I think it's funny how such a large proportion of diary entries here start out with an apology for how long it's been since the author wrote. I realized a while ago that I had the same tendency in writing e-mails to friends I hadn't written in a while. Invariably, the e-mails would begin with "Sorry I haven't written in quite a while. Partially due to busy-ness, but also just due to my own laziness."

It occurred to me that this must get annoying to whomever I'm sending ('cause it typically happened to be the same people). So right then and there I resolved never to give an excuse for a late e-mail, but to make up for it instead by giving more details on what happened since last I wrote.

Just an amusing thought that struck me this morning. There's a whole lot of "been a long time since I wrote" being saved for posterity here. :-)
