Ghost Blog

There was a blogger out there back when I first started blogging named Jo. She was a LA-based painter/photogrpaher, thoughtful and funny and talented. Some of you out there may have followed her. One day she causally mentioned that she and her husband were taking a look at a new house.

And she was never heard from in the blogoshere again. In that arena, anyway. Her blog is still out there, but it's like a ghost blog, unchanged for the last 8 months or so.

I'm hoping that won't happen to me, as we enter the hellish sucking vortex of closing on the new house.

Still battling with the hallowed financial institution which rhymes with "Skank of America" to get the loan finalized by the closing date. I get the sense my "loan officer" is doing bong hits in the bathroom stalls betwixt calls from me asking him what paperwork is still needed which he neglected to tell me about 2 weeks ago.

Hard to believe these guys had to be bailed out by the government.

Well, maybe this is good news for you, maybe not. I just got an email from Jo (which is good news unequivocally) and she and the other Underpantsers had some tough times, but she's actually preggers and on bedrest, hence the absence. Says things are mellowing, though, and she should be rejoining us soon.

Courage indeed.

I just heard from her too. Best of luck to you.. keep one foot on this blog at all times.

Good luck with all of this. You wrote on my blog that moving is hard, and it is, but making a change feels so wonderful once you get there...

That's great news, Eric. I was, as I think I've told you, worried she got swallowed up by the collapsing housing market.

Daze, I've got another month of marching to go and things will begin to calm, I think. It really is a long way to Tipperary.

Hil, it'll go dark for awhile, I assume, waiting for a new internet hook-up. So glad to hear Jo is doing alright.

I think the wonderful bit begins tomorrow, Sarah. Thanks for the uplift.

It's pretty hard keeping up with blogs at times, I have a few and they are hard to keep posting stuff on them every week.
