This is my apology post. I really enjoy blogging but I know the quality of my posts has suffered in the past six months or so, and though I can offer a veritable cornucopia of theories, I can't quite put my finger on the reason. I do know that regular posting creates a sort of receptive mindset; like every other muscle bloggimus maximus needs exercise to perform at its peak, but lately it's been parked on the sofa, eating bonbons and watching Oprah. Even the connecting tissue, commentor magnus, has been skipping its regular workouts. So bear with me as there are usually several pictures or links to post each week, whether I'm feeling like writing or not. During this intermission I give you the above video. If you like that one there's more here.
