    I’ve spent the last week at the hospital (everybody involved is fine and recovering at full speed, thanks for asking) and the main thing that I would hope that you’d notice despite your absence is my recommendation that you use your steam account to purchase Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines.

    Seriously. This is one of the best PC games you could possibly ever play and it’s $20.

    Also: Welcome back. You were missed.Report

      Dude, I don’t know what to say. I am very much wanting to respect the magic inter tubes of privacy, but the whole “the last week” thing is a bit chilling.

      Like I say, I don’t know if it was you or Maribou or someone else, but I really hope everything is ok. (I want to ask if there’s anything I can do, other than purchase Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines to help, but I recognize it will come out sounding silly.)

      So seriously, hope all is well. And if there’s anything at all I can do…Report

        Yep, sounded totally silly.Report

          Pshaw. It’s one of those things where, had you been here, you’d have just been waiting around to hear the next bit of seriously-as-good-as-could-possibly-be-expected news.

          When folks hit a certain point, they start going to the hospital for stuff like this, I am told. The vast, vast majority dream of being told news as good as we have been told.

          The worst part is the sitting and waiting and being told that interrupting this chapter risks waking the dragon.Report

    Yeah, welcome back! I was starting to get worried at one point that you’d pulled a Lisa Kramer on us…

    And yes, I am now an otter. Life is good as an otter. I am also Professor Feminism now, but that’s a long story…Report

    • Avatar Tod Kelly says:

      So I hear! Though as super-villain names go, Professor Feminism – dedicated to a life of crime after having been bitten by a radioactive otter – is pretty awesome.

      (I’d ask who Lisa Kramer is, but I guess that’s the point.)Report

      I’ve always thought of E.D. as the Lord Voldemort of the Internet, though now I’m thinking old Voldy wouldn’t have an otter for a Patronus.Report

  3. Welcome back! Hope you enjoyed Hawaii.

    Can I suggest that we all refer to our President as “Barry the Usurper”, in the spirit of John the Bastard and Charles the Fat? Anyone here read the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire? There’s a passage in there that goes through all the ridiculous royal names from the medieval period.Report

    I would trade the last two weeks here for two weeks in Hawaii.

    Not that I don’t love all ya’ll, but… Hawaii!

    Welcome back.Report
