Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been really around in the last couple of days. Some of you may have also noticed that I may have seemed slightly behind, as if there was something else going on with me right now.

I’m in Waikiki right now, and you’re not.
PS: Because my wife got her paper accepted at the right engineering conference, that’s why. Odd how us knuckle-dragging, reactionary Neanderthal types always seem to marry about three standard deviations above our station.
PPS: Because I just got out of the shower when the picture got taken, that’s why. I’ve been up since 4 AM.
