Atrociously late!

January 25, 2010 - Meg Alexander
"You're atrociously late," my boss told me (last week) after asking if I'd seen the Post-it stuck to my computer screen, the message reading plain and simple: "BLOG!!!!"

Yes, I had seen it, and no, I didn't really have an excuse, aside from the sinus infection that knocked me out for several days and the holidays and the ... snow? ... and the aliens who ate my computer??? Nope, no good excuse here.

As reporters, we're accustomed to having deadlines hanging over our heads, but for most of us, working ahead isn't really in our nature. You could say "Procrastination" is my middle name, so when it comes to something like blogging, something we're free to do on our own time, with no set assignment for what or when to blog, I'm ... frelled.* I can only promise to do better in the future, so long as you promise not to hold me to it.

*In case you're unfamiliar with Farscape lingo — the greatest sci-fi television series ever! — "frell" is literally the universal swear word, covering any and all scenarios one could possibly imagine.
