Big props to all yall egging me on to getting this part of the story rolling. Between the radical change in tone, and having to totally refurbish my blog due to a software glunch (yes, dammit, I said glunch), and dealing with a buttload of new duties at work, mostly related to the dreaded standardized tests that they measure all us teachers by these days, I've been in over my head. So I'm using this 3-day weekend to play ketchup. That is, it'll come out slowly and in clumps, but only if you keep beatin it. Threats of violence have been greatly appreciated, guys.
