A light appears at the end of the tunnel!

Ok, so the thing that’s kept me crazy busy over the last two weeks is starting to wind down and I’m at least occasionally finding my head above water.  Now to figure out how to re-start in mid stream…

Hit the jump, and let’s look at what’s coming up over the next few weeks!

An unexpected hiatus

After last week’s optimistic post, well, Life happened.  (Literally within a couple of hours of posting.)  Something has come up which is eating almost all my physical, emotional, and mental energy.

Not to worry it’s none of what you’re thinking!  We’re healthy, happy, married (and planning on staying that way), employed, have a roof, aren’t on the lam from the law, etc…  It’s just a thing that has to be done and that’s all I really want to say.

The upshot is, it’ll be another week, possibly two, before I can even begin to contemplate getting caught up and collecting myself enough to write coherently.  (And then try to figure out how to salvage the trainwreck.)   I may try writing some short blurbs, but I make no guarantees.

Mostly about the weekend, but also about anime.

Wow – the 4th of July holiday has really messed up my writing schedule.  My lovely wife took most of Monday off, which made it essentially a four-day weekend.  We got a ton of much-needed chores done (yay, new bookshelves in the bedroom!) but we also had fun and ate well (YAY! for having a new grill!!).  The best part was the strawberries…  Fresh from a local farm, we served them over homemade cheesecake and made strawberry ice cream.

Nothing matters but the weekend 
From a Tuesday point of view…

 

But I digress…   We’re caught up on premiers and I plan on getting out my first overview post today or tomorrow.  The Atom finale is this weekend, so Mon or Tues I’ll get the final post for Spring 2017 up which will also catch up other ongoing shows.  I’ll also be talking about the special ep of Demi-Chan which aired over the last weekend.  (If you haven’t seen it, Crunchy has it, go watch it!  It’s very good.)  The season wrap-up post should follow shortly thereafter.

Other digressions, and also some stuff about anime, after the jump.

Rebuilding…

Accidentally deleted my customizations yesterday, and didn’t realize it until this morning…  When I was restoring them I took the opportunity to fiddle a bit with the look.  (Specifically, I’d never changed from the default font and hadn’t really realized how awful it looked.)  I still have to repair some bits (like the links), but the sidebars are back.

What do you think?

Anyhow, thanks to the helpful Happiness Engineers at WordPress I also now know how to preview new themes without deleting my existing one.   Hopefully in my abundant spare time, I’ll get a chance to faff around with some new themes and develop a better look…  I picked this theme in kind of a hurry and I’ve never really been actually happy with it.

Speaking of abundant spare time, time to stop fiddling here…  There will be a lack of happiness in the domestic section of the Lounge if I don’t get the kitchen cleaned up and the potato salad for tonight’s dinner started.

Under Construction!

Getting out the toolbox, getting down to work.

Under construction pages have been around pretty much since the ‘net became widely available twenty years ago…  Still, they serve a useful purpose since you have to start somewhere.

Still, I need some starting content to see how the various bits and pieces work…  so I’ll just stick with tradition.
