As you may have read in the last coupla days, I'm taking next week off, to catch up on a few things around the house and prepare the garden. I need a breather. I know you HBOers don't like these occasional weekly breaks, but I need them to keep the creative juices flowing. On the other hand, I miss this forum when I'm out of circulation (at least for a coupla days). In the interim, I need to figure out how to reconfigure things here to free up another hour during my work day. I've been considering shedding the Best of the Inland Northwest because it eats up so much time in the middle of the day and deprives me from getting away from the desk. That, or Quick Fix 6. Any thoughts? Behave yourselves while I'm away. I'll post the usual stuff this weekend. But you'll have to make do with the Wild Cards next week. BTW, thanks for all the laughs and thought-provoking posts that you make here. I still don't know what HBO will be like when it grows up. Then, mebbe that's part of what makes the blogosphere special.
