It's never good when visitors keep seeing the same post every time they visit your blog, but it's even worse when it's your wife who's visiting and the post she keeps seeing is one that features a photo of another woman - another woman who is referred to in the title of said post as "cute." Whoops.
My most recent unplanned blogging semi-hiatus started with the usual weekend patio-building business, continued at work with the project that would not die (non-patio division) which was due in June but just keeps going and going and going (and sitting at the computer all day doesn't exactly make me want to pick up the laptop when I get home, you know?), and hit its stride with me getting sick. The weak and woozy kind of sick.
So it sucks being stuck in bed next to a pot ("just in case") all day, but it does give me a chance to make it up to the missus for that Nellie McKay picture she keeps having to see (and to finally get it off the top of my blog).
The missus has been super extra nice to me this week, starting with her coming and picking me up at work Tuesday morning when I felt like I would pass out and/or throw up (I'm pretty sure Ms. McKay never would've done that for me). I've done that whole fainting at work thing before, and it's not something I wanted to repeat. So the missus instantly understood, drove into the city (something she hates doing), and has put up with whiny sick me, which is a lot like the usual whiny me but even more so, if you can imagine that.
Oh, and she's also responsible for The Long Cut's current "about" photo (yes, that's a wine cooler I'm drinking, but it was just a joke, honest) and the photo used in the current banner! The woman does it all - and she's cute, too! Much, much cuter than Nellie. Unfortunately for you, the missus doesn't like having her face out there for all kinds of Internet weirdos to see (not that she thinks Long Cut readers are weirdos or anything), so you'll just have to take my word for this.
