Why I had to tell Arianna no.

I know that both of my readers have been wondering whether I am going to abandon this humble blog in favor of Ariana Huffington's new venture. The answer is no.

Disapointed? Well, so was Ms. Huffington. But I explained to her, look, I have barely been able to keep up with this blog over the last month, what with all the xeroxing and manuscript transcription I've been up to. She tried to argue that her venture is more important than my research, but I stared at her in disbelief and she just shook her head. Besides, the post of overseeing the "Recent Archival Finds" section was already taken, dammit. But Ms. Huffington was relieved when I suggested that David Mamet might be willing to fill in for me.

So fear not: in less than a week I will be up to more of my usual sporadic mischief. In the meantime, wish me good luck with the music catalogue work and a safe trip home.

Good luck with the music catalogue work! I am very curious to see where your research takes you.

Regarding Huffington's venture, I don't think this is going to go anywhere. The number of celebs who write their own blogs and update them regularly can be counted on one hand.

You have three readers now. I like it here. I don't know who Ariana Huffington is. But then I'm Nerval from Portugal.
