Climbing Back

"They" were right... these blog posts aren't going to write themselves!

It's been awhile, but I'm back. (And just in time to make some Charlie Sheen jokes... Wait, what's that you say? Old news?? Hmmmmm. I suppose I can provide insightful commentary on that whole Nipplegate fiasco, then. I bet Justin Timberlake's career is over after that scandal. What? He was in a critically-acclaimed motion picture?? *shakes head in disbelief*)

So where have I been? Well, climbing back after dropping off the face of the earth isn't an easy task to do. First, one must find the edge of the earth. Then, he must be foolish enough to drop (or be pushed). Finally, he must find the intestinal fortitude to climb back up.

"What does that even mean?"

I am moving in a new career direction and it hasn't been easy.

"Oh. Why not just say so in the first place?'

Well, you guys know how I roll here at the Ducks. (Like starting a sentence with "Well," twice in the same post. Who else could possibly pull that off? Maybe Shakespeare? Possibly a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters? Probably Charlie Sheen! Other than that, no one.)

Yes! I worked my Charlie Sheen bit in today. That, my friends, is winning.


  1. I mentioned your blog to my boss today. Actually, I used it to excuse my faux pas. He told me to get my ducks in a row today. I chuckled and said I preferred them out of a row. The silence on the phone made me back track quickly and explain the humor behind it, and absolutely not the sass.

  2. Well . .

    I hope all is working out for you in your new career, and the writing adventure.

    Good luck John.


  3. It has been awhile. Sometimes we all just need a break from the blogging world, whether imposed or not. Find what works for you.

  4. Isn't it funny how life gets in the way of writing? I mean, we sit down - feel this need to create that comes from the core of our being. YET - "reality" takes a hold on our senses and pushes us into that practical swing known as the rest of the population. Write once a year. I'll still check in...either way, its all good :) Good luck Mr.Ducks!
