Bowing out for the time being

Hey all you cats and kittens,

Anyone who reads my blog regularly knows that I post a lot. Usually every day I make one or two contributions. Sometimes these are popular posts that get shown around the office water-cooler, some are ugly lampshades that you really want reupholstered, except everybody only does it in puce, which is actually a fairly nice colour, but just doesn't go with the crown moulding, and in actual fact, you never liked that lamp anyway.

Well, I've been pretty busy the last few days, and am working on a project that is not game related. I have a YA novel that I've been working on for the last few months, and it's just getting to the point where it needs my undivided attention. This means I ain't gunna do as much posting for a while. It's a great exercise for me, but it takes a wee bit too much of my time, coming up with ideas, or research, or copy and pasting from McSweeneys.

That never happened.

Anyway, I still have a lot of ideas I want to share out here, so you'll still see tidbits, but I just won't be putting in as much time, so more of the "meh" ideas may make it in, or just get dropped. If something exciting happens, like Nintendo going back to making playing cards, or Dubya going on a last minute clock-tower rampage, you can bet I'll be back here, posting boots on. For now though, I'll leave you with this sobering thought:

It's a metaphor.
