Give up? They've all returned. I'm back, everyone! After an unintened sabbatical, I'm once again back on the Net. The short short version of my alibi is simple: I had writer's block. I wasn't writing reviews, the last planned part of the Avatar thing is still in the works (due to massive writing block), and I was nicely (but still suckily) dumped.
So now your dear friend is back, single and ready to end the year better than it started. We'll be starting with my first review outside of the Cannonball Read (of which I am not a part of this round), which should be up shortly. Good to see you all again!
