Regular readers (hi, Mom!) will notice the unusually long absence between entries. Sean and I have been fighting a nasty cold for the past week. I got sick first, and now it’s Sean’s turn. Between the two of us sneezing and wheezing and moping, we’ve been in no condition for movie theaters, concert halls, or anything else fun, which means that even now that I kinda sorta feel like I could form coherent sentences, I don’t have anything to write about. I think the worst is over now, though, so I’m hoping to get back to my blog—or at least out of our germy apartment—this weekend.
