Reader: Dude, where've you been? We rely on you to write amusing web-based content every day. No posts for nine days! What's up with that?
Me: I've been around. Rochester, MN for Christmas (nice town). Las Vegas, NV the past couple of days (not-so-nice town - I guess that's why they call it gambling. Luckily I didn't chase my losses. Nope, I'm letting the USC Trojans chase them for me. Let's Go Trojans! Win by More Than 8! Fight On!)
Reader: Right on. But dude, where are your highly anticipated year-end lists?
Me: The year is not yet over. Lists will appear in the coming weeks.
Reader: How many times have you seen Lazy Sunday?
Me: Twice, I think. No, maybe four times. A dozen? Nope, I've seen it exactly thirteen times.
