I'm Back...Kinda...Sorta

I know. I haven't been around much. I'm kind of crawling out from more than two years of personal gunk-i-ness, and my time seems to have contracted dangerously.

But I'm gonna try to post more often than "once in a blue moon."

Not that anyone is really left on the journals. *taps microphone* Heeellooooooo, is this still on?

In any case, I came across this and it made me howl.

Boston tourist Attractions, According to Unhappy Yelp Viewers

I'm not sure what is funnier. The reviews that completely miss the point, or the snark that gets served back.

Makes a perfect companion piece to this thing I wrote (holy cow!) six years ago called To All the Tourists I've Loved (and Not Loved) Before, which is a rumination on what it's like to live in and around a city that's an international tourist destination.

Whelp. Gotta go. I must work. Next up...corporate training. Which I'm putting off. Because I know it's going to be about brainwashing me into believing that being a doormat is the most important job skill I can possibly have.

The joys of corporate America, no?

Welcome back!
It's been great seeing you pop in on the various social media platforms [I'm jackdaws-pocketbook over on tumblr, if you wondered].

Ha! I know what you mean about the tourist situation. I'm up in Vermont and see a lot of similar things here. And my sister's down Boston way, so I've seen the exact behavior that you're talking about. Humans. What can you do?

still working

Yes, the microphone is still working, and I still read your posts

I'm still around - reading more than I'm posting though, despite all my good intentions.

Welcome back!

I'm off-and-on myself, but I am still hanging about.

Glad to see you back, though I don't have much room to talk, given my notably bad posting habits! :)
