Internet Finds

Ahoy! I’m still alive, apparently.

I’m not dead yet. Please excuse my absence from blogging. Life’s been either a whirlwind or a dead-end street. There is no in-between.

There is a list of blog posts waiting to be furiously typed out and published.

There is a slew of plot ideas waiting to be let out.

There is this book called “World War Z” waiting to be finished.

There is a new template for this website waiting to be put together.

There is absolutely no way I am in sound condition to do any of those. Do you know why? For a week or so now, our housekeeper had to take an emergency leave and go back to her province. So it’s just me and the two other ladies, plus two more girl dogs (one absolutely just chill and the other seemingly forever running and jumping around just to see which one of us — me, my mom, my sister — would drop on the floor, curl up, and sob, all sanity broken) and one male cat (dubbed “asshat” but we say that with loving fondness, really, although he is exactly that half the time) for now. And you know what? Those were the longest 7+ days in my life. THE LONGEST. And most excruciating.

I have to clean up dog poop every morning when I get home. (I’m in the night shift.) I have to collect all the trash bags at home and bring them out. If I’m lucky, I even get to clean up cat poop. I know, I know. Too much poop. Too much whining. Why am I even sharing this? Because misery loves company, didn’t you hear?

*huff, huff, puff, puff*

Wow. That sounded so dramatic. But if you’ve been a regular reader of Foxes & Fangs (even way back when it was hosted in WordPress), you’d know that this blog runs on histrionics and hyperbole, with (slight) sarcasm as a form of humor thrown in. So word of the wise: Be ye not so serious here.

Okay, now that I have gotten that off my chest: Regular programming here in Foxes & Fangs will resume soon. Like, next week soon. And guess what’s lined up? Something about getting over your feelings for someone close to you, round-up of awesome tips on how to make your Instagram account serve its true purpose, and things to do + places to visit in Taipei, because guess who’s going there this year? *tee-hee!* So please don’t forget to drop by here next week! For now, here are a few of my favorite blog posts (shameless plugging, I know):

And that’s it for me, folks. Again, please excuse my radio silence over here. If you want to suggest anything or ask something, do not hesitate to contact me here. I reply within three days. If I don’t, assume that I have either been abducted by aliens or mauled by my mythical pet giraffe, which I forgot to feed. So with 110% concentration, please scatter on the floor some vanilla scented perfume in the shape of a crescent moon while muttering under your breath, “All hail, the glow cloud!” four times. That works in pulling me back to this world. Sometimes. (Mad props to you if you caught the WTNV reference. You are my new bestfriend!)

I’m kidding. I’ll reply. Of course I’ll reply. *pause* Just not to rude emails. The world is already a screwed up place with pockets of hurt and anger thrown here and there. No need to add to the negativity, don’t you think so, too?

Until then, don’t do anything I wouldn’t do! Ta-ta for now!
