Sorry for the disappearance . . . .

It's been a rather full two or three weeks here, what with the new job and getting my baggage together for a return to studenthood.

And then there's the new Blogger, but I'll reserve my bile and venom for after the new year.

I could also go on at great length about the new adventures of my worthless National Command Authority, but I shall also reserve that for after the holiday season. Suffice it to say for now that I would be embarassed if Josef Mengele got to stay in Paraguay with no fuss and that my daughters were asked to leave.

First and foremost, I want to thank all of you for even bothering to stop by this den of inequity, philosophical liberalism and Burke-ian irony, and generally unfocused rambling. I never thought I'd convince myself to start blogging, and I'm still convinced that I'm in the lower circle of hell when it comes to untalented bloggers, but I've met some good people here in the last nine months. You all can wrench your shoulder patting yourselves on the back after you're done reading this.

Vicus, Pam, Anna, Cherry, Gautami, HE, WW, Raincoaster, Wanda, Miss C, Miz B, Awaiting, Kindness, Ziggi, Mark, Tom, Richard, Daphne, Carmenzta - I don't really care what are your religious or philosophical stripes. But I do wish you and others a good end to this year and a better year than before.

Hopefully I'll be back on more frequently now.

Mike

How good to hear from you.
The wishes are reciprocated, provided that you didn't tell anyone I said so.

Fronty! So good to hear from you again! We all missed you so much! I made a wish on the Vicus blog that you would write a new post... and look... it happened!

I think Vicus really is Santa Claus.

Does this mean vicus has a belly that that jiggles like jelly when he laughs? And wears a red suit around this time of year, causing young children to scream in terror?

Fronty, so good to see you back darlin'. It's been way too long. Best wishes to you for a happy ending to the year and a better year to come. Yes, I wear rose colored glasses, why do you ask? :grin:

Da Mike - I'm a schmuck. Damn right you're included. Besides, I got no taste for liver.

Thank goodness the aliens have returned you, intact...
hopefully the probing wasn't prolonged when the extraterrestrials retrieved the colonic data recorder that they had planted during one of your College blackouts.

Enjoy your new freedom, that faint pinging sound must have been quite a nuisance in movie theatres and funerals.
Now you can look forward to passing through those Airport metal detectors and avoiding those nasty stubby fingered security guards like the rest of us.
Let us put this incident behind us and never speak of it again.

Good to see you back. But absences do not matter between friends, even blogger friends!!

I too echo your thoughts. Religious beliefs do not matter at all.

Merry christmas and happy new year to you.

Cherry Mistmas, Fronty!

See,that's how my speech will be after the kiddies go to bed...yeah, I know, but what can I say I like eggnog with a kick...only way to make it go down easy!

More mince pie for the holidays?

If so, save me a slice! :)

Happy holidays and a prosperous New Year!

Just super great to have you back, our good friend and witty master of reparte.

We have missed you, of course, but we never abandoned you.

Just last night, HE was over here and we were wondering about you...and there you were!

I think you can feel the collective embrace of us all, welcoming an old friend back.

A Christmas gift, it is.

All the best. I hope your Christmas is warm and cozy and filled with joy.

Hope you will be watching Blazing Saddles over the holiday and pondering the universal truths which are contained in this seminal meisterwerk by the great sage Brooks. "Teutonic Twat" is a phrase which has been on my lips more than once this year.

Merry Christmas Fronty, onward and upward in 2007!

Ok Mike. You said you'd be back more often. This does not look like 'more often' to me. It looks like less. A lot less.

Check in and let us know how you're doing, k? ::smooch::
