Okay, Fuck It, I'll Blog.

All right, I give in, I'll continue the blog. I do kind of miss it, it doesn't really cost me anything, and if anyone is stupid enough to get into English teaching because of me, then they deserve what they get.

In fact, maybe I should go the opposite route, and try to encourage as many people as possible to get into English teaching, and also start their own blogs. That will kill it as dead as anything.

Thanks to all the people who sent me emails; your kind words would have moved me if I had any feelings left. (NOTE my pristine use of mixed third and second conditionals.)

I've been ill for the last three days with some kind of throat infection -- the first time I've ever missed work due to illness, that I can recall. When I swallow, it feels like a razor blade is being rammed down my throat. I mean, if you hurt your foot or something, you can just try to stay off your foot -- but try to get through the day without swallowing.

Let me be the first to congratulate you on your return to blogville.
If nothing else, it will give me something else to do on the Internet besides look at porn and violate intellectual copyright laws.

What if Charlie did blog man?

sweet, the X is back!

I got into teaching before I met your blog so, I'm sorry, you cannot take credit for my induction.

However, you have given me a more realistic view of the gig than what is portrayed on Dave's or in my Linguistics program, and I thank you for it.

If they get into ESL from you, it'll still be much safer than if they get into the Family and don't blog.
