Not "Goodbye," just a "See ya later."

Things have been anxious for me lately, hence the lack of posting (and I had done fairly good in 2009).  Part of it is my upcoming wedding (the planning of which is in relatively high gear now and going well), part of it is Day Job (nothing worrisome like losing it, just change in the system) and other things of a more personal nature.

Rather than fret over not posting, I have decided to sign off for a bit in an effort to ease my mind over things that shouldn't cause me anxiety anyway. A sabbatical of sorts.

This is, of course, after I do a little makeover on the blog (nifty new banner, slightly easier to read postings, etc). I've got good timing that way.

25x52 will move to its own blog as planned, I've been playing with that layout as well. I have fallen behind on my donations, but plans are afoot to make that up and post them retroactively. I also plan to have a little addition content on that project as well. With luck, that will roll out at some point in April, and I'll make one more post here announcing it before shutting up for good until at least Autumn.

In the meantime, I'll continue to learn to live, taking a cue from here:

Right now, though, I'm going to go watch an episode of Doctor Who and go to bed.

Don't smoke, kids. Or maybe smoke, if you're on a break an in a gold metallic suit. Or somthing...

Hmmm, haven't blogged in over a month. Time to rectify that.

And how do we do that? By showing the hypocrisy that is apparently thriving in Star Wars--and it's not George Lucas tellikng us he never promised a third trilogy. Rather, it's via the seemingly innocent C-3PO:

Awkward? Yeah, but even more so when you see this...

(The folks at io9 dug up this bit of evidence.)

What kind of game are you playing, Goldenrod?
