Well, I have never really been gone... but I have been delinquent in my duties of blessing this blog with a parade of posts... It's not that I haven't been thinking about it... I have! But, alas, thinking and DOING are two different things... That said, lately I have been on a doing kick... GETTING SHIT DONE, as they say... So, while I am at it, I may as well get this shit done too and start making a concerted effort to build this blog into a regular repository for my random (and not so random) thoughts, opinions, writings, bits of creative bursts... in other words, a bunch of SASSHOLES!
