I'm on dayshift this month and its cut into my free time, so if I'm curt over instant messenger or not answering e-mail and comments, that's why. Also why I'm missing a lot of posts I'd otherwise comment on since the New Year. My various blogs are only getting updated as I need to write/vent/make jokes to preserve my sanity.
I'd like to stay social, but trying to stay social gets stressful enough that a relaxation activity becomes extremely tasking as you try not to offend everybody you know but can't get to speaking to them right away.
I have to prioritize, I know.
Anyway, that's my blanket "no offense or snubbing meant" disclaimer.
