Big news soon

There have been two big pieces of good news in my life recently, and I’ve been wanting to tell you about them for weeks, but sadly both place huge demands on my time right now, and I want to write a proper post and not just off-handedly mention that… right. If I haven’t written a blog post explaining all this by, oh, the end of next week, poke me.

Update: The big news has been revealed.

    Wow — awesome teaser!

    I’m just going to sit here hitting ‘refresh’ until you post!

    To be honest I have completely forgotten why I felt compelled to write this, as opposed to just writing it when I had the time.

    I think you did it just to force yourself to do the actual post. (Not that you have the same kind of problem procrastinating that I have. Or used to have, before my country burst into economic flames and hurtled into the ground at 597.082.343 kilometers per hour…. Now I’m in survival-of-the-fittest mode and being very proactive.)

    @Mark: You’d be surprised how many major, life-changing, game-related events I haven’t blogged about. LIke that time I left the games industry O.o

    So you joined a gym?

    @Falko: I don’t think that works on a Speccy.

    In thinking more about your big news, I did a little measuring in my office and I’m concerned that your news may not fit. Can you give us some general dimensions? Are we talking something, say, 3 meters cubed? Bigger?

    (Maybe I could put your news outside. It’s getting colder — is your news temperature sensitive?)

    You know? It’s almost more fun to NOT post the news now.

    So, where are the news? End of the week is approaching rapidly and still no news. Blogging about possible blogs is only half the fun. =oP

    I haven’t been this excited since Christmas. Or maybe it was the 2004 election. Or maybe last night, when I went to get that Snickers that I forgot I bought earlier in the day. Wait — I know! — this is as exciting as anticipating my new web-ordered Levi’s, although Jurie’s news doesn’t have a tracking number….

    Anyway, yes, it’s just — well, words fail…. And I’m so excited for Jurie, too, whatever the news is. Uness it’s something bad or horrible. Then I would be sad. Not overly sad, but just the right amount of sad. Appropriately sad.

    (If it’s really bad maybe he’ll just forget. Or lie to us.)

    Anyway, when he’s ready, he’s ready. No stringing us along, teasing us like a cheap television commercial. I’m sure it will be any day now. Or maybe even today. Or now….
