Oh, that depends, does it not, on one’s definition of “something nice.” Guys standing under you looking up your dress is not what most women would call nice, is it? Back to the drawing board, ad guys!
So hello after a week! Yeah, here we are…I’ll be keeping an eye out for ads, but just not every day (I think you guessed about that, right?). If you follow me on Twitter (and please do, I promise to write more funny 140-character poems in the near future!) – then you know I am presently: writing That Mystery Novel and thinking about What Now regarding blogging: a writing blog? A new ad blog? A blog about the weird Victorian novels I am reading (they go so nicely with writing a Victorian mystery, you know, and are such fun – about 100 years ago I was doing graduate work in the Victorian sensation novel so this is wonderful to go back to).
I also created a (now empty) blog called The Mystery Machine because I thought it was a great blog title but…it is empty! Maybe it will become a writing blog. I’ll let you know. And I’m going to try and catch up with your blogs, too, over the next days. I’m not gone, in other words – just a little bit tired (this is my 803rd post, would you believe, and that does not include 700+ history posts, yikes!).
