If you’ve been having trouble commenting on this blog or any other WordPress blog, it’s because WordPress.com has introduced some controversial rules about anonymous commenters. You can read a rather hilarious description of the new rules here.
In other news, thanks so much to everyone who expressed concern about me and my shingles (now playing seven days a week, twice on Sundays!). I’m doing absolutely okay. I didn’t realize until I made that post that most people with shingles really suffer. Mine is the most mild case ever – a very small patch that is already halfway to healed. A little Advil and hydrocortizone and I was well able to function normally. (Well, except for the big QUARANTINE sign I had to wear around my neck.)
