And that's the subtle, nuanced humor you've all been missing while I've been gone.
Seriously...thank you, Andrew. When I was slamming my fuzzy little head against my desk when my computer died, he immediately volunteered to guest-blog while I carefully applied a claw hammer to my iMac, he thoughtfully volunteered to fill in and provided a sense of absolute fun that I try to celebrate in these here virtual pages. If'n you missed 'em, please go back and check out his posts. And while your'e add it, you really oughta be adding Andrew's Armagideon Time to your regular reading. I say this without hyperbole: he's truly on of the sharpest and most entertaining bloggers on comics, music, pop culture, and twentieth-century folly available on the Inter-majig-net. He makes me think, laugh, and ooh and ahh in awe. Also: if you're not careful, you may just learn something. (I'm takin' that phrase back.)
Thank you also to the many, many people who chimed in with message of support, tech help, offers to lend me a computer or even chip in to get me a replacement. Thank you all; you honestly don't know how much this meant to me at a very distressing time. And remember: back up all your files. Even though I had backed up my files daily, I was still distraught at the prospect of losing stuff (like the rest of the year's Star Wars comics panels) that I had sitting on my desktop without being backed up.
Luckily and thankfully, a new computer arrived at Casa Bully this week, and while I curse Macintosh OS Mavericks for doing away with "Labels," I was relieved and pleased at how quickly I was able to transfer everything from old to new.
Which is as good a time as any to thank you, the
And...well, this one's for you, Andrew. (wipes little black button eyes with handkerchief)
