Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Time to break communications here for a while and go do other things for a bit.

If I don't get back to the screen by this afternoon, I will be on holiday again tomorrow, so let me take this time to say all of you please have a fun and safe time ringing in the New Year. Remember, do not shoot live rounds up into the air--they come back down really fast and can go through people, including you if you're a particularly accurate shooter. Likewise, remember that all of your various artillery pieces should be thoroughly wormed and spunged after firing and before reloading, and the rammer should always be handled with an underhand grip on the shaft.

As for food, I know this will pain Skinnydan, but New Year's around here just isn't the same without a big mess of greens cooked with a little hog jowl and some pepper sauce, cornbread, black-eyed peas, a big Virginia ham, and sweet tea. But never fear--Possumblog Kitchens staff are hard at work on a kosher version of the above.

If I DO manage to get back here after the orthodontist visit, disregard the above admonitions until later on, around 5:00 p.m. or so.
