I must apologize to anyone who has left me a phone message in the last few weeks; for some inexplicable reason, I have been completely unable to deal with my phone (cell or home). As a result, I now have a big pile of messages, which I must go through and sort. It's weird -- usually it's e-mail that piles up, but I've been relatively good about e-mail lately, and it's almost as if as a result, I have become incapable of dealing with phone.
It's as if I can only handle one medium of contact at a time. Next week, you will only be able to reach me by walking up to my front door and ringing the doorbell. And the week after that, I will hide in bed with the covers pulled over my head and answer to nothing.
