Shh...bloggers are napping...

Hi. I'll post the usual Thursday post tomorrow (Friday) uh, how about never? simply because if I do it now, it will be gibberish. And you deserve so much more!

Edited to add: Well, okay, so I had some deadlines, and some guests, and some chores, and you know how it is. Don't you? Please say you do.

But I'm not sick, and I don't want anyone to think my erratic behavior is because of that.

Okay, so the answer to Sunday's puzzle is that the gender is male, and he's referring EITHER to himself or his son. Probably the son, but I can argue it either way, so I'll be interested to see what Will says the answer is.

Our tie-break rule:   In the event that a single round number is announced with a qualifier such as "about" or "around" (e.g., "We received around 1,200 entries."), AND two separate people picked the ranges of numbers just before and just after that round number, the prize will be awarded to whichever entrant had not already won a prize, or in the event that both entrants had won a prize already or neither had, then to the earlier of the two entries on the famous judicial principle of "First Come First Serve," (or in technical legal jargon, "You Snooze, You Lose").  As of July 2012, this rule is officially no longer obsolete (and also I still just like having fine print).
