A Quiet October

Things are going to be unusually quiet around here this October. So quiet it will be downright spooky! No, I won't be locking myself in a room and watching as many horror movies as possible for the month. I wish I had time to do that again this year but no such luck.

I'm bracing for an especially busy month at work which just happens to coincide with having family in town for a visit and a few other stressful things all happening this month. Some of was poor planning on my part; most of it was unavoidable. In any case, I expect to have much less free time for atheist blogging than usual.

Before I realized how much I had to do, I had the fleeting thought that I might try to take the entire month of October off from blogging. In fact, I was toying with the idea of completely unplugging myself from the Internet for a month (except for what parts of it I have to use for work, of course). I think I will try that at some point, but it probably won't be this month. As busy as I expect to be, it doesn't seem like a fair test of my willpower or whatever else it might test. And besides, I'm not sure I could go a whole month without checking in on #manspreading.
