It's Almost Life-Like

It gives me sincere pleasure to note that I have not 'blogged' in a fair while... vacations, booze and patios coupled with a healthy dose of luddism being the prime culprits. Given the seven months of absolute frigidity that this city bestows, I just could never stomach the idea of sitting before a radiating box while the sun is shining, the nights are warm and one doesn't need to employ de-icer by the gallon.

However with summer effectively in the rear view mirror, the Cable man is dropping by next Saturday to plug me once again into this introverted world-wide plethora of rubbish. While I can live comfortably without frivolous phones or televisions, the notion of a long harsh winter without the likes of Metafilter and The Onion is wholly inconceivable.

Subsequently, it is with a tempered sense of despair (on the part of both myself and the three of you that happen upon this place) that I announce the inevitability of ol' Velvy's return to some degree.

Cheers and Godspeed,

Dick.

It is sad that the sun sets on one season only to rise on another Autumn...what a solemn word.

Nothing like a little death and cold in your diet.

Apparently there is no room in your life for exurbanites (i hate planner slang, it is so slutty) who prey upon the green and pave over what litle remnants there are of the past....let the farmers clear it and they will come.

How was the big dig?

Well, ole Kilpatrick is clearly not a planner, because planners and our slang are not slutty, we're incestuous!!!

Now now thug... it hardly seems fair to pick on someone who is either playing dress-up or just can't come to terms with the fact that they were never 'urban' to begin with. Well that and it's never nice to pick on people who can't spell...
