I essentially lost an entire week of writing, dear readers, and I do apologize. For the past week I was presented the opportunity to experience life under the relentless authority of food poisoning.
Said experience left me weaker than a one-legged kitten, and thus, as I could neither read much nor write since the computer screen (as well as most all my faculties) was an infinite roiling Hell, and I was forced to halt my daily reading and writing habits.
Healthy days have mercifully returned.
So I'm now tasked with accumulating the properly suitable ingredients to once again start serving up your fresh, hot Cup o' Joe. I thank you for your patience and normal service will shortly resume.
