Sadly, the coming month looks even busier with grading, the never ending project of doom (Did I mention it was never ending?), traveling for the holidays, and returning to teaching after an ungodly short winter break (Classes start here January 3 – That is so evil). Don’t give up on CoG. It will be updated, but maybe not at a rapid pace – or with much vigor – or in a form that will actually entertain anybody.
When thinking about how to explain that I didn’t even make my magic “9" entries for November, I wanted to come up with a more interesting excuse than I was “busy.” My absences should always be mysterious and glamorous, just like my real life. Here are some things that I have considered deploying as plausible explanations for my less active blog:
My blog silence shows my political solidarity with the Hollywood Writers Strike.
My blog silence is a political statement in opposition to the Hollywood Writers Strike.
Mattel is currently developing a GayProf action figure (with Gravitas Grip!). Debate is raging about whether or not it will have removable clothes.
I entered rehab.
I refused to enter rehab.
I am still busy interviewing celebrity guest-hosts to take over CoG while I am on vacation.
CoG will soon become a musical on Broadway.
I decided that being a porn star would be more interesting than writing a blog.
When the blog is not updated it is a sign that I am currently deployed as a cosmic agent of karma who prompts individuals to reckon with all the deeds they have done in their life.
I also won the Noble Peace Prize this year and am therefore still sitting through Al Gore’s speech at the ceremony.
Since I have been part of the beta for hulu.com, I can’t stop watching old episodes of Lou Grant.
Though I am not Jewish, I decided to honor Hanukkah by making delicious latkes.
I can’t stop watching the smart M.I.A. video for “Jimmy.”
I am sewing my own version of M.I.A.'s outfit in "Jimmy" to wear around the house.
GayProf has been placed into dry dock so that skilled technicians can scrap off a serious barnacle problem.
My time has been devoted to pitching CoG as a new talk show for the Logo network.
Warner Brothers tapped me to write the new screenplay for the Wonder Woman film.
