The big game of the week is a) only confirmed in Europe and b) involves a country that's burning.

We're not back to full service quite yet this week, but we might have a higher quantity of shadowdrops than usual as certain branches of Nintendo return from a long vacation. We're not looking at double digits yet, though Europe gets there on the strength of an Australian Open tennis game (be sure to help where you can with the devestating wildfires there this Aussie summer).

Normal service resumes next week, but we needed to get back on the horse.

You OK, dog? It's been a while.

The only positive thing in the last few weeks is that I managed to win Whamageddon, but that was largely due to spending ten nights in the QE2 and I don't mean the cruise ship. Diabetic infections SUCK. But I'll refer you here for more details on that, and we'll catch up the profiles I missed over the weekend.
