(With apologies to Granny Weatherwax)
In case you haven't noticed I haven't posted much - okay, at all - for a couple months. I've been dealing with some personal issues including a minor outbreak of depression and I've just had a hard time motivating myself. I even passed on commenting on the actual Hugo Awards this year.
Part of it has been being totally swamped at work, part has been family health issues and part has just been a general sense of malaise with the world. There's a cartoon that periodically pops up on Facebook (and of course I now can't find a copy) where a woman is speaking to a man and says, "My desire to stay informed about the world is conflicting with my desire to stay sane." That about sums up how I've been feeling about current events lately.
Fortunately I have lots of good friends who are willing to be there for me when I am down and I am finally working my way out of the black pit of despair.
I think I'm mostly over it now and will start posting more geeky goodness in the near future.
