It comes!

Well, the IKEA delivery folks are scheduled for next week. It’ll probably take me a month to, very slowly, put together all the drawers and bookcases and display cases I have ordered. The bookcases will require me to hoist my aching knees up the ladder, I’m afraid. Falling off has a higher probability than I would like to admit.

If I never post again, know that your mad admin died under an avalanche of particle board. There are worse ways to go.


Your mad admin is now moved into his own place. As is usual with moving, I am bone tired. Getting used to a new place at my advanced age and advanced madness is quite the undertaking, but I’ll settle in given time. At least there is less dog barking going on here than at my previous abode.

Maybe I’ll start posting more often than twice a year. Not that it matters at all, at all, to Readers who are merely Mythical.

To write or not to write

Your mad admin is toying with the idea of writing down some of his memories. They’re sure to be quite boring memories, of course, for I am neither a devil nor a saint. Although my habit of switching from first person to third person and back again probably tilts me a bit towards the devil side.

Forgive me my little peccadilloes.

Being quiet

Another couple of months have gone by, and I’ve posted nothing, as per usual. I really don’t have anything to say, I guess.

I’m currently waiting to move out of my current living arrangement, which is less conducive to thought than I would wish it to be. Perhaps once I move, I’ll have something more to say. Right now all I have are great feelings of oppressiveness. Hardly interesting for anyone to read, let alone for me to write.

I mean, sure, your mad admin is quite mad, but there’s mad and then there’s sinking deeper into the madness.


Years ago your mad admin moved from his midwest American home state down to a southwestern state. Part of the reason for the move was to find better job prospects; that only turned out middling well. I did not starve.

But mostly, the reason was to get the hell away from the snow.

Change for the sake of change

Well, WordPress changed everything again. Now your mad admin has to figure out a whole new way to write his insane postings.

I don’t mind change when there’s something to be gained from the change.  I suppose the big companies who use WordPress might be gaining something to have a new editor with which to shove their advertising down your throat when you visit their sites.  For me, though, this is just useless.  Yeah, they’re keeping the old editor available as a plug in, but I have enough experience with useless change to know that I should start learning the new stuff now.

Perhaps by the time I get fairly good at this one, they’ll change it again to something else.

Hopefully this works

Your mad admin has once again shuffled around things behind the scenes on the site. Hosting company has been changed, thanks to some much cheaper hosting as well as a pretty good Black Friday deal.

None of this should affect any readers here, not only because Readers here are only of the Mythical kind. If things go wrong, though, it’ll be a right royal row getting any of it fixed.

Moving in the digital world is almost as bad as moving in the physical world.
