2011-09-20/25 Weekly LOVIEE

My apologies to everyone who waited and waited and gave up looking for the weekly LOVIEEs the past two weeks. Real life kind of took over and left me with no time for blogging. It did not affect just this blog; I had intended to make more substantial posts to my new personal site Spectacular Shawn, as well as Rant Roulette which has been neglected for well over a month.

Needless to say, this also means I’ve been way too busy to consider seriously planning any kind of anniversary gathering. If anyone has ideas, please do post them to the forums. I’m considering something very informal perhaps alongside one of October’s events, perhaps just a semi-organized meeting of the regular readers.

I may be adding to this if I find out about something else. This was, I will admit, kind of done in a rush. Regular readers know I set a high standard for this site, and I hope I have not fallen too far short of that.
