Dr. Bob’s medical report

Hi, I’m afraid that I have to dissappoint those who are waiting to read about alala’s Balkan adventures: Istria is not part of the Balkans, and I’m not alala but the “scarily multilingual academic” (who is somewhat linguistically scared about having to go public without alala’s proven editorial help). The trip was great, and now she’s in the hospital with a pneumonia. It was probably an overdose of recreation. This pneumonia is a pretty nasty thing, but, given the circumstances, alala’s fine and in good spirit. We hope that she’ll be back next week.
