Good evening noble reader(s). For those of you who don’t know, James—I’m sorry, Durandal—has recently departed on the twenty year plane ride it takes to get to the mystical far off land of Oz, where he shall be communing with the kangaroos, dodging boomerangs, wrestling crocodiles, and visiting his sister for the next month.
This is all well and good, but as you may or may not have noticed, Jimbo is a bit of a madman when it comes maintaining a strict Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule around these parts. Further, since he doesn’t want to have to do anything resembling work on his fancy-pants exotic getaway, it has fallen on me, an irregular contributor, and a lazy, lazy man, to maintain that curly-haired Polish tyrant’s ludicrously demanding three day a week schedule.
It is with this gun to my back that I have decided to make the best of the situation, and declare June “Chris Month” on Trouble Thinking! Starting Monday (because let’s face it, this post is one-hundred percent space filler), join me on an exciting roller coaster ride of all-Chris, all-the-time, as I struggle to come up with three different ideas a week! Will I be able to do it? Will any of these articles be worth anything? Will I by the end of the month have devolved into a weeping, moaning mess curled up into a fetal position in the corner, anxiously awaiting James’ return? Will I be able to limit myself to just one superhero post a week?
Yes folk(s), it is going to be a horrible experience for all of us, but with a little bit of luck, we’ll all come out of this a little stronger. You will have learned to exercise patience for nonsense worthy of Buddha, and I’ll have figured out if I’m actually capable of doing anything resembling actual work.
May God help us all.
