Good Morning

by Tanta on 10/09/2008 09:52:00 AM

I will have you know I had a cup of coffee this morning. For the first time in about a month. I am sure that any of you long-term caffeine addicts who have ever had to quit cold turkey for an extended period of time will understand why this fact demands celebration. For me, for the rest of my days, "PPI" will no longer mean Producer Price Index--who cares about that?--but Proton Pump Inhibitor, which is a wonder drug.

At any rate, while I still lack the key qualities of a decent blogger--energy, wit, intelligence, stamina, the attention span God gave a rutabaga--I wanted you to know that I'm still here and in the process of crawling out from under a nasty bout of weather. Who knows but what I might even have something actually relevant to say in the near future? Bear with me, forgive my absence, and I'll try to ease myself back in to regular blogging.

To all of you who have sent messages and inquiries to me and to CR, let me say that your kindness and warmth has meant a great deal. The Pig and I are grateful. (OK, well, mostly me, but the Pig tries to be grateful.)

Now, back to the TED Spread . . .
