Guess Who's Back?

Return of the Jer-Die

I'm backkkkkk!

Feels like a long time eh. In fact, it has been pretty long! I haven't blogged for 4 months, and truth be told, I was beginning to miss it.

I miss being able to rant and rave to my heart's content, to post rubbish which would otherwise never see the light of day, to foist upon the Internet all manner of poorly edited photos and to check on my blog's traffic rating and feel a warm glow in my heart and a great sense of achievement when the number of daily visitors painstakingly creeps above 10 a day.

Ah, to be part of the blogosphere again.

You Gotta Do What You gotta do

One of the 3 main reasons why I temporarily stopped blogging was because of work. Although work is still as hectic as ever, I felt that reviving my once 'glorious' blog was something that I simply HAD to do! I can't simply let HodgePodge I Am die like that? After all the blood, sweat and tears I've poured into it? Never!

Besides, I had to think of my fan (notice the absence of plurality)! What will he (yes, it's a He) do now that he's being deprived of the one thing that brought meaning and joy to his life? Nooo!!

So it is with a renewed sense of purpose that I proceeded to dust off the virtual cobwebs from my blog, fire up ye ol' Adobe Photoshop (which I only ever use to edit photos for my blog) and sit with my fingers poised over the keyboard, ready to unleash a barrage of witty text at a moment's inspiration.

Which brings me to the second reason why I stopped blogging...inspiration. Or to be more exact, the lack of.

Ol' geezer Yong

I found that after my gazillionth post, I basically ran out of things to say. And everything thereafter seems to be a limpid repetition of what I typed eons ago. Why, even this sentence gives me a strange case of deja vu.

Which is very sad.

And which led me to the conclusion that I'm a doddering old geezer with a penchant for repeating himself.

And which led to my decision to stop blogging, at least for a little while.

You follow me thus far?

BUT (yes, there is a but)...that was wayyy back in 2007! Now, with 4 months gone by, I'm bubbling with ideas and inspiration, a veritable geyser of pent-up blogging energy! I feel like I could just sit here and type out genius-post after genius-post without even breaking a sweat! Why, Kenny Sia's posts will pale in comparison to mine!..muahaha.

Even as I smugly sit here and fantasize about what it'd be like to write a blog which attracts more than 10 people a day, I realize that it's all a pipe-dream because...

..and that brings us to the third and final reason why I stopped blogging.

I'm just too lazy.

So lazy in fact, that I'm going to stop my post right here and show you a bunch of photos (poorly edited mind you) of the stuff I did during my absence.


Stuff I did...zzzzzz

While I was busy not blogging, I....

...went on a road trip to Melaka....

...celebrated Christmas and New Year in London... my arse handed to me at BlackJack, no thanks to a person whom I shall not name *cough* *Kok Leong* *cough*....

...spent time with my family during CNY...

...had a blast in Hong Kong...

...bought myself another piece of property...

...celebrated Leonard and Eleena's wedding... my friend blow-up his turbo in a drag race (and spent half the night standing around a deserted highway waiting for the tow truck)...

....and attended another wedding, this time of my old college mate Ken Ong.

The End...*tan tan tarra!*
