It's That Man Again ...

First of all, I guess I owe you an apology.

I promised you a "Grand Gala Reopening" and what happens?

The Australian dancers went to The Church for a quick drink with their fellow antipodeans yesterday lunchtime and have yet to return. It is believed that they took the food and drink with them, even the exceptionally expensive champage.

The Chippendales turned out to be two chairs and a particularly fine bureau.

Then there was something of a bloodbath when the juggler caught the vegetable man letting the clowns play with his carrot and sprouts. The survivors are being held for questioning.

And, believe it or not, the elephant that the juggler was meant to be minding got free and ate all the buns (sorry EE).

But I refuse to let these minor inconveniences distract me from the business of the day which is my return to blogging.

It's been nearly a month and, in truth, I've been ready to return for a while now. I decided to leave my return until today though for one simple reason: today is the first anniversary of my inaugural entry on this blog.

During the past year, I have posted a grand total of 257 pieces, leading to 2,153 comments. As far as I'm concerned, that's pretty damn good. Yet, at times, I have wondered whether this is quite the right place for me to blog.

Why? Well, for a sex-and-swingers site, my blog is decidedly non-sexual. A quick look at the keywords generated by this blog might just give a clue. At the top of the list come love, head, blogs, service, London, English, weekend and phone. Very racy (though I'm a little worried about "head" )

Believe me, it's not that I don't enjoy sex but I'm far too discreet to write about my own sex life (when I actually have one!). As for erotica, well, I am perpetually frustrated by my inability to write this stuff. Some of you may recall the only time I published such a story. That one is swamped by the countless attempts that simply didn't make it. I keep on trying to improve but then I look at, for example, SweetDarlinAngel's blog and I can't help wondering why I even bother!

And, if we're honest, let's face it, other blog sites provide a number of facilities which This Site as yet does not, in particular the ability to put in links to other sites and the ability to embed images in the text (other than, of course, profile pictures). Tempting ...

But at the end of the day I just can't do it. This is, in online terms, my home. Despite - or, maybe, because of - the fact that I don't write about sex all the time, I am lucky to have a number of regular readers who seem to enjoy what I scribble - or, at least, who are prepared to humour me! And, of course, I've 'met' a lot of people here that I like as well as making some real and valuable friends some of whom I've been lucky enough to meet while others remain e-friends only - so far!

For me to blog elsewhere would not only be a distraction from This Site which I can ill afford (we all know, after all, how hard men find it to multi-task!) but it would also require building up a whole new readership. Self-promotion? Me? Perish the thought!

So here I am and here I stay. You'll have to put up with me for a little longer yet.

Hmmm. This seems to have become very long already and I haven't really told you anything yet. And I had so much that I wanted to report on. Maybe next time.

I guess you'll have to put up with that for a little longer too!

Well done Brother Q...well done!!

Cass ... Nothing little about my buns!

Cannon ... You know what they say: when you're surrounded by fog and mist, life can never fail to surprise you!

EEEE ... I realy am sorry, ma'am. I know how you were looking forward to a couple of buns. One day maybe

Free ... Thanks! And I think that passport is going to come in very useful over the next ten years. Mind you, it all looks so new and pristine and shiny it almost seems a shame to use it!

Helga ... Huge thanks! To think I never realised the proper terms was "bloggyversary" And I love the subtle pun that no one else will get ... for a couple of days, anyway!

Searcha ... Thanks to you too! You should have spoken sooner, though - I gave the Chippendales to Oxfam earlier.

So does that mean you're staying? And what's all this about buns? You're not pregnant are you?

Oh gawd, I'll get me coat!

Thanks for the kind words regarding my ability to tantilize you my dear ... and by the way ...
I've missed stopping by your endless chatter about things less sexual regardless of the natural basis of the site. Who says you need to write things related to that anyhow!
Though a ride on that marvelous elephant would have been nice ... I do LOVE elephants you know, my favorite animal. Ah, well maybe next time you invite me over for a gala there will be one here.

Racing ... Yes, I'm staying. And now you come to mention it, I was meant to have been delivering my demon offspring around now according to that Seer of Seers, Erik Bloodaxe. Shurely shome mishtake ...

SDA ... And good to have you back too! Glad you like my wittering! As for the elephant, I'll look out for one ... in the meantime I do have a trunk, you know (the kind you put clothes in naturally!).

Does this mean a) you're staying, and b) you'll actually visit my blog someday?
