I keep meaning to update this blog, and then keep not doing it because the time I usually spend doing it I've been spending walking a few blocks in order to shed some particularly ugly pounds. The good news is that five of those pounds have come off. The bad news is that all of the good ideas I usually have for blogging have been displaced by thoughts of putting one foot in front of the other. And then the Voices In My Head start yammering, and when I come back home I'm writing scripts for the strip instead of insightful, wry-and-dry commentary for this page. I like it when the bad news is actually just another flavor of good news.
