So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodnight

So if anyone ever checks this anymore, you will notice that I haven't written a damn thing in almost a month. I've been blogging for a year and a half, and this is absolutely the longest break I've taken. It's for good reason: two very important things have happened that have altered how interesting this blog can be (assuming it was interesting before):

1. I started my real job, which I love, and which forbids me from blogging about anything I want to talk about. It's a real pity because my job is fascinating (and so are some of the characters I work with) but I'm not about to risk getting fired over a blog five people read. I could maintain blogging about my personal life, but I have this little feeling it is not very interesting to anyone anymore now that...

2. I have gotten engaged. My personal life now consists of cramming in calls to caterers, wedding halls, florists, and so on during my breaks. While I am having a great time with it, and I find the wedding business to be fascinating, yet exploitative (and the family drama it brings to the surface to also be fascinating, yet horrifying), I have noticed the glazed look on people's faces when I answer their questions about how planning is going. I have realized they are asking to be polite and don't actually care what the cost of a good smorg is with and without a sushi station, or what my colors are, or whether I have a floral chuppah or a tallit on four poles. That's fine, I'm pretty sure I didn't care about most of the details when most of my friends got married in the past (not including you, Groomzilla - you know who you are - it was fun talking to you about yours and I now realize very helpful), and probably won't in the future.

Thus the lack of blogging. I'm afraid I won't be able to continue, either, since I'm not making a bridal blog - barf barf barf - and I can't talk shit about my supervisors, colleagues, or defendants. So I guess this is goodbye. Or maybe au revoir? Will I be able to stay away? Stay tuned.
