Expect Nothing

... sayeth Juster's Weatherman, "and then the unexpected never happens."

This would be an excellent bit of advice, except for the fact that it is impossible to expect nothing, just as it is impossible not to think of an aqua elephant. In practice, therefore, the sentence translates into a recommendation of low expectations, which I abominate.

For example. I wrote some time ago that I had found a house, and posted a picture of this:

So, not bad; but we won't be throwing palatial parties any time soon. (Who's we, you ask? Me and the two other Missketeers, plus the Chipmunk who lives in the basement.)

At any rate, this is all a roundabout way of telling you not to expect any serious posts for about a week. Expect nothing (pej.)!
