I've been laid out for the past week with a massively bad cold. It doesn't help that I got the cold the day I started a new job and a week after starting grad school.
In short, with all that plus Christmas, Part II of Dative is going to be delayed for about a week. Hopefully not more. I've got food to cook and gifts to wrap, and oh yeah, those pesky reading assignments and job duties. Should be back on an even keel shortly.
Now if only this damn cough would go away..
