I forgot to mention that I was slupping off to New Zealand. Well, I was. And now I'm here, slupped off. The internet costs $37.50 per minute, plus my firstborn, so I'll withhold details, except to say that I'm in Dunedin, it's cold (HURRAY!), and yesterday I bumped into some seals scratching their whiskers on the beach. Photos will ensue, but prolly not til next weekend, when I'll be back in the land of the world wide webble.
