It is a blog cliché to apologize for not blogging one's blog enough. But I'm not a cliché-maker, so I'm not sorry. In fact, I am the opposite of sorry-- I'm indignant. Here I am, providing day after day of constant excellence while getting ripped off by APOD, Slate, and Zosia, and I am supposed to apologize for being so awesome that people would miss my presence while I tend to my earthly responsibilities? I think not.
I'm not totally disappearing from The Topography (yes, that's what I'm calling it now apparently), I'm just buried in work for the next fortnight, so lower your expectations yet further.
