I haven't posted anything on my blog now for over two weeks. It's not that I haven't had ample time or that something is wrong. To the contrary, everything, for the most part, is going very well...but...I confess I do have a "situation" that has been keeping me away from regular cyberspace activities. It all started about a month ago when I got hit by one of Cupid's arrows. At first I thought it might have been a stray arrow that hit me but I have since come to the conclusion that the chubby little cherub knew exactly what he was doing. Since my initial encounter Cupid has now appeared on numerous occasions and while I have dodged my fair share of his arrows I confess he has also hit me on more occasions than I expected...and...this past week-end I was unable to dodge the onslaught of arrows Cupid sent my way...So what do I do now?...I suppose I could go into hiding and try to keep out of sight or get some armor to protect myself but at this point I am afraid the deadly potion from his numerous hits have made their way into my bloodstream and since I don't have an antidote I guess I am just going to have to suck it up and ride this one out. Mind you, it's not that I am suffering or anything but when one gets hits as many times as I have over the past month a sort of madness sits in that makes doing the mundane chores of life difficult. Fortunately, the madness eventually goes away so it is generally best to just go with the flow which is what I am trying to do but in the meantime it's sucking up my time and keeping me away from my computer. I've fallen way behind now on my Mclaren reports and I there are a number of topics I did intend to write about but I am sure you all understand that when Cupid's arrows hit their target there ain't much a man can do about it except surrender to the fate of the god's and their chubby little messenger.

Sorry that I haven't commented earlier, Bilbo. This post was so coy and evasive, I was kind of waiting for the next shoe to drop to find out what all this cupidity is about. So... what's up?

And a McLaren update would be welcomed. I'm interested in getting more of your impressions on TSMOJ. Let your friends at church know that McLaren is also against torture! (See my blog post today for more on that topic.)

Hi Dave,

Sorry I was so "coy and evasive" but I did so because of personal privacy issues. Let's just say I met someone a couple of months ago and that relationship has blossomed into something special...We have spent "alot" of time together over the past three weeks which explains why I have been so silent on my blog and elsewhere for some time now. I hope to post some more on Mclaren's book sometime this week-end but have been lax because let's just say my thoughts and emotions have been on the relationship. If you want more details I can send them via email....bottom line....I am just having a hard time concentrating on anything these days except for the relationship. It's a phase that I know will eventually pass but for now let's just say that the potion contained in the tips of Cupid's arrows has penetrated deep into my heart and soul...

Yeah Cupid! You have my blessing (like you need it) to stay in blog-hiding ... I'd be worried if you didn't :)
