Not fully back yet

Violating my own guideline about not feeling the need to explain posting absences…

I’ve been out of town for the last two weeks (May 24-June 8, to be specific), cruising from Vancouver to Seward and back on the MS Zaandam, one of those “dam ships.” I’ll probably post about it later, maybe, if other pre-ALA deadlines don’t preclude it; for now, let’s just say that Holland America largely redeemed itself in our eyes. (This is a good thing.)

Other pre-ALA deadlines? A brief talk at an ALA program (a rare occasion for me, and it’s not a LITA program); that deserves a post and I need to write some notes for the talk. Also a column–technically not due until July 11, but that doesn’t leave much time post-ALA. And C&I (for which I already have 2/3 of a short issue), unless I postpone the July issue…

Anyway, I’m back…but I’m not quite. Just marking all outstanding blog posts on the absurd number of blogs I follow would be self-destructive, but plowing through 1,800+ posts wasn’t easy, even if I only really needed to read about 10% of them–and save maybe 60 for later consideration and use. Or, for three specific and related posts, a possible response…

One of those posts was from a first-rate liblogger who noted that they’re sort of blogged out at the moment. I commented that they weren’t alone. Maybe it’s early summer (yesterday was uncommonly warm for Mountain View, and of course we don’t have A/C here in paradise). Maybe it’s post-vacation letdown. I don’t think I’ve done any particularly topical posts, other than book-related posts, for a while now. That should change. Some day soon…

Enough. Time to get back on the treadmill (literally, followed by figuratively).
