The fiery version of Emily took a hiatus for a while and seems to be stealing back now bit by bit (and sometimes in wild spurts, which she often regrets). Whether this version blogs as much as in previous fiery-er seasons remains to be seen. Facebook nibbles diligently at the edges of the narrative urge.
What's most confusing about this blog at this point is my impending entry into -inlawhood, which takes a big whack at the concept of futureinlaw. (As for the phrase's professional interpretation, I'm still postponing that pretty successfully.)
