Not Tired at All -- I am usually asleep by 9:30 in the evening, sadly. It's a remnant, I think, of getting up at 3 in the morning to go to work every day, which I did circa 1997-2004. But here I am at 9:38 PM all awake and everything. Exciting.

My son's Fifth Grade Recognition event went well -- he's off to Middle School next year, and while I think the idea of a 5th Grade "graduation" is a bit silly, I have to admit that the emotional speech by the principal and an entertaining and moving video presentation did get to me after all.

After the ceremony, Mom and I slipped the boy a cash-filled congratulations card, which he was thrilled to get. He was also genuinely grateful that both of us were there -- the above-mentioned hideous work hours kept me from being able to attend a lot of school events for either he or his sister in their elementary years, but now that I am a 9-to-5 kind of guy and also working much closer to home, it's a bit easier to slip out for an hour or so to be there for my kids, which increasingly I am coming to realize is the very best thing you can do for them.

If you poke around in the "contents" section of the sidebar, you'll find I added some older posts from 2002-2003 that hadn't previously been in the archives. I don't know if you care much about old posts one way or the other, but while surfing Comic Book Galaxy's saved pages at Archive.org, I found a goodly amount of stuff that I had thought lost. So I tried to grab as much of it as I could and post it, back-dated, into the ADD Blog archives. Have a look if you're so bored inclined.

I'll be adding older posts as time allows over the next few days. I'm also thinking of integrating the Kochalkaholic and A Criminal Blog stuff I've written into the archives here, just to have it all in one place...

One other thought I had today, you know what is kind of cool? Remember a few years ago when this blog, Dirk Deppey's Journalista and AK's Title Bout were all fairly widely-read internet thingies? It's kind of neat that after our various 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness(es) that we're all back and in b-i-bidness one way or another.

Hey, wait a minute, maybe I am getting tired after all. One look at the cat sleeping comfortably on the rocking chair in our living room, and I can feel the energy drain right out of me. I think I'll read some more Fletcher Hanks and hit the hay. You have a good night and we'll chat again soon.
