Sorry about the delay. . .

Sheesh! I've been doing the work of 3 people spread over 2 different shifts for about a month now Confused. Thankfully, I think the worst of it is past and I can get back to my normal night shift and have some time to throw down some tasty Longbox Junk starting back up next week. Sorry about the delay!

Apologies to the readers of this blog for the entries getting a bit sparse during the summer months.   I manage a hotel in Utah that sits right at the best spot to call it a night between the West Coast and Yellowstone. . .so from June to September it's a bit of a madhouse until school is back in.

Having a full house every night is great for business, but not so great for readin' and reviewin' comic books.  Even as the night manager on the graveyard shift, there's a steady stream of people and an unrelenting amount of phone calls in the strange hours of the morning that even after all these years (15 years in the hotel biz) I find it hard to believe.

Even as I write this short entry, I've taken 4 phone calls and had 3 guests at my desk needing this or that over the past 30 minutes.  It's 1:30 a.m.

Summer, that is. 

Still not QUITE done with, but this is the first night in almost 3 months my hotel hasn't been completely sold out.  Looking at my paperwork tonight, I see a severely sharp decline in reservations starting in about a week when even late-starting schools are back in session.  I think everyone on staff here will be glad for the break (until they start whining about how bored they are in about a month or so).  I know I'LL be glad to get back to readin' and reviewin' some Longbox Junk!

I've gotten some messages asking me why the entries in this blog are becoming more infrequent.

My apologies, and a bit of explanation. . .

I'm a night manager at a hotel and I do these during my down time at work.  As the summer season goes into full swing, I have less of that down time.  When school gets back in, you'll see them going back up in frequency again.
