  1. I'll go with 'spacy' - as in 'He seems so spaced out...' (people referring to yours truly) Ahem, moving right along...

    Being a kite fanatic, Winston's comment about the kite 'rising highest against the wind' leapt out at me, as well as a couple of other gems in there. That could apply to maintaining a decent blog or site too hey? Never mind, the long term results can be amazing.Hang in there, and keep up the great work on your blog. :-)
