What a relief!
Late last week blogger’s “robots” decided Sketchy Thoughts looked like spam. Consequently, the blog was “locked”, meaning i could not publish anything. The blogger site assured me someone would check the blog out, and if it was legit it would be unblocked – but otherwise would eventually be deleted!
Needless to say, i was worried!
Happily, just got news: the blog is unblocked, i can publish again.
Funny thing, having to do with my dysfunctional brain and also with the psychology of work and instant gratification – even though i could have used the weekend to write all kinds of interesting shit, the knowledge that i couldn’t just publish it right away was real discouraging. So while i did get some stuff done – look forward to an upcoming review of Amal Saad-Ghorayeb’s Hizbu’llah: Politcs & Religion – not nearly as much as could have. So that’s a self-criticism of sorts…
So what did i do instead of writing?
Not sure if it will be of any use, but i’ve been having fun surfing around adding friends… if i haven’t added you, log on and let me know. Kersplebedeb Myspace is at http://www.myspace.com/kersplebedeb
More later, i promise…
