Calm Before

Apologies if things go a bit quiet here, and if when I do post it's a little boring. The thing is, often my output on this blog is the direct consequence of idleness, and I'm not very idle of late. Partly that's because I've got stuff to do -- I want to take the A+ exam at the end of August or so, and I still have a lot of information to pack into my brain in preparation for that; I have a shiteload of video to edit, and just getting it imported and reviewed is going to take two or three weeks; and I've got packing to do in between that. And then I've got work, my usual daily activities, friends to pester into spending quality time, and I have to work in a sufficient amount of introversion-maintenance time, too. The days are just packed, I tell you.

But more than that, I'm just in a strange headspace. I've got barely more than ten weeks to go before the Really Important Thing happens. And while that deadline doesn't pose any particular problems for me, it's kind of like the three days right before a major academic paper is due -- right now, every distraction is extra-compelling. I have so much to fit into a finite time that doing nothing is no longer boring -- it's kind of a relief, actually.

So my not-doing-anything time is not only reduced, it's also no longer idle time. and that means my blogging output is dropping off for a while. But don't give up on me yet. I have a feeling that before too long -- especially once I start getting some fresh material -- it'll pick up again.

In the meantime, get a load of this broad's amazing hairdo:

I want one

PS: Several people have called me out for being coy about what the Really Important Thing is. I know that I haven't actually said it out loud (so to speak) on the blog, mostly because at this point, damn near everyone already knows what it is. Or maybe it just seems that way -- I don't really know how many people are reading, so my assumption that you collectively constitute eight or ten personal friends and a hundred daily random perverts looking for "naked old man" pictures could well be incorrect.

And the other thing is, I think I'm still afraid of jinxing it. The magic is fragile. Naming it might destroy it.

So, what I'm asking is, when -- if ever - should I announce?
