. Poor Guy.)
I continued to do reviews on consumer websites and work with Netgalley as the mood struck me. I have done a lot of reading and a lot of learning and I think I’ve now gotten to a place where I feel like returning to my blogging home is something that interests me.
I miss interacting with all of you, and the daily smiles that you put on my face. I miss bantering with Charles and John and everyone else. Mostly, I miss being able to share with you the things I read and enjoy (or don’t as occasionally happens) and get your feedback. I miss reading your posts and seeing what you do and how you think. So, I will slowly try to rebuild this thing that I have let fall into decay, before the wind carries away the remaining ashes.
I am also blogging at The Philosophical Theologian if anyone is interested in knowing more about my other life.
