Sorry it's been quiet over here for a while--I don't know if I just got wildly off my sleep cycle or what, but I've felt like a zombie the last few days, and my eyes have been killing me since Saturday night (dry, itchy, burning a little). After getting a decent night's sleep they're a lot better today, but still. I'm buried under a couple of things that have to get done at the moment, and in addition to that, both Sam and Shelby have developed some kind of canine stomach complaint where they frisk about for a couple of hours, unleash epic amounts of... blarg on the carpet, and then go right back to what they were doing. Also, my grandmother is still suffering with the shingles. So... many regular activities have been suspended chez moi for a little while. Sorry about that.
