I started this whole mess when I was unemployed and laid up sick. That was 2007. Now, in 2011, I’m unemployed and laid up sick. So, finding myself with little else to occupy my time, I return, like the dog to its vomit, to FIB.

I was inspired by my friends Colleen and Matt Swaim who have resurrected their own blogs though now joined together, containing within the new construct the most powerful elements of their once-powerful individual blogs. Like Serpentor . I figured, “hey, if my younger, more talented, and more attractive friends with jobs and three published books between them can reappear on the ‘sphere after a long dry spell, why can’t I?”

Let’s see what we can do here, shall we?
