I guess it’s about time I woke this blog up. It’s been quite a while since I last posted something— almost exactly two years, actually. Obviously, a lot has happened since I’ve last blogged:

  • the economy tanked big time
  • GM declared bankruptcy
  • Chrysler declared bankruptcy
  • my company got bought
  • I didn’t receive any of the $1 trillion bailout money
  • I wasn’t selected to run GM
  • Detroit has been overrun by zombies

Okay, maybe the last item is a premature, post-bankruptcy, apocalyptic scenario (but which could still happen), however, the rest are definitely cranky-inducing events. Luckily, I few things did go my way:

  • my son was born (4 months ago)
  • I bought a new car (1 year ago)
  • I kept my job
  • we discovered a huge black monolith orbiting Jupiter (2010)

All of these are just part of the trials of working in the auto industry in Detroit. If it’s not making me cry, it’s making me crazy. So why don’t I leave it? Because I love the auto industry.

And that’s why I’m writing again. I can’t guarantee that I won’t go another two years for my next entry, but I’m going to try really hard to post regularly.
