Hi, everyone!

I had such a damn good post planned for today. Long story short, after a few days of neither eating nor sleeping I couldn't muster the energy. Oh, don't worry. I didn't sleep instead of writing. I just stayed up preparing for (another godforsaken) conference and trying mightily to decide two key questions:

1. Should my conference presentation be given in the voice of a 1930s newsreel narrator (fast talkin', high trousers) or a Victorian era carny barker?

2. Is there any conceivable reason for me to continue getting out of bed in the morning?

(Trick question. I'm rarely in a bed.)

Anyway, I'll try to get this oversold post written at some point today, hot and ready to underwhelm your elevated expectations.
