I’m back from self-imposed exile. No, I haven’t been crushed by the weight of current events and the likely demise of humankind. These three weeks away have been filled with many things: disappointing tv revivals, lots of holiday romance movies, pre-holiday crafting, and lots of good plans undermined by my propensity for germtastic attraction. I won’t recall all of my ailments, but instead refer you to a previous post (A Month of Awesome Vs. the Mighty Germ) that – sadly – bears reposting.
