Because You Demanded It!

Well, a couple of you anyway. :-)

So yes, like Jay-Z and the common cold, I'm back again (Shut up, Omar!) slipping in quietly, hopefully able to settle in comfortably before anybody notices.

What can I say? At one point after signing off here a couple of months ago, I decided I'd start using my LiveJournal account for the more personal kind of blog that I tend to despise, but there's something about LJ I've never liked and I only posted one thing of interest, along with a few dumb memes. LJ's great for commenting and the threaded discussions, but as an online "journal," I just don't like it. There's a cliquey, group-think feel about it, whereas Blogger seems a bit more individualistic.

Maybe I'm just resistant to change? Or, more likely, I just needed something else to do at work?

Whatever the reason, I'm back, reclaiming my original little piece of the Blogiverse and shifting gears a bit as the new title would imply: "guy stuff." From stories about the kids growing up, to our search for a house, to snarky comic book stuff that doesn't fit over at Comic Book Commentary, it'll be different from the less personal, highly political blog it used to be.

Or not. Who the hell knows?

Speaking of the kids, it's been five months since he first saw The Incredibles and Isaac still insists on being called "Dash." There's days where he won't answer to "Isaac" at all, insisting that his name is "Dash" and that we call him that. Last week, he also decided to switch from "Mommy" and "Daddy" to "Mom" and "Dad" to better sync up with his animated alter ego. No movie's had this lasting an effect on him, and now that we have the DVD - amazing, BTW - I have a feeling he'll be starting school in the Fall insisting his teacher calls him "Dash."

Good stuff.

More to come.

Well then it must be no coincidence that I came back on the same day Moon Knight reappears in comics in Marvel Team-Up #7!

is this pronounced Guy Stuff (rhymes with "High Fluff"), or Guy Stuff (rhymes with "Flea Cuff")?

Dyanna said...

HOLY SHIT! I just, on a whim, decided to check and here you are!

I wont get on your case for being away so long...

And, for the record, I've always liked it more when you talk about the family, your likes, dislikes, etc. - just basically, the softer side of Guy. I mean, maybe that's a bit fruity, but the political stuff never did it for me. I like to hear about the day to day.

Dyanna said...

oh and re. The Incredibles, have you checked out the extras where they have the profiles of all the superheros? There's an icon to listen to them speak and its altogether hilarious! There's also Frozone and Mr. Incredible's commentary on an old cartoon. All in all, sooo much fun!

Guy LeCharles Gonzalez said...

Rich: Guy as in guillotine, mofo!

Dyanna: Yeah, right, "On a whim." Stalker!!!! And yes, the DVD extras are some of the best Pixar's come up with. Isaac and I fight over which ones to watch.

Michael Jordan comes to mind...then theres that lil' ditty by The Clash that goes: Should I stay or should I go now?
Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
An' if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know

Welcome back.

Dyanna said...

Ahhhh, get over yourself! pfft.

Dude... I'd make fun of comeback #532516, but it's like defecating on a dead baby at this point.
