A rigorous soft-toy reconfiguration exercise

Here at Aethelread the Unread, we’re committed to providing you with the very best blog-reading experience.  Day in and day out, our hard-working team of blogger strives to provide you with the finest content he can squeeze out of his addled brain.  As with any busy organisation, things don’t always go according to plan, and we are as disappointed as you are when that happens.

Unfortunately, our hard working team of blogger occasionally experiences a temporary spasm of mental disequilibrium, and we are sorry to have to tell you that this has been one such occasion.  For the last week-and-a-bit our Content Creator neglected his proper function – concentrating on providing you, the reader, with your regular dose of mildly diverting whimsy.  Instead he has spent much time wailing like a curiously aggressive banshee across various outposts of the blogosphere, including, on occasion, the comments of this very blog.  You will be pleased to hear that he has since been recaptured, and is undergoing Intensive Chocolate Therapy at a secure location known only as The Sofa.

Once he is deemed fit to return to normal blogging duties, we will be engaging him in a rigorous soft-toy reconfiguration exercise.  Specifically, he will be informed that, if we give him his toys back, we will be really pissed off if he throws them all out of the pram again.  We are also bringing forward our efforts to develop an intensive monitoring and surveillance system that will enable us to identify a developing Toy: Explosive Distribution Event (TED-E) before it has reached its full destructiveness.  It is hoped that early intervention in the form of tranquilising infusions of Scrubs and Eggheads will enable a replacement bus service to be provided during future events.

Aethelread the Unread – Making Blogging Dull Since March 2008.

Ah well, at least I didn’t take the blog down this time.  Although, my god, I wanted to yesterday afternoon.  Anyway, I’ve realised there’s a pattern to this recurring situation.  I might blog about it sometime.  You have been warned…

    Hope you feel better soon. Scrubs is indeed theraputic, if only for the possibility of fantasies involving Dr Cox (and/or Jordan, in my case).

    Please don’t fold up and disappear in the blogospheric aether. ‘Cos…well…’cos I’d miss you.

    BTW, I’m told Heroes is good therapy too.

    Thanks for the extra comments.

    Kapitano – thank you, that’s a lovely thing to say. :o) Don’t worry – i have these little crises from time to time, but in the long run they don’t stop me from burbling on in the usual way… ;o)

    lsnduck – why thank you, sir, that’s most kind. :o)

    *cough*cough*you don’t know me but I read like four posts of your blog this weekend?*

    You know, the archived posts are here if anyone starts going into aethelread withdrawal… you don’t have to feel beholden to regular updates… although of course I’m sure it’s something you *want* to do and that your readers want to do… but all I’m saying is, it isn’t so urgent that you have to use ALL of that chocotherapy yourself… can I have some?

    Hi Adair. Thanks for your comment, and your other comments on various posts. Sorry this one took a while to appear – i think WordPress must have got suspicious because you posted a few in a fairly short space of time. Anyway, it was nothing personal. :o)
