Normally I'd tell you I've been reading but just not commenting, but in this case, I haven't even really pulled up LJ (which is where I read most of my RSS feeds too so now out of the loop in so many ways).
I haven't disappeared. ...just e-hiding a little.
So if you posted something really important, and I didn't reply, it's not personal. I'll be back... hopefully this week, if things go back to normal.
