There are so many wonderful conceits about blogging. My favorite is the assumption that anyone else would care what I have to say about anything. I tell myself that you're not really here just for the giveaways.

Another thing I tell myself is that I'm missed when I take a day off.

Stop laughing.

The point is, when I take a little time off I feel like I have to say something. Which is silly because we all know that we don't check in on other blogs on a daily basis, we check our feeds to see what new posts are up. At least that's what I do.

But there's still this irrational need to say something when I'm taking a day or two off. I guess it's like calling in sick-- though in this case I'm calling in lazy. It's my birthday and I'm in a do-nothing mood. So I'm going to take a mini-vacation and do a whole lot of nothing for a couple of days. You won't have time to miss me though (I told you to quit laughing) because I'll be back with the winners of some contests and a guest post by Wednesday.

Oh, dang. I missed your birthday!! Well, next year be sure not to have it on the one day a week I'm not glued to the computer!

Hope your day off was magnificent.

Happy late birthday!
