Just passing through, I wanted to thank everyone who’s left comments recently. Since I only access this blog thing in internet cafes, and since I’ve been spending far too much time and money in internet cafes lately, my responses to these comments are both tardy and, worse, far too abrupt and unconsidered. If I’ve left your comment unattended, or responded with what seems like brusque indifference, I apologise. I’d like to respond at inordinate length and with inordinate care – but I’m a bit pressed for time. So I just wanted to say how lovely it is to get responses to the babble I post here. Thanks for stopping by.
