Well, hello there!


Instead of pretending that it hasn't been over a year since my last post, I guess I'll reluctantly do one of those quick here's-what's-been-going-on posts to get everyone up to speed. But for future reference... I'm back, filled with cynicism, in desperate need of venting, and can't wait to get "Fuck You Friday" back on track!

So what has your cynical professor been up to this past year? What's been ensuring that this blog never got on his to-do list for 13 months?

1. Remember that whole new baby thing? So it turns out they eat up a lot of time and energy. Like, he's always wanting food, attention, and resources... what the FUCK. I'm like, "get a god damn job and start pulling your own weight here man." One-year-olds can mow the lawn or some shit, right? Right.

2. Remember that whole new job, new city thing? That's still happening. It still kicks ass too, except for the part where my to-do list fills up multiple computer screens.

3. I had a dream about 5 months ago involving a shortage of apple sauce in America and a talking cow.

4. It turns out I still really enjoy making lists in blog posts. Oh and I'm on a minimalism kick right now... so I cut out all the excess in the blog (content and design). You likey? I may toy around with the design more, as I'm sure so many of you give a shit. I'll just stop talking about this now.

5. Television happened. The return of Arrested Development came and went; I was underwhelmed (except for Portia de Rossi's malpractice-lawsuit face, daaaamn). House of Cards kicked ass and I'm waiting on Mrs. C to catch up so I can start season 2. DON'T YOU DARE put any spoilers in the comments section or I will come to your home and taint-spank your thunder-pudding... you and your whole family. I watched both Sherlock and Elementary -- I can appreciate both, but I'm team Elementary (I like the greater deviation from the original plot/stories).

[EDIT: 6. Turns out another thing I missed was the closing of Google Reader and how that made me lose all of my RSS feeds from my favorite bloggers. Sigh... I've got a lot of catching up to do now. Fuck.]

So yea, those things totally occupied a year of my time, and now you are completely caught up. So what can you expect from Cynicism 101 in the near future? Broadly, whatever the fuck I decide to post -- I kid. Really though, "Fuck You Friday" is totally coming back (I miss the shit out of that). You can also expect a few conversations between me and my brain, I'll answer any new mail that comes in, I'll try to keep Dr. Optimism away, and expect to see me on Twitter. Booyah.

  1. Yup. Blogging is making a comeback.
    I could not care less if they run out of applesauce, but if cows start talking I've got a problem.

  2. Totally ignoring your meme by the way. Seriously, psychology 101. I need coffee.

  3. Kevin Spacey's character changes political parties, then citizenships, and at the end of season 2 he's an MP in Canada.

  5. I care. I care tremendously. Even if part of the reason you've been ignoring us is so you could watch TV and have dreams about talking cows.
