With the onset of sabbatiquol looming, I’m slipping faster into panic as I try to wrap my head around 40+ weeks of uninterrupted research and writing time. I hope someone calls a meeting soon so I have something to structure my schedule.
On the other hand, that means at least 40 weeks worth of diligent web surfing to provide you with a wondrous gaggle of quick hits and varia!

Sometimes everything is just too much effort.
