I don't know how to quit you. Or it, as the case may be.

Okay, okay.  The last post, announcing the move to WordPress, was admittedly just too cutesy and cryptic.*  I admit it.

So, in any case, my new blog home is at The Wild Winds Of Fortune  (

I made it nearly three weeks before I resumed.  I guess I needed this more than I knew, and besides, one of my (unstated) reasons for the hiatus has resolved itself.   I still don't know how much I will be doing, for reasons I state over there.  I am worried about how much blogging will impact other projects I want to do.  Even though I want to do them, blogging provides the immediate gratification of seeing the results on paper in pixels. And "procrastination" is my middle name -- my parents only put "Marie" on the birth certificate to placate the nuns.

One last thing:  I have been porting over this blog at regular intervals to have a backup in case of, I don't know, me accidentally violating the Google TOS and the company freezing my accounts.**  So all of my prior posts are available at WordPress, plus a few that I posted over the last week, including one on the anniversary of the Columbia disaster.

*But see? If you had clicked on the link you would know already!
**Although if that happened, I would have a lot bigger problems than just my blog being  unavailable.  One of my Gmail accounts is used for business purposes, and is on my resume, and has been submitted to a lot of employers. Not to mention the few (but important) Google docs I have.

I'm your only friend, I'm not your only friend, but I'm a little glowing friend, but I'm not actually your friend, but I am....

Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch*
Who watches over you
Make a little birdhouse in your soul
Not to put too fine a point on it
Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet
Make a little birdhouse in your soul....

*I do in fact have a blue canary night light.  It was a Christmas present two years ago, and when I got it the Rocket Scientist spent part of Boxing Day rewiring the light switch next to my closet to have an outlet as well as a switch.  So now I have a "blue canary in the outlet by the light switch."  I cannot tell you how happy this makes me.
