Get Out the Candles
This Live Journal turns four today. I wanted to post a long entry about the evolution of my thinking about blogging. But I'm too busy and stressed today to get it right. So I'll stick to the Reader's Digest condensed version.

As I've written here before, I started blogging because I wanted to write about blogging. I figured that my words would carry more weight if I actually participated in the forms of communicative action my project was designed to analyze. Somewhere along the way, though, I fell in love. And the end I'd had in mind seemed rather mean compared to the means of getting there. I thank all of you, my readers, for that shape shift. I thank you for the support you've provided, your willingness to share both pleasure and pain, and, most of all, for your refusal, however unwitting, to let your "you" become absorbed in whatever "you" has suited my purposes.

I am at a crossroads. So is my blogging. Whatever I end up doing in the future, though, I will treasure the time spent with all of you. Feel free to help yourself to as many pieces of cake as you want. I need to limit my sugar intake, lest my performance be adversely affected. Plus, it will make me smile to see little dots of icing at the corner of your lips.

Ummm .... cake.

Coincidentally, we had J and D over tonight for her birthday, which is tomorrow. We didn't eat cake, exactly ... strawberry shortcake. I promise not to wipe the icing away until I go to bed.

Yes, cake!

I'm sure I'll feel better after the Cal game, unless I feel worse. Sigh.

I hope you get a cute pic of your blog with cake all over its face. Or is that the stereotypical 3 year-old birfday party?

Oh, and see you at Okervil!
