No, I’ve not opted to die or go on permanent hiatus in the new year. Rather, I’ve been busy. Between the holidays, work and a suprising yet most-welcomed extended visit from my lady, I’ve simply had to put the site stuff on the back-burner. Don’t fret, though. After all, it simply means you get the opportunity to read a shit-ton of haiku at once as opposed to a mere seven at a time. We all win! And for the record, I’m not one for new year’s resolutions. I find them to be both trite and meaningless (kind of like Valentine’s Day). Look, if you’re truly committed to change, it shouldn’t take a mere flip of the calendar to make it so. Want to quit smoking? Quit. Want to lose weight? Eat less and exercise. Want to cut down on your Internet porn time? Well, do whatever it is you need to do. I don’t want to be involved. With that, Happy 2011. Thanks for reading. Here’s to a new year of whatever the hell it is I do.
This mega-installment of haiku, from Monday, December 27, 2010 through Sunday, January 9, 2011, covers expectations for the new year, weathermen, my grasp of the English language, photography, my lack of powers, boardgame deficiency, Philadelphia fashion, bad movies, possessed animals, the television apocalypse, old man slumbering and shitty restaurant service. As always, you can find this collection here every Monday, or go on over and subscribe to my Twitter feed (@CousinBrandon). It’s 2011 and you’re not following me on Twitter?! You’re off to an awfully poor start. Just sayin’.
