Definitely not wasted, because I learned quite a bit, but gone nonetheless. I follow several blogs, and I generally catch up on my reading when I log in to post myself. Well if there has been a lapse between post, catching up on my following can take a good bit of time, hence the hour gone. I don't mind though, as it leaves me feeling more like an insider and less like a voyeur into the lives of my blogosphere friends. I am delighted to see the new puppy that Sarah has, and the great prizes that Heather won. My heart is warmed to read about Abbi's accomplishments, and how a mothers love will help a child blossom. It's also great to hear the wonderment of a group of Boy Scouts on a trip to one of our magnificent National Parks.
In essence, I enjoyed an evening with friends, without having to combat the weather or traffic. I'd say that is time well spent today.
I'll talk about King Tut tomorrow.
