Hello Internet. I’m Jester M. Pear. Welcome to the last post to this blog for a long while.
<<Hey peeps. I’m Joe, Jester’s Personing Person (that’s a technical term). And I’m mostly the reason this is happening.>>
I’m writing to let you know that I need to be elsewhere for a while. Not necessarily taking a break as much as being forced to cease production of content by an external force.
<<So I’m going to be losing a proper laptop for a while, and I don’t have a real way to let Jester write these to the standard he demands from me.>>
As low as those standards are, I must say.
<<Shoosh. You know we don’t have a lot of spare time and energy on our hands. Motivation is something we need to allocate for our own sake.>>
I understand that on a logical level. On a more real note, we should be producing more than we are and we should be making a backlog while we are holidaying. There are books we need to be critiquing and readers who need knowledge about what’s hot and what’s third-person science-fiction swill (whoo, callbacks!).
<<Do you want a pony and a helicopter with that?>>
Fine. I understand you are a human being with limitations. But you should pay me some more attention! I’m not here explicitly to bail you out whenever you have an English assignment due in less than 12 hours.
<<Something we can agree on. But that isn’t the point. The point that my Learned Colleague is trying to make is that we’ll be unable to post for a good while. As in, we don’t know when we’re coming back.>>
<< Don’t be like that. But we need to go. Semi-permanently.>>
Down, down into the darkness we go; blessed we shall be to return to the light.
<<So for the last time for a long time.>>
Yours: J.M. Pear
