I totally stole the title of this post from a posting by my friend and mentor, Mark Brown. His reasons for not blogging much in November are excellent. He sat for his qualifying exams for his P. H. D. (and PASSED!!!) , and he wrote a draft of a freakin' novel--- 50,133 words (apparently relying upon EM Forster's definition of how wordy a thing has to be to be a "novel" and not some other freaky (twice I use this work now) literary thing). Good reasons for laying off the blog thing, neh?
Me? I got no such good excuses. I'm just lame.
So... there you have it. Lameness vs. productivity and intellectual rigor.
On the bright side... I didn't kill any of my children this month (nor last), and I got the tree up on Dec 1 (a record at our house).
