Hiatus until the new year

While we could continue with the M-W-F schedule during the holidays, there really isn’t much of a point. On top of that is the fact that we’d like a break once in a while too. Three entries a week might not seem like much to the casual reader, but we’re busy people with lots of things going on (mainly work). Plus, we’ve done a damn good job sticking to our...

Warning: Potential Spoilers Abound – I’m comparing a book and a movie so that...
