when i set up this blog, i neglected to input an e-mail address for comment notification. that means that over the past few weeks, i didn't realize that anyone was reading or commenting.
imagine my delight (that you're reading) and sorrow (that i missed you) when i actually visited my own blog today and saw the comments!
i am so sorry for my oversight in this matter. henceforth, i shall be notified of new comments and i will do my best to respond in a timely manner.
