I have been most remiss about posting lately, juggling job duties for the past week. My job with the Census Bureau involves nothing more high-tech than a number two pencil, and my other job has been more hectic than usual, with a lot of special events taking place this month.
The Census work has been quite a bit of fun- six of my co-workers live within a quarter of a mile of my apartment, and we have developed a real sense of camaraderie. My job territory is a few blocks north of my place, so I have been hoofing it around the neighborhood, and I have made the acquaintance of a number of people I would probably not have met otherwise. I have always dug my neighborhood, but this job is giving me an even greater appreciation for my environs.
It's been a bad week to miss blogging, with the environmental disaster unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico, the virulently anti-gay reactionary getting caught with a "rent boy", the Arizona immigration fracas, and even plain old Cinco de Mayo. Yeah, great timing on my part... I have some time, so I'll try to post a couple of entries to make up for my appalling lack of attention to this humble little forum of mine.
