Housekeeping, cryptically

As I have alluded in a few posts and comments, Events are Transpiring in my 3-dimensional life.  These are Good and Hoped-for Events, but there are a few too many exigencies and potentials for reversal for me to go into much detail just now.  Once certain windows of time have closed sufficiently to assuage my superstitious nature, I’ll stop being cagey.  (Hint — if all goes as planned, two other League contributors and I will all be in roughly similar circumstances over the next several months.)  But for the near future, I’ll be checking in here much more sporadically than usual, and posting infrequently.  (Sadly, this brings to a close any more monitoring or responding I’d be doing at recent super-fun comment threads.)  I leave you in Rose’s eminently capable hands, and will be back with you soon.

He enjoys reading, running and cooking. He can be contacted at blindeddoc using his Gmail account. Twitter types can follow him @russellsaunder1.


  1. If you’d like a slightly older one, I know of two great possibilities. Though you’d want them to keep their California residency so you can pay in-state tuition.

  2. Say no more, Doc… I’m mailing my cats to you as we speak.

  3. Accept the token and meaningless but still heartfelt prayer of the agnostic for your current project’s best possible outcome.

  4. Thanks to everyone for the good wishes. As the Better Half and I abide in a somewhat stressful but essentially happy time, it is indeed very heartwarming to have your thoughts and prayers.

    • As an aside, though:

      Doc, you’re… like, the worst cryptographer, ever.

      • I am juuuuust private and superstitious enough that I feel the need to be juuuuuuust a little bit circumspect until various legalities have been settled. Having been in similar straits not so long ago, with sadly disappointing results, I am just self-protective enough not to want to be totally crystal clear right now.

        • I was going to say; you could loan mine.

          One’s in college – the other one’s just out of diapers.

          Your choice! They both eat about the same!

  5. If this involves something wonderful which appears to be the case. I hope it happens for you!

  6. You’re pregnant?

    Look, I don’t want to call your professional competence into question or anything, but…are you sure? Maybe you should get a second opinion.

  7. Missed this post early. Best wishes that everything goes smoothly.
