Perhaps the reason that I have posted so infrequently is because there are so infrequent comments to the post. I'm pretty sure very few people leave comments on this blog because one Glaven Q. Heisenberg is no longer commenting, or ridiculing me on his own blog. I'll be honest: I miss him.
There, I said it.
I somehow found G's site in late 2008 and immediately added it to my blogroll because of its great title of "Mostly Running, Some Bull@hi1^." (ps...I hope my computer thinks that I just wrote an email address). He immediately started commenting on my site and giving me a much unwarranted nickname of "Dr. Super Runner." (this was later changed to "Dr. Nic Medicine Woman," which was probably, in some way, more accurate). From then on I looked forward to taking the abuse he doled out in the comment section regarding pretty much any topic I touched on. I envy his ability to write. Brevity was not his strongsuit. (He left that to Teh 'Bride)
More than his "running" site, I enjoyed his "Why are you so F@ck&*g Angry?" blog (again, keeping the link), which I thought was absolutely must-read material. He often touched on the adventures of King Fisherman Ian, the
hoarding tendencies home projects of his wife, Teh 'Bride, and also the HeisenDad. The closest I got to actually "knowing" him was an email address, which I used to get an address to send a gift to Teh 'Bride--a pint glass that reads "Fuzzy Yellow Beer is for Wussies"--, which I never got around to doing...yet...but I really enjoyed "knowing" him through the blog. It made my blog a LOT BETTER, TOO.
Here's to you, Glaven! I wish you and your family the most Merry Christmas possible!
(or, as you libs like to say..."Happy Holidays" :)
