Yes, I abandoned you all for three nights with the Wheel of Time. Can you ever forgive me?
For a while, there, it looked like all was for naught, too. I didn't think I'd finish last night. But the time changed, giving that magical extra hour, and so we made it from page just-shy-of-500 to page 843 at just about 6 in the ay-em.
Here endeth the "I'm-still-alive-only-very-badly-eyestrained" announcement. Regular blogging shall resume later today.
Thank you, my darlings, for understanding.
