I occasionally get comments about the “and believe me I am still alive” subhead on the blog and how “defensive you have to be to have that on your blog”. Er, mostly it’s a joking reference to the Jonathan Coulton song. (Lyrics here.) And it’s a way of metaphorically rolling my eyes at all the people who (still) say I’ll be dead at age 30 or 40.
(Never mind that I just turned 50.)
It also expresses that despite being very fat, I’m still alive.
It also expresses that I may not be always posting, but yeah, still alive.
