When last we left our heroine, she was full of energy and enthusiasm, planning to get back into the habit of writing with the goal of eventually launching the TWO subject-specific blogs she's had percolating for ages now.
Then came the flu. Followed by a cold, and conjunctivitis. And if today's nasal extravaganza is the beginning of something new, instead of the last throes of the previous bug, then so help me God, I cannot be held responsible for my actions if I find the plague vector. (I blame the Bryn Mawr girls. I know they were the source of the cold&pinkeye.) I would say I can't even remember the last day I truly felt well, except that I know it was the Sunday of Arisia, so actually I can remember it with a fair amount of detail.
So let's try this again. And since, not entirely coincidentally, this is the first day of Lent, I am going to try to keep myself motivated by designating this as my Lenten observation. Yes, it counts if you take something on instead of giving something up. It's mostly about making something a regular reminder that this is a season of reflection and penitence. I'm focusing on reflection, by writing about myself for others. I'm not good at telling people about myself. When the meme went around Facebook for telling people X things they should know about you, I honestly couldn't guess what everyone would already know and what would be new and interesting. So I would appreciate feedback, if you think of it, on whether what I come up with is something you knew or something new, and whether it's interesting in either case.
And hey, if anybody out there isn't already on my friends-list, and you want to see this stuff, drop me a comment. Most of my journal has been friends-only for years. Much of it is custom-filtered beyond that. I like to know who I'm talking to.
