With less than a week to go, I think it's safe to say that Yes, Virginia, I have once again bitten off more than I can chew when it comes to this whole Halloween costume thing. I'm too cheap to buy fancy costumes, you see, so I'm always all "Sure, I can make that!" Except that I can't. Or I can, but it ends up involving something like... oh, I don't know... sewing fifty miniature chicks onto my son's clothing. Or---not that I'm naming anything specific, like maybe THIS WEEKEND---spending half a day modifying a skirt for my daughter using scissors, lace, stitch witchery, and colorful...
So, as it turns out, it's rather difficult to follow-up a deep, dark angsty post in any meaningful way, and today I'm tired enough that I'm not even inclined to try.

The bad news is that you're gonna be on the rocky server-changing seas for a few more days yet. Hold on tight.

Bitacle is still siphoning my content and AntiLeech doesn't appear to be working properly. Whether that's because I set it up wrong or bitacle is getting around it, I'm not certain. Back to the drawing board.
