Scuttle mode

June 23, 2011

Around the solstice I switch to scuttle mode. No, I don’t mean I’m a ship that’s deliberately sinking (or do I? Discuss.) but that the darkth and the coldth and the dampth means I hide in bed, I scuttle around in an icy house, I scuttle to work, I scuttle home, I huddle, I retreat. It’s terribly dull. I’m sure there are Things happening out there in the rest of the world. I’m sure there are People do do Things with. But I default to scuttle. And like many scuttling things (baby turtles, cockroaches) I’m not very good at setting myself aright.

So that is why, complaining types, there have been few posts. I’ve been too busy scuttling away to do anything interesting. But soon the days will embiggen and things will improve. Meanwhile, go find yourself a nice cheery blog written by someone who lives in the northen hemisphere.


Been busy

Sunshine and crunchy autumn leaves are such time-wasters.

Clear skies bring frosty mornings, sunny days, and glowing Squids.
