I was out of town this weekend, to celebrate my daughter’s first birthday in Chicago with my parents, so I figured that I’d throw a fun post up on the blog for you all to enjoy. Unfortunately, Akismet seems to have decided to stage a coup in my absence and tried to eat everyone’s comments, which seriously blunted what would have been a really fun thread. I just returned home and found Akismet drooling like Smaug over its hoarded commentary, loath to release them until I forced it to my will. Maybe it’s time to look at serious spamtrap alternatives.

In the meantime, how about that wacky telescope thingy, eh? (sigh). I know. Thread’s dead, baby.
