I’m taking a brief hiatus from the blog for two reasons. First, my double-vision hasn’t completely faded (see my previous posts on this). My ophthalmologist, who is also an optometrist, is ever the optimist. So he says I’ll be fine soon. But still, I could use a break from the headaches that the computer screen provokes.

Second, I will be traveling this weekend for a friend’s wedding. So it would be difficult to write anyway. With hope, the phrase “open bar” will be uttered at the reception.

In any case, I’m continuing my tradition of posting completely irrelevant videos while I take a short break. Here is a clip of an “Animaniacs” character reciting the countries of the world. It’s dated but bizarrely fascinating, so enjoy.

See you in a week or so.
