Apologies for the dearth in posting these past few days. Truth is, I’ve been rather busy with a sudden, unexpected and thoroughly time-and-energy-consuming project (of a nature that I am not entirely free to divulge) that I’ve imposed on myself at no more than a mere whim. I can say that I’m just over halfway done with it at the moment, and that normal blogging should return within the next few days.
Well, it’s so fun when bigots decide to stop pretending to be tolerant and loving and all that.
