Not Quite Like Riding a Bike (The Trouble with Titles)

Hello masses, unwashed and otherwise. It's been just over a year since I left you all to your own devices. You're all older and wiser than when I left you. I'm older and...heavier than when I left you.

Don't misunderstand me. It's not like I'm crawling back to you on hands and knees, but, to put this very bluntly, I want you back.

All I know is that I need to get out all these strange, squishy feelings that keep intruding on my me-time. Really, though, I've missed you. You guys were like a second family to me, a second family that I've never met and for all I know could be murderers, rapists, or liberals. Family, yeah. You know who you are.

Everything I said in my previous post is still true. My life with my church family is still as rich as it was, richer even. Like I said before, at the end it felt like all I was doing was complaining. I wasn't adding anything to the dialogue. But I want to come back. There I things I need to say, but it seemed like my sense of humor was being wasted on the cat.

I can't keep doing what I was doing before partly for the aforementioned reasons. I still want to poke Christianity with a sharp stick, to be sure. However, trolling the interwebs for appalling Christian merchandise every other day was getting taxing. I'll definitely still use that as a feature, but it won't be the whole focus of the blog. I've only decided on a couple regular features I want to have here, but I think they're good ideas. Plus it'll give me something to think about in my really boring classes.

Posting might be kind of slapdash until I get the format down. If I can get my hands on what I need I'll be bringing you another post later today to kick off the festivities.

I don't expect everyone to come flocking back. If any old friends show up it'll exceed my expectations. I can't wait to get back into the swing of things.

Hope all is well with you, my friend.

Yay! And of course I remember you!

Welcome back. Glad to hear you are well.

Welcome back to the world of the virtually-living! I'll have to make sure that I have a current linky to ya on my site.

Just wondering if you and the missus ever got those tattoos...

I've never been to this site before, but I just happened to be searching for blogs with the label "please for the love of God take me back," and this post came up!

Okay, that's a lie. Joel's link at Crummy Church Signs brought me here. So, I'm not a former reader, but count me as a new one -- I like what I'm reading so far!!!

I found you through Crummy Church Signs and enjoyed reading your posts. I have a little teeny question. Is there any way you could make your font a little larger -- it's hard to read your excellent posts. No doubt it's my over-40 eyes, but if you have the option, I vote for a larger font size! Looking forward to reading more.
