Blog on the Run: Reloaded

Can’t slow down …

Filed under: Housekeeping — Lex @ 11:16 pm

… so I gotta stop, temporarily.

(And, no, this is not a publicity stunt. Or, if so, it’s a damned stupid one. It took me until November to get back to the readership level I enjoyed the last time I took a sabbatical.)

I have a number of projects on my plate that have been hanging fire way too long, so, with the exception of a short upcoming post featuring some of Hooper’s recent artwork (which I’ve scanned but must re-size before posting), I’m going to take a break of indeterminate length. That post will be clocked behind this one, so no one will wonder where I went.

Some of my extracurricular activity will be visible. For one thing, cut-and-paste by cut-and-paste, I’m going to knock down the backlog of unposted archives here. (UPDATE: I might re-format some, but any substantive changes will be clearly labeled as updates, like this one.)

But most of it will be off-grid. For one thing, I want to re-read the whole Harry Potter series before the last book comes out July 21, and if I started right this second, given everything else going on, I still might not finish. Got some other, personal, stuff to deal with too. (Nothing acutely life-threatening, nor even health-related, so neither despair nor rejoice.) But despite 3 1/2 decades of trying to prove otherwise, there really are only 24 hours in a day.

Like the blog says, reality will not ignore you. Time to heed my own warning.

I’ll jack the shotgun to give you some warning before I start shooting again. ‘Til then, peace.

(FINAL UPDATE: While I’m gone, comments are disabled, mainly as an anti-spam measure. You can e-mail me if you feel the need.)


  1. Don’t stop commenting.

    See you around.
