I'm feeling compelled to offer up mea culpas for lazy blogging. I love to read memes (being unashamedly nosy) and am really touched when someone honours me with an award. The popular ones right now are the Excellent Blog award (thanks, Ian, for the most recent) and the You Make My Day award (and thank you, Tara, for the same). I have even composed posts in my head to do the same for the bloggers whose every word I hang on, but I have no follow-through. I think I've become a Jaded Old Blogger. I wonder if that includes a pension?
