Technical Difficulties

Well, that was anticlimactic. Just as my spirits were freshly lifted and I was ready to plow back into the chronicles of Bean, my digital camera decided to commit suicide. Drag. So, while we pause for a brief but triumphant reprieve as I sort out a replacement, enjoy these slightly older but hitherto unblogged Bean snaps:

Rumors of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

I recently received a phone call from a worried relative who thought some great unpleasantness must have befallen me since I hadn't updated this blog in, gosh, a very long time. And fair enough too, as this is how a great many people outside my direct social circle keep tabs on me, so to you all I'm ever so sorry to have worried you.

Truth is something relatively unpleasant did befall me, but not in the life-threatening sense, more in the time-to-sort-out-your-shambles-of-a-life sense. And so sort it out I did, which required a diverting of surplus time and energy that would usually have gone towards updating this here digi-biography. But I'm back to full power now, if not full organization, and will commence with the semi-regular missives on Bean's comings and goings.

For now, bullet point development updates:
  • Bean now spews forth a dictionary of nonsense-speak, with a liberal sprinkling of 'Mama' and 'Dada' thrown into the mix.
  • He also now identifies the correct figures as Mama and Dada, respectively.
  • He's got four big ol' teeth, two up top, two downtown, all front and center. There's a fifth on the way.
  • He's walking now. Started off stringing a few ambitious steps together, refined his stroll to a more manageable width, and can now shuffle about freely like a mad little penguin.
More later. Like I said, I'll try and keep on top of this blog but if it does go quiet again you can check the following net spots before calling the cops to report my disappearance:

My Facebook page.
Bean's Facebook page.
My seldom used Twitter account.
My Gaming Blog.
My (somewhat neglected) Work Blog.
