I have not been slacking off; I have been playing go online.
The BGA KGS Tournament has started and will last all of August.
There are only 27 of us so far, but players can sign up any time during the month and can participate without being BGA members, so perhaps the numbers will increase a bit.
(This accounts for one online game; the others I have been playing at OGS. I’ve rather fallen in love. More on this soon.)
