A Blog in Need of Renaming

The time has come to strip this blog of its obnoxious (and misleading title). Although my “full retirement” in reality lasted a mere five months, now that I’ll be toiling every day from 8am to 6pm on a new project in Cambridge, I suppose I have to stop living a lie… So what to call this blog of miscellany and navel gazing?

I’m excited for my return to the rank-and-file of working men. And fret not about the writing. Three agents have my novel right now, and the new project is 35,000 words and counting (for you non-writers out there, that’s approx. 40% complete).

I welcome any and all suggestions for a new title. Winner gets a copy of my unpublished manuscript... :)

YAY to 3 agents! (and great progress on the new project.) Hope you enjoy the new job, Jason. As for a new title. Hmm. I do like just "Chez Shaffner." Go for the jugular with something like "Yale pricks are scum." Or take an alpha stance with something like "My blog is bigger than your blog."

Happy 30th Birthday!!!!!

In light of both your return to the drudgery of the working world, and your officially lost youth I propose the following suggestions for the new blog name:
