Almost two months with only two blogposts to show for these hot summer months? And with two years now and 150 or so posts this far!!!???!!! (What the hell did I write about in allthoseposts?) Guess when I’m working on something substantive I have less time and energy to bullshit blog. I must be such a disappointment to my one “follower” and all the Taiwanese porn spammers who make it past the CAPTCHA screening.
