If you've been paying any attention you've noticed that I've missed the last couple days. Here is my excuse: I am on vacation. Not from this site, but from being at work, and being at home, and having normal days. Right now I'm sitting in a living room in a house in Los Angeles, hoping desperately that I am not making too many typos, since typos are the sort of thing I'm liable to make after being awake for 23 hours. Anyway, what I mean to convey here is that the next week or so might see some unreliable updating on account of my current situation. For right now though, here's a picture I drew on the paper tablecloth of a restaurant in which I ate after arriving here on the west coast.
