Rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated

...but not by much.

Yeah, I'm here. Kicking, screaming, bitching and moaning, but here. Not much new there.

I'm trying to make the rounds to those of you that are still left.

I'm starting out slow. Like zimmer-frame slow, so bear with me. Sheesh, I don't even know how Blogger works anymore.

Further updates as events warrant.

Ok, lemme try this again since Blogger ate my comment.

Ahem!

Glad yer back! And I thought I took looong hiatuses!

AA said...

Aw... you were one of my first blogchums. Welcome back.

laughykate said...

Why hello! Ihave randomly checked back since you stopped.Can you still not tell your left from your right?

Fat Sparrow said...

Xul -- It was a time warp. Completely unavoidable, and besides, the streams were crossed.

Annie -- Thank you!

LaughyKate -- Awww, thank you.

No, I still can't, and since we're seriously considering moving to Northern Ireland, I should be wreaking death and destruction everywhere as I drive all over the road. Matthew Broderick's got nothing on me. Scary, no?

laughykate said...

It fills me with glee when I hear of people who are as left-right challenged as me.

Pink Drama said...

sparrow - come to mississippi. people here completely ignore the stripes on the road (if there are any on the road you are traveling) and drive on either side or in the middle. just keep your insurance up to date and the local number to law enforcement on speed dial and you'd be just fine.

p.s. i'm actually quite serious. it's not at all strange to see someone driving in either lane or in the middle. cause ya know, sometimes, the middle just works best. especially when avoiding small animals, random mules and horses, and the occasional pot hole.

Fat Sparrow said...

PD -- Yeah, it was semi-rural where I grew up here in SoCal, and it was the same way. Lots of dairies, too, so you drove down the middle of the road to avoid the dead cows/calfs that were left out on the side of the road for the Dead Cow Collector Guy (yes that is his official title).

No offense, but if I ever find myself living in Mississippi, please kill me. Everybody east of the Rockies has very large insects and lots of them, and humidity.

Pink Drama said...

no offense taken. it's not the insects you have to watch out for, it's the snakes. damn cottonmouth snakes are everywhere that water is.

as far as the humidity goes - well, now you see why most men wear baseball caps and women have big hair in the south. even 85% humidity can't touch a southern baptist's hair. of course, i wouldn't lite a match anywhere near one either, but for a totally different reason.

Crystal said...

i am glad you're back!

when i came here, i had to click that i was entering a site that was unsuitable for children.

where's the nekkid mens?

gimme a minute said...

Yes, where?

I mean, glad you're back.

iLL Man said...

Aloha!

Since you were gone.....

Clairwil has taken up professional darts and opened a Porpoise sanctuary in the Seychelles.

Billy has eaten his own weight in Gouda and declared himself a planet.

I have been (briefly) attractive to the opposite sex.

You haven't missed much..........

Fat Sparrow said...

PD -- Blue Flame, huh?

Crystal -- Well, I have that pic of NiolK's balls, but nothing other than that, sorry. You can go look at Old Knudsen's blog, but his nekkid men have boobs, too. Damn his trips to Thailand.

Apparently I say "cunt" and "fuckwit" a lot, and people have issues, even though I had my blog listed as NSFW. Go figure. It was pre-emptive, so I wouldn't get flagged by Blogger, and I didn't want to take my blog private, as I am the Queen of Overshare and TMI, so where would the fun be?

Gimme -- Well, of course you are. It's not like you had anything to keep you occupied while I was gone, duh.

Ill Man -- So, same old, same old, then?

Manuel said...

good to see you back.....it's been one of those sort of weeks.....

Clairwil said...

Welcome back!

Manuel said...

so whatchaupto?

Fat Sparrow said...

Manuel -- Yes, yes it has. Love your new place, feckin' brilliant.

Me? I'm currently selling off everything I own on Craigslist to be able to go to Norn Iron, half-writing horribly depressing blog posts and then deleting them, having random nervous breakdowns, and tomorrow I get to have my vajayjay poked and prodded by Dr. Cruella DeVil.

And you?

Clairwil -- Thank you! I figured I wasn't dead yet, so I had better climb out of the cart.

savannah said...

well, ok then, sugarpie! ;~D xoxoxo

(i should have known you were posting again!)

ellie said...

Welcome back, I sort of missed you first time round so I'm looking forward to the new stuff.

dai said...

What a nice surprise to see you're still kicking about love. It's been nearly two years, welcome home.

The Hangar Queen said...

I've run live wires through all the trees in my yard just for your East Coast cousins that like to shit on my car.

I still have to sweep the bits of corpses up but it is such a giggle to see them explode on contact.

Fuck all y'all.

Oh,and welcome back.

Conan Drumm said...

Well HELLO, and howarya, ya gorgeous auld pullet?

Fat Sparrow said...

Savannah -- Yeah, not so much with the posting. I'm still reallyreally busy selling off everything I own and getting ready to move.

Ellie -- Nice to meet you. Not much new stuff going on, sorry, see above.

Dai -- Thank you! It's kinda good to be back.

Dev -- Well, you know, what with that whole East Coast/West Coast thang, those homies prolly deserve what they get, know what I mean, G?

Conan -- Duuuuuude!!! I checked out your blog a while back, but you've gone all country club.

Brief summary: We're dead broke and moving we're in with my folks to save up to move to Norn Iron to move in wih the Spouse Sparrow's mum, hopefully we'll be there either well before or well after the Marching Season next year. Good times. Not what I thought I'd be doing at almost 40, but hopefully we can get a fresh start. The Fledgling Sparrow's almost 18, and got a good scholarship to a local Uni, so she'll be staying here. The Nestling Sparrow's 5, and he'll be coming with us.

And what have you been up to?

Conan Drumm said...

Taking a sabblogatical and trying to concentrate on bringing in some moolah!

Eddie Waring said...

Where are the tacos? Would you like me to oil your zimmer frame?

Fat Sparrow said...

Eddie -- Here, and yes. The Spouse Sparrow's been neglecting my zimmer frame.

Eddie Waring said...

So even I have managed to cobble together a couple of posts. We are either doing this together or not at all....
