Paraskevidekatriaphobia and Lack of Writing

I will now proceed to submit a reason, in a way of an apology, for the lack of writing referred to in the title of this post.

Real Life has taken over cyber-life in my recent life. Unfortunately, Recent Real Life also involved an awful lot of Death. However, and despite aforementioned title, Recent Real Life and associated Death entailed no Fridays and no number thirteens.

There is a connection here though. I came across “paraskevidekatriaphobia” as a side effect of wearing a Bear, Beets and Battleship t-shirt a few minutes ago, and the absurdity of the word seemed a good fit for the absurdity of Recent Real Life. It was the link I’d been hoping for, making it relevant to write about Death on Lexiphania, since Death is what’s happening now, and not blogging it – ignoring it – somehow feels more wrong than blogging it.

Also, as per the proverbial wake-up call and somewhat reassuringly, I got an urge to get things done now. Fittingly, the Lexiphania CNO* pointed me earlier to the Cult of Done Manifesto, which in turn, I’d like to point y’all to now. Check it out. It’s brilliant. Ok. Done!
