I had something very deep & thoughtful started but then I got all headachy and grouchy, which kind of negates the depth & thoughtfulness I was trying to convey.
So I'm going the lazy way and directing your attention to a post of My Favorite Things over at the other blog. Because it only got 3 comments the first time around and I think it deserves better than that. You don't have to agree, but it's all you're getting from this one today.
Thanks for your understanding, or for your very sincere faking of understanding.
