I can't believe I've gone so long without a post over here. I've been playing more with Facebook, which I think is a nice way to reach people who won't hunt down the blog, or visit it regularly. Plus there are games and distractions that create a feeling of community. I've pittered on Twitter some. I find Twitter a fine place to follow other people, but not a good means to communicate. There are times someone will post something that I want to reply to, but it all seems to get lost in the Tweets, and there's no thread for the conversation. It leaves me feeling like I'm in the middle of a large room, and everyone's talking at once, but no one is actually talking to each other -- just talking. Which is fine if you want to hear what someone is saying, but not so good if you want to have a discussion. Both have served as a distraction from blogging, especially entries longer than two sentences.

The next big event for us is the roller derby this weekend! We're ready to watch the QuadSquad
I guess that's about it ... our August recap from the slacking blogger. Next post will come sooner, I promise.
