The three posts that appear directly below this one were all written yesterday and saved in draft form, which is why they're appearing at all.
Due to a sudden and dramatic shift in my personal circumstances, I am putting this blog on an indefinite hiatus. I genuinely don't know when I'll be able to return. If it's sooner, then so much the better; if it's later, then we'll meet again one day.
Farewell for now.
UPDATE 8-28-07: Thanks to everyone who has either commented or e-mailed with well-wishes; as ever, it means a great deal to me. While all this falls into the general category of "Stuff I won't blog about except to mention in such vague terms that nobody but me will ever know what I'm really talking about here", I can at least report that today things are better, and that my return will, in all likelihood, be in fact sooner rather than later.
However, it won't be for a few days still, because I'm still too raw and too tired to write coherent postings about anything interesting. That being the case, I'm going to make this an "official" hiatus of definite length: unless something else happens, I'll return to active blogging next Tuesday, the day after Labor Day.
Oh, and Jen: are we having a Christmas party? I think that would be great for all us denizens of the Buffalo Prefecture of Blogistan. We should discuss this.
See you all in September.
