Yes, it’s your friendly neighborhood out of work, drunken slut of a blogger! Ok, well, maybe I’m not all that friendly. Anyway, I’ve been a bit out of it the last couple of weeks – the warm weather has got me partying and drinking at all sorts of hours. Like especially happy hour… I think I’m getting to that point where close friends and family members start throwing about words like ‘intervention’ when your name comes up.
No worries, my binge is over and it’s time for me to purge a new post. Sounds lovely, no?
