Life Happens


Yeah, so about my lack of steady attention to the site lately.

I know that in the past I've had to occasionally make excuses for not keeping the content flowing around here, but the current situation is something entirely new for me. First of all, my move out to the other side of the country means that I'm not really getting started on anything until around 10:30AM on the East Coast so I'm automatically behind in the morning. Add to that a pretty nice new wrinkle: I'm actually living my life these days. I'm working long hours, yes, but when I'm not doing that I go out, I do dinners and drinks, I exercise, I hang out with friends and, as anyone who's paid the slightest bit of attention to my Facebook timeline recently can probably figure out, I've actually started kind of seeing someone. In other words, I'm doing things that make me happy -- occasionally just content, sometimes deliriously over-the-moon, but generally happy.

Now I just have to figure out a way to make sure the upkeep of DXM -- which has been like a home to me during the long period in which I felt like I had no home -- isn't something I neglect.

It's gonna take a little time, but I promise we'll get back on track soon. I'm eager to really start writing again.

Until then, though, it's nice to be able to say that your humble narrator is finally living a little.

Don't worry, I'm still a smart-mouthed son-of-a-bitch -- but at least I'm a more agreeable one.

Deus Ex Content?

Yeah, happiness in LA. *snorts*

Glad to hear it buddy, enjoy it.

Hey Chez...as much as I love DXM, I think you should keep Living Your Life as your priority. And if life is great, good, or otherwise,pehaps you'll find a wonderfully acerbic way to tell us allllll about it.
Cheers (and I'm so happy for you)!

Between no word from you for five days and that "Head Found in a Bag Under the HOLLYWOOD Sign" story, I was gettin' a bit worried.

Well, shit! More life, less internet is a good motto. Hope to buy you a drink some time soon now that you are in LA.

Chez, I agree with everyone else, live your life, man! I just finished reading Dead Star Twilight, which I've been meaning to do for years, and I must say, you deserve some happiness! I was only worried that your absence was due to some unfortunate event.

I'm really happy for you. Clearly, the change in scenery has worked out better than even you imagined. Like others have said, live your life, take care of yourself first.

It's time. It's beyond time.

I don't even know you personally, but this brought the biggest smile to my face.

Well for a blog name like your's living life and being happy is the best excuse not to blog, I don't want to be disappointed now :P

I'll look forward to times when you are not so content and maybe write about it then, these days that's gotta happen sometime.

Can't keep a good man down. Go live life and keep enjoying it. I haven't gone through half the stuff you have, but I do know what it's like to come out of a crap experience and end up happy in the end.

CNNfan said...

Are you blaming east coast bloggers for making you unhappy and disagreeable?

IrishGirl said...

Don't let those east coast bloggers sweat you Chez....I'm perpetually behind the east coast in my blogging and always on a weird time in regards to the west coast (AZ time). You live where you live and getting up 3 hours earlier to please us anonymous yahoos is not worth it. Party on!

How dare you get a life and neglect the internet? I for one am OUTRAGED and demand a refund and three apologies for this lack of service.

(PS Yay!)

Seems like the last place anyone would find redemption, but I suppose the flowering of happiness can survive anything.
