I am not at my best right now. I might argue it’s been years since I was at my best, but I’m not even at a local high right now. I am working on the end of a stomach flu, or whatever cute name you give that disease where you’re just fine, and then you suddenly feel yourself exploding in alarmingly-colored fluids, and then you lie down for 28 hours and aren’t any less tired. Also my back has been aching, which is totally out of character for it. So I apologize for all that going on, although I feel worse about it than you do.
Anyway. In the Nothing Is Happening In Apartment 3-G update last week — and yes, I’ve heard the rumors too; I plan to comment Friday night if I can get more information — I forgot to mention my mathematics blog, so I hope you’ll forgive my mentioning it here. There’ve been mathematically-themed comic strips covering days up to the 14th and then covering up to the 17th of October. Please give them a try, since while they do talk mathematics they’re meant to be quite accessible stuff.
