Whew! Back in the office, where I returned to the sound of 421 queries simultaneously shouting “Hi! Hi! Where have you been?!” from my Inbox. Needless to say, query response time is going to be delayed for a while. Not least of which due to the monumental jet lag that led me to arrive at the office at 6:15 this morning since, hey, I was wide awake anyway!
Also, while away I entered the ranks of those who have read Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom. Loved it. Seriously. That guy really knows human beings. Frankly I’m surprised he can walk down the street with that much awareness of what makes every single person around him tick. It’s no wonder he loves bird watching.
But more on that when my brain knows what time it is.
Lastly, a major THANK YOU to the incredible lineup of guest posters for their amazing series of posts. I don’t know that this blog has had a better week in its history. Thank you thank you.
