Ok so I haven't been the best....

Where's Mike?

I know, I know, I've hardly blogged at all lately.

I could say that I've been really busy and haven't had an extra minute for writing.

I could say that nothing at all has been happening that is worth blogging about.

Of course, neither of those statements would be true. Truth is, I've been lazy. Just haven't been in a writing mood.

I blame George R.R. Martin. His "Song of Ice and Fire" series had, until just a few weeks ago, taken up all my spare time. No longer would I read for a while and then take out my notebook to write a few lines. Instead, I just had to race through this (so far) 4 book series.

Not that I'm complaining...great series and well worth reading. Assuming he ever finishes the next book(s). This was actually my second time through the first four books and I loved it even more on the second read-through. Oh, incidentally, "A Game of Thrones" is book one of the four that are currently out.

Moving goal for this year was to do an average of one blog a week. I see that this blog will be #29 for 2009, which falls woefully short. HOWEVER, it is more than 2 a month, so I'm over halfway to my goal. For this I'll give myself a passing grade, albeit barely :) .

I did have a few ideas for blogs in my laziness. I was planning to review the above mentioned book series, but it would be sooo much work. Suffice to say it is excellent and you should all go read it.

I also wanted to review the excellent exclusive trailer for the Transformers Classics Optimus Prime figure that was made and released by Fansproject .

This lovely addition to the already excellent Classics Prime has made it probably my favourite Optimus figure of all time, or at least the second best after the original 1984 figure. Anyway, I took a bunch of pics and this review may actually come to pass some day, so I'll leave it at that for now. If you want to learn more, you can always check out the link posted above.

And of course, there have been some more personal goings on as of late, but I really ought not get into them on the 'net. Suffice to say that life continues to be interesting.

And now it's almost Christmas. I'll definitely get a Christmas blog in after the fact, and have a big party to go to tonight, so you'll probably get to check out some of the cool gifts I got soon enough. I'm already using a great one! More on that later. For now, in case I don't get back till after the 25th, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
