This is to let you know that the coming week is going to be a weird one for our humble blog. Why? Because we’re moving the fabled CITADEL — the Curmudgeonly Institute for Tactics, Advocacy, and Defense of the Enlightenment Legacy — the secret global nerve center for monitoring events throughout the Creosphere, where your Curmudgeon is headquartered in his luxurious underground control room.
As you know if you’ve been through it since your carefree college days, when you could move almost everything in a single car trip, moving as an adult after years of accumulating stuff is an extremely cumbersome and time-consuming process. Every closet, every shelf, every drawer, is loaded with things we haven’t even looked at for years. Deciding what to keep and what to toss out is quite a chore.
Of course we’ll be keeping the Drool-o-tron™, the irony meter, and the other things described in the Compendium of Curmudgeonly Contrivances.
The actual day of the move is scheduled to be this coming Wednesday, the Fourth of July. Because that’s a holiday, AT&T won’t be able to hook up our internet connection, nor will Comcast be available to connect the cable TV. Those things will have to wait for a day or so. That means starting around next Tuesday, 03 July — when the computer has to be disconnected and boxed up — until probably Friday, 06 July or maybe even later, your Curmudgeon will be off the internet, marooned in meat-space, and unable to attend to our blogging duties. We’ve already changed our telephone lines to wireless phones, so at least that’s one thing we don’t need to worry about.
News of The Controversy between evolution and creationism has been scarce lately, so it’s unlikely that you’ll be missing much even when we’re off-line. Also, holidays like the Fourth of July are when blogging is usually quiescent, because people have other things to do. So actually, the move comes at a good time.
Looking beyond the mess of the coming week, we’re confident that the effort will be worthwhile. The new CITADEL will be stronger and more secret than the current one, and your Curmudgeon’s control room will be even further underground and more luxurious than ever.
Now you know what’s coming, so when we’re off-line next week, no one will be wondering what’s going on. We now resume our customary activities — as soon as we can find something to blog about.
