N.B.: This is my first post of several today. See below for the juicy details.

All right. This has gone far enough. In recent weeks, there have been three days on which I’ve failed to post. I know it’s about quality rather than quantity, blah, blah, blah, but my OCD is hounding me like an avenging Fury. (I tried to write something about the unposted posts following me like Hera’s gadfly followed Io, allowing her no rest after Hera discovered that she was Zeus’s latest infidelity, but for some reason—perhaps senility is finally setting in—I just couldn’t construct the clause in any way that both made sense and had any shred of elegance at all. So I had to make do with the less apt but more straightforward Fury bit. Please forgive me.)

In any case, I’ve decided to post four times today, thereby getting rid of the backlog of unposted posts in one fell swoop. Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more. . . .

It seems to be my day for allusions that aren’t quite right. Please forgive me. Maybe I’ll be more awake later in the day.

Or maybe just more senile.

Wish me luck.

    Darn it all. I was so looking forward to a day of mythological allusion.

    I shall go back to rolling my boulder up the hill.
