So - you might well wonder - what's going on with the Tat?
Well, for starters, there's all the writing I've been doing over at SL Insider. Not always very successfully, but I'm working on improving. Particularly interviewing - that's a whole lot harder than it looks. Asking a whole bunch of questions that other people thought up, and then slapping the log down isn't exactly the acme of style. Still ... getting better. Maybe in a couple hundred years or so, I'll graduate to adequate.
There's also the New World Numbers monthly column at New World Notes. They're fun to do, particularly because the article I end up with is never the one I actually sat down to write. I realise and connect a lot of stuff along the way, and after a few drafts, it's really quite a different journey to the one I'd anticipated. And I always thought poking around among piles of numbers was a bit dull. Go figure.
I'm doing some other work - stuff I'm not going to talk about. Confidentiality and all that. No, it's nothing exciting or mysterious. If only it involved dinner with Wil Wheaton or something. Yeah, if only. I'd settle for Judith Lucy, though. I'm just saying.
Add to that a dose of self-discovery. Self-discovery sucks, incidentally. You almost never find out anything nice. Just a list of things that need to be done or fixed. This post is one of those. Oh, the cartoon above? Nothing to do with that self-discovery stuff.
Also a lot of overall life-changes. Soon as I figure out what those even are, I'll say something. Unless it violates someone's privacy, in which case I won't.
Yeah, so there. We're all pretty much done here today. Hope you and yours are well.
