I've been planning to do this all week, but never got around to it until it was too late:
HAPPY END OF NOVEMBER!!!
Yes, yes, I have been away. My posting is controlled by a carefully attuned "guilt thermostat", or guiltmostat, if you will. At this point, my guilt-level is too high to post but too low to overcome the fact that it is too high to post. Actually, having posted this, I may have just gone over that limit, but I don't know if I'll be able to keep it up.
On the other hand, if my guiltmostat drops quickly enough, it may go below the "too-high-to-post" threshold, in which case I'd be positively logorrheic. You like that image, right? Logorrea, right?
Of course, I am playing with time here. But then, I am Mandos.
