If you live in the US, and if you have a TV, you are by now familiar with this little piggy. People seem to be divided into two camps where he is concerned - we love him, or we want to reduce him to crispy bacon goodness immediately.
I happen to love the little guy. He's got a lot of enthusiasm. I can relate, especially when he's engaged in this activity:
Full tilt, downhill, gaining momentum as he goes, with the pinwheels flying and the wind in his face. Wheeeeee!!! Indeed.
This is how my life feels at the moment. Exhilarating, exciting, and just on the edge of a potential crash if the speed gets too much greater.
It's been a wonderful and awesome opportunity to be your Saturday Whore, and I want to thank everybody for reading, commenting, and supporting my writing habit. However, in the interest of my own safety and that of others, (yep, saving my bacon) I have made the difficult decision to step away.
Tomorrow Jeffe will introduce my replacement, and I can just tell you that she will be a fun and exciting addition to the blog.
As a reminder of my Canadian Roots, I leave you with the following clip - which has no relevance to anything, other than the fact that it's from the movie Canadian Bacon.

Whee Whee Whee All the Way Home

Kerry Schafer spends more time in jail than the average citizen, not to mention the number of hours logged in hospital emergency rooms. This has little to do with any twisted disregard for the law or tendency to accidents, and everything to do with her job as a crisis response professional. Her home world, guarded by one preternaturally large black dog, includes three teenagers of the male variety, a beloved Viking, two cats, and a goldfish. When she can tear herself away from service in the empires of work and home, she's most likely writing her way into some alternate reality, fortified by a tankard of coffee and the weirdest music mix ever.
