So I haven't updated since ... uh ... June. To my credit, that's the end of June, not the beginning. But I'll be back. For reals this time. And this blog isn't the only thing I've neglected over the last few months. Here's a complete list:

-the dishes
-regular car maintenance
-clothes shopping
-shoe shopping
-food shopping
-starting a sensible retirement savings plan
-fortifying my residence against future cockroach attacks
-responding to emails (I swear, 73-year-old guy who emailed me like two months ago, that I WILL write back to you!)

I'm sure there are other things, but I can't think of them right now. Anyway, I'm back. I think.
