I’m not sure I really even care.  But I suppose this is kinda cool in it’s own odd little way.  Today I checked back with Klout to see how I’m doing at winning the video game, and it says… drumroll…  I am now a 60!  Six weeks and an extra sun into my Klout experience.  43 days after entering as a 10.  I am now a 60.  A SIXTY!!!  I feel so accomplished, though I’m not really sure it means I’ve actually accomplished anything.  And I’m not at all sure what the hell I did yesterday to drive my score up 6.09 points…  Nonetheless, here I am world.  I have arrived.  And now I can publish my book.  ;))
