As you may have noticed, these been a marked decrease in posting around here this last few days.
As in none.
Sorry about that.
Been terribly busy. Had a kid type crisis to deal with. Late night Emergency Room visit and follow up specialist appointments yesterday for what we thought might be an eye related injury - nothing to worry about, as it turns out. No physical injury despite getting elbowed in the eye, Monday in gym class. His eyes are perfect (better actually, at 20/15) but he suffered an episode of visual disruption. The episode, as it turns out, probably indicates the onset of visual affect migraines (which I guess is better than the detached retina I was worried about). He's the right age for it, and both his mother and I suffer from them (though I don't get visual effects other than light sensitivity). I can't tell you how much this thrills us.
And then last night I was at the Alaska Natural History Museum until late, for my wife's company's annual Christmas party. Awesome food, fancy clothes, live music, great company - forgive me if I'd rather do that than sit in front of the computer. Not that I don't love each and every one of you in your own special way, but seriously folks the dessert bar alone (chocolate dipped strawberries and cheesecake) could have made me give up writing forever and become a professional glutton. Afterward we had a 70 miles drive home in ice fog and didn't get in until midnight - so, you know, no blogging.
Anyway, we will now resume our regularly scheduled broadcast.
Later this evening.
Unless something comes up.
Not that that ever happens.
