So Very Sleepy

The upside to being the only writer at a review site is that I'm able to manage all the content, say whatever I want, and take all the kudos when it goes well. The downside is that if I don't write the review, nobody does.

Take tonight, for instance. Usually, I write my reviews on Sunday night, Tuesday night and Thursday night, so I can have them ready Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. But last night I got three hours of sleep thanks to a case of particularly abusive heartburn, and I'm far too tired to think coherently enough to write an entertaining review. Usually I like to astound you with my scalpel-sharp wit; tonight I feel about as sharp as a rubber chicken.

So to all the people who check in faithfully three times a week, I'm afraid all you get to entertain you this Friday is a crappy note about how you won't be entertained this Friday. But I'll write a review tomorrow night, and I'll make it extra good, just to make up for making you wait.

Wait, so you are saying you actually put an effort into writing these reviews?!?
(Where is that devil smiley when you need one?)

I know I make it look easy, but yeah, they take me a little while.
