Yeah, hey. It’s been a while, but I’ve got a few things to say.
First, I’m really regretful that this blog went silent for three whole months. As a historian and as a generally morbid person, I’m fascinated by the disrupted communications that compose most of the internet. People disappear from their blogs and the posts on those blogs are left behind, like epitaphs on gravestones. Livejournal, for instance, is littered with them, to the point that I try not to go there anymore. It’s just too engrossing, in all the wrong ways. Though the actual Crab-Flower Club ended ignominiously with the engagement of Jia Bao-yu to Xue Bao-chai, I don’t want this iteration to have a similar fate. That means changes, but not as many or as big as you’d think.
