So it's been a while

A line I was reading of Dave Barry lent some insight into how, post-college, I disappeared off the face of the blogosphere:

"So I visited my son at college on Parents Weekend, which is a nice event that colleges hold so that parents will have a chance to feel old.

I started feeling old the moment I got to my son's housing unit and saw a sign on the door that said: END WORLD HUNGER TODAY. This reminded me that there was a time in my life, decades ago, when I was so full of energy that I was going to not only END WORLD HUNGER, but also STOP WAR and ELIMINATE RACISM. Whereas today my life goals, to judge from the notes I leave myself, tend to be along the lines of BUY DETERGENT."

Ya, so I got old. I live in the US now, I work for a living, I pay taxes, and I am very, very old. What the hell happened? I'm technically still 21!
