December: We are informed that funds will be disbursed "by the end of January" (which is also the end of said country's fiscal year).
Today: we are informed that the foreign ministry in charge of these things hopes to be able to communicate with us in two to three months to let us know when checks will be disbursed.
I ain't never seein' this cash, I think.
In other news, I continue not to be dead. But monkey-fightin' busy. Still, I expect that regular blogging will resume soon. And if it doesn't, I hope to post something in two to three months letting you know when it will.
