Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Cambodia and Diablo 3 disrupt my blogging.

Hi folks,
It's been a few days since I've blogged, and I didn't even notice. There are a couple of reasons for this, and I thought I'd share them with you.

First, my wife has just left on a research trip to the wilds of Cambodia. She's a soil chemistry researcher, and she's over there for a couple of weeks taking samples and doing some science to determine whether/how badly the water there is contaminated. She's an aquatic ecologist, by training, and she's involved in a continuing research project examining the presence and prevalence of arsenic in well water. She's also starting a project of her own that looks for fecal indicators in ground water. Neat projects, but it does take her to the other side of the world every few months. I'm green with envy! And, as anyone knows, having your wife leave the country is not particularly good for one's routine.

Secondly, Blizzard finally released their long-anticipated Diablo 3 on Tuesday. It's at least as good as I was hoping it would be, and that's super-good. There have been some problems with game servers over the last couple of days, but that's to be expected and I'm sure it'll even out over the next few days.

Any-who, blogging has taken a backseat to things like loneliness and video games this week. I've got some things to post in the near future, though, so you'll be seeing some new things soon.  First up will be Sheaffer's Skrip Brown (which I got in an ink drop a few months back) and then I'll post a few reviews on some of my recent pen acquisitions. I'm turning to pens for a while because Audrey took the camera with her, and I'm not sure how well my phone works as a macro lens. (I've seen some awesome pics that people have taken with the iPhone through a jeweler's loupe, but I don't have one of those yet.)
