I have to apologize: life is pretty good. Which is odd, I know, but I suspect that tragedy makes for much more interesting reading, I certainly feel more passionate when I’m ranting. Although I suppose that doesn’t make the reading any more enjoyable. So yeah, life is good. I’m getting stuff done: It doesn’t look [...]
I think an update is in order. First, because I’m looking for an excuse to tell you that I lost 10 pounds. Second, because I’m also looking for an excuse to tell you what the therapist (under whose influence I lost said poundage) said to me this week:
