Pardon My Absence...

Tonight my wife told me, if not in these exact words in others very similar, that I was a "sorry-ass blogger" these days. Alas, 'tis true. Life has been very busy this last week or so, but with nothing very noteworthy. Allow me to demonstrate:

So I went to the dentist last Tuesday and my teeth were fine. However, I should have my last wisdom tooth removed soon. We've been running experiments, but we've been having lots of no-shows lately, so I'm having to recruit people of the street. I studied a lot for a test this-

Shall I go on? No, I'll spare you...

Nonetheless these things and many others like it have kept me fairly busy. There are a few somewhat-interesting things of note:

1. I've applied for my very first passport this week. Since our overseas plans are now on the backburner, we're hoping for three weeks in Africa in June (OK, THAT is REALLY exciting, but there's nothing more to say. Many plans must follow...)
2. V for Vendetta is a really fun movie.
3. Most fun lately- this evening, actually- is that I have now begun to join Katie in going to the Bantu women's apartments to help tutor. I worked with the kids and it was...marvelous. I was in Heaven. Seriously. Whatever it is inside me that jumps for joy about African topics or African people was doing cartwheels tonight. For me, it was just affirmation that, for whatever greater reason or purpose, our futures are tied to the African people. And that is an exhilarating realization.

I'll post more soon. Really.

Chris, I just counted the number of posts you made since March 1, the number Katie made, and the number I made. I believe you are no more of a sorry excuse then the rest of us.
