Today’s forecast: Cloudy with a chance of douchebag!
A very good chance.
It’s snowed last night in my little corner of Canada, in case you’re wondering why I decided to launch a foray into meteorology. The overcast conditions I awoke to reflect my current mood and energy level; I’ve spent the last few days “perfecting” my literary masterpiece while trying to find time to schlep bags and be the best damn dad and husband I can be!
I’ve been a bellman for almost two decades so I can deliver luggage in my sleep (I do at times!), but the family thing is a tough nut to crack!
I have to give my loved ones credit for putting up with my mood swings and occasional – okay, maybe not so “occasional” – tantrums; they fight back when necessary and they let me rant when I really need to.
To all you single guys out there, listen up: it may be cool to hop from bed to bed with all the frequency of a cheap ham radio but trust me, you have no idea what you’re missing. Until you’ve basked in the warmth of a loving family you’ll never realize how cold you really were. This concludes my sermon on the joys of family. Come back next Sunday for an hour entitled, “The Modern-day Douchebag: Satan’s Little Helper!”
All right, this post has gone completely off the rails….
What was I trying to say this time around? Oh yeah, this was supposed to a book update! Here we go…
- We have a title! The Bellman Chronicles will soon be gracing Amazon and hopefully other online outlets soon.
- We have decided to reveal VampireLover’s true name! Read this book and you’ll know the true name of my loving wife. If that’s not a great hook, I don’t know what is!
- The book – and my online column for Bullet News Niagara – have left me little time to manage my own blogs so I’ll be stepping back. Don’t worry, they’ll be updates and bulletins here and there to keep the lines of communication open with all of my WordPress buddies, old and new!
- I’ll still be covering the upcoming Niagara Falls Comic-Con, so you have tales of comic book fans gone wild to look forward to!
