An anonymous reader recently mailed my the following comment: What’s up with your lack of updates?
I apologize. First, though, I have to say, it’s flattering to know that somebody actually reads my incessant ramblings, much less is concerned that I haven’t written anything new in a while.
Okay. It’s been a busy time for me, which is unusual. I’ll try to sum up. First, there was my friend Nigam’s wedding, which necessitated such unusual outings like a trip to go buy a suit which I’m probably never going to wear again.
Also, I’ve sort of been in feverish contact with a friend in Australia over a topic that you need not worry about — so a lot of writing is being chewed up by that. Long emails, etc. Along with this, I came down with a two-week cold a little while ago, as well as having a wisdom tooth develop an abscess and have to be removed (by the way, for those of you who hate dentists — and I’m at the top of that list — getting a tooth pulled is really nothing, as long as they pump you up full of enough novocaine — although, here’s a hint, try never to look at the damn novocaine needle).
There’s been other stuff going on but it’s all sort of minor stuff, but it has conspired to keep me from attending to my blog. So I’m sorry about that. Believe me, my webalizer has shown me the dearth in traffic since I stopped posting regularly (and usually I have a lot of fun watching that thing go up, not down).
So…I’ll try to get back into the rhythm of posting here. Let me address a few things quickly…
– Nigam’s wedding (the Indian ceremony), went off without a hitch, including the Raas–Grba the night before (after which I received many slaps on the back from Indians for being the only outsider there to make it all the way through the simulated stick/sword-dance). It was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, the photos I took with my iPhone are gone — they disappeared when I tried to update to the 1.1.1 firmware and my iPhone crashed and needed a full restore. I’ve had no luck trying to get in touch with the Maid of Honor to see if she has pictures, and Nigam is still on his honeymoon.
– Oh, my God, is it a great thing to be a New England sports fan right now.
– I found a good online place to buy chocolate-covered espresso beans (they ARE good, if you’ve never had them, and yeah, they do jazz you up nicely) — http://www.nutsonline.com/.
– Really, there’s not much else going on.
So that’s about it, folks. I’ll just try to post more regularly now.
