From the rubble of my various sites, it appears that I have managed to get Today running again. Let’s see how long it lasts.

Here in the American Capitol we’re experiencing a dangerous heat wave. While today’s temperatures are only projected to be in the mid to upper 90s, the absurdly high humidity puts the heat index at about 110° F. This is, of course, the weekend I had planned on a lot of outdoor and semi-outdoor physical work, instead of my usual brain — hah hah — work. Well-laid plans and all that jazz.

Emotional Weather Report*: Mild to moderate depression continues, with gradually escalating anxiety expected throughout the day. Expect occasional bursts of survivor’s guilt.

*With a tip of the battered trilby to the patron saint of iconoclasts and subversive masks, Tom Waits.
