Waiting For Frodo updated.

JOURNALS: Josh writes a letter to his younger self. Andrea writes about a typical morning. Kate commutes. Annie spins.

Short blather today since I have to finish packing.

It looks like I'll be offline most of the time we're out of town, so there may not be many Blatherings over the next few weeks. I may ask someone to continue to link up Waiting For Frodo strips while I'm away since I have a few already lined up to go (so do check that page from time to time), but we'll see.

Everyone seems to be okay with the new Blatherchat discussion forum, so I'll be making the full switch-over once I get back. If you haven't already, do give it a try. You can edit/delete your own messages, hotlink URLs and use text styles, and also customize your own profile so people can check out your Web site if they're curious. Or you can stay a relatively anonymous user, if that's what you'd prefer.

This Thursday will mark the one-year anniversary of when I sold Inkspot. Wow, can't believe it's been a YEAR already. I have mixed feelings...overall, feeling somewhat down because of that and the fact that I got a phonecall yesterday from the tax lawyer I recently hired. It turns out there may be tax problems resulting from the sale...problems which I had been repeatedly reassured would be taken care of at the time. Sigh. Reminder to self: never EVER sell a company/Web site again!

Anyway, all the more reason I'm glad we're going away for a little while. I'm taking a pile of good books, some chocolate, Andrea's Georgia peach tea.

And I promise to be in a better mood next time I Blather.
