My apologies for not posting recently. I have been transformed into a komodo dragon. Actually, I had a small intestinal blockage which backed things up, got a massive infection that spread to another system. It got so bad the pain was off the scales and I walked myself to the E.R. because, damn it, I'm too cheap for an ambulance and I'm tough.

Good news is I got the treatment I needed to prevent sepsis and get better, but it left me alternately unconscious, in pain, or blissed out on morphine for a few days. It also means my saliva is about as safe as  that of a komodo dragon, so...yay? Hence the lack of posting. I'm on the way to recovery now so it begins again. Thanks for bearing with me!
