Guys, I love the idea that anyone can comment here, even if they are not yet my LJ-friends, but I can't deal with the ridiculous amounts of spam comments anymore (they just get worse and worse! What is UP, LJ? Fix this!). Therefore, I've changed my settings to only allow comments from friends. Sorry!*
More substantive entries to come!
*If anyone has a better fix for this, please let me know.
