Reverend DiGangi

I've been in Baltimore all weekend, performing my first wedding as a reverend in the Universal Life Church. You too can get ordained on the internet, it takes about three minutes' time.

As such, I'm a little behind, and probably won't get a new piece up on TJ until Tuesday. I know you'll all be holding your breath.

In the meantime, you can hit Mike Boyle's blog bohobait for some background behind his recent TJ ghost story, "Room 829", which I think is one of his more entertaining stories. It's a piece that's surprisingly grown up considering how not grown-up it is. A good way to get October started. I know he may feel strange to always have a home at Thieves Jargon, but I'm always pleased when my favorite writers come back to the Jargon with new submissions, and it's not like we're going to be around for much longer, so we might as well have fun while we're still here.

Thieves Jargon isn't going to be around much longer? Did I miss something? I'm new to this blog, but not to TJ. I read it almost every day.

So will the site stay up, or will you pull it down eventually?

I'm paying the hosting two years at a time. Let's talk again in about six months.

Matt DiGangi said...

I see that as a likelihood.

More importantly, do you know that whenever I have a pause in thinking, an inability to come up with the actual thing I am trying to think of, I always think, "Thieves Jargon." No matter what it is or how unrelated the Jargon is.

Don't quit.
