mostly metrics

I now have two half-written posts, one about health care reform and the other about representations of characters on book covers sitting in my drafts folder, and apparently I just don’t have the heart to even risk stirring up debate today, because I can’t make myself finish and post them. They’re topics near and dear to my heart, too, so it’s sad that I’m feeling so gun-shy.

So this is a mostly metrics post. I’ve only got 80ish miles to go to Minas Tirith, and I keep being appalled that it’s so close to the end of July, because it seems like there should be enough July left for me to get to Minas Tirith.

miles to Minas Tirith: 500.6
