No, despite numerous pleas and fervent wishes, I have NOT vanished from the face of the earth. Due technical issues not within my control (yet still my own dang fault), I’ve been without net access for a couple days. When I return from vacation (Tuesday afternoon), I should have at least a couple good postings up here, including at least one moderately incriminating and potentially scandalous photo from my vacation and a new contest.
Yes, I miss you folks, too. Even some of the trolls. (Them, just not that much.)
(Way, WAY overstuffed on outstanding Italian food right now)
