Recent near-absence
Posted by Teresa at 08:19 AM *

Sorry about that. Mostly I’ve been professionally busy, plus I’ve had a few houseguests, and a few health problems, and a few rounds of reconstructing the computer setup. You know how that goes.

Theresa,

Is the ratio of a near-absence to a near-presence closer to the ratio between a near miss and a near hit, or to the ratio between partly sunny and partly cloudy?

Semi-welcome semi-back.

Near-absence makes the heart grow near-fonder.

Near-absence ≠ far-presence?

I was just going to say welcome back and hope you are feeling better, but now that I've seen Jonathan's post, I must crawl away and think of something witty. ;)

Perhaps near-witty would do, under the circumstances?

May the health problems all wind up with a far absence, is all I can think of to say.

Graydon: I'm usually halfway there myself.

Great seeing you yester, TNH.

Curse you, Graydon, for coming up with the quick response. But I have a good excuse for being scatterbrained today. Really. :)

I hope the health problems are, or will soon be, only a memory. Ditto the computer reconstruction (but not the houseguests).

Have you been to see any movies lately?

Just glad to see you back. It's a brain thing.

I need a steady diet of interesting pieces (or particles) and alternative sources don't cut it.
