Blog? What blog?

Thanks for everyone who commented on my last entry, which was, by my calculations, about six months ago. It seems that I may have jumped the gun with my summer post, since we're just barely getting above sixty. In fact, I hesitate to say anything even now for fear we'll be plunged back into winter again.

Besides suffering from an almost crippling fear that we might never see the sun again, I've also been diagnosed with a severe case of blog amnesia. I can't even claim laziness. It's like I completely forgot that I ever had a blog. I was having a chat with a friend of mine the other day that went a little something like this:

(friend) "So, you were doing so great keeping up with your blog for a while and now it's like you've fallen off the face of the earth. What's your excuse this time?"

(me) "I don't know what you're talking about."

(friend) "You know-- your blog? The one you're constantly neglecting?"

(me) "Hmmm. Doesn't ring a bell."

(friend) "Remember, you made a New Year's Resolution to update it on a regular basis?"

(me) "Now I know you're making this up because I don't make New Year's Resolutions. You must be thinking of someone else."

(friend) "Why would I make something like this up?"

(me) "I don't know. But I'm sure that if I had a blog, I would know about it."

(friend) "You're starting to freak me out! Just admit that you didn't feel like blogging!"

(me) "I admit nothing."

(friend) "I think there might be something seriously wrong with you."

(me) "Remind me why we're friends again?"

So today I succumbed to the temptation of Googling myself and, long story short, I stumbled onto this blog. You can imagine my embarassment.

What is the protocol when apologizing to a friend for denying the existence of your blog? Should I send a card? A cake? A kidney?

How about a signed copy of your book?

You're hilarious - I just had a good giggle. And I'm glad you googled yourself and rediscovered your blog. My life is seriously lacking in Aubrey-ness. Tsk.

And I suggest a pint of gourmet ice cream AND a signed copy of your book. Of course this could be my desire to one up people speaking. Sorry Abel.

This is funny, because I saw your post come up on the sidebar of my own blog and thought, "Aubrey's posting?" and immediately clicked. So, you've got that going for you, anyway.

In all fairness, it wasn't even 6 weeks... you are not as behind as you think. Not to mention that you texted me about Ben and Jerry's ice cream since that last blog post so I'm guessing it was no more than a flourless chocolate cake coma. Good to see you've come out of it. I really like the conversation piece however. Send a cake... not a kidney.

Um...I vote kidney.

Got my new laptop and we moved yesterday! I will knock out fifty pages a day of editing and have your story back to you by next week.

Promise! (Now I HAVE to do it.)
