It's 3:30 am. I'm awake and restless after 7 hours of sleep. My plan to get my sleep schedule back to normal has hit a road block. But my burden can be your gain--presenting for your amusement, the latest installment of...
Flipping the Clock.
It's time to reset the stat counter again. And, as usual, that means a quick glance at my global demographic...
I like that you can trace my parents' trip to Vancouver through the trail of IP addresses from Saskatchewan to BC.
...and we look at what links led people here.

A few thoughts:
1. Apparently, some people, back in February, agreed with me that this Parks and Recreation quotation was worth noting.
2. And also apparently, many, many more people liked the Barney musical number, and agreed that the key words of the song include some combination of "Lily," "head," and "ass." The video has long since been removed; ah, Youtube and the vagaries of copyright.
3. The review of Calvino's "If on a winter's night, a traveler" seems to have some lasting power to it--I think it might, at this point, be the most searched for page on the blog (excluding the Humbug fiasco).
4. If anyone's interested, my thoughts on Mass Effect and Mass Effect II are here; I never got around to doing more thorough commentary, but these writers started a good ground for debate. Just search for my user name: "Person of Consequence."
That's it. See you in the next 500.
