I know -- this blog has seemed a bit off recently. I don't seem to be able to say anything interesting about anything significant, and the posts I do put up don't seem to have much of point. Not to make excuses, but I've been fighting some sort of cold or flu literally all month, and keeping up with my blogly duties has seemed like a struggle. I hope things will be back to normal when I feel better.
