Unable to read the blogs I usually follow.

I am incredibly out of touch at the moment.

I'll be home on Friday sometime and will have a look around the blogs, and say what I think. I took a couple of interesting photos on my way down here. I also shouted myself a Skype router adaptor so I can connect a normal phone to Skype! YAY!

I've discovered my Uncle is half right... he thinks AGW is a crock of crap, too. (Or should that be CPRS?)

I'm sorry Minicapt, I'd like to say I've been busy, but I haven't. I've eaten a lot of stuff that I shouldn't and probably put on about a tonne*.

So Telly Tim has 15k hits, a day.... so what, he's been going forever... I've had 5k, in about 2 months.... (I really only count the ones who stay awhile, so it's probably more like about, oh twenty per day. To those twenty, I say thanks! And to those who comment I say special thanks.) But I'm NOT jealous. No. Not me. Nah-ha. M-m. Nope.

*equivalent imperial weight = heaps!

The forum thread on AB's blog today will tip over the one million comments mark. Great stuff. And you'll be there too, one day. Just keep on keeping on. I don't always comment, but I do make sure I drop in here at least once a day.

Safe trip home.

Will you tell us what your Uncle's wrong half is when you get home? And "busy" is often overrated, IMHO. Sedentary & eating things I 'shouldn't' (if I shouldn't eat it, it shouldn't taste so fine) have their place in Life, too!

No, I haven't become addicted to reading the blogs....really, I haven't. I can quit any time I want....really I can (he says in a squeaky voice with beads of sweat starting to form on his fevered brow).

You're on my rotation with Lileks, Blair, Instapundit, Paco and Powerline...pretty good company I think you'll have to admit. Be glad to have you back.

Show off!

Looking forward to your full-bodied return.
(I mean a full-bodied blog, of course. No aspersions are ever cast by me on other people's eating habits.)

Don't bust a blood vessel, blood nut. Take it easy and return when you're back in the swing of things. Mehaul

Once I could rely on the spammers to leave a steady stream of comments. But then Akismet made an upgrade and the stream is dried up. Oh, I still get spam, but now Akismet is tossing it away before I have a chance to look at it.

My best day was around 1600 hits for a post I did snarking The Tim. I need to do that more often.

Kae, glad that your Mum's OK.

I hope you appropriately reduced your carbon footprint by cycling down south......

Thanks all.

Mythus, I don't GET spam! Mind you, I'm not complaining.

Kaboom: I shoulda walked.
I went for a walk along a beach on Thursday, which was lovely. It was a beautiful day - a little windy... I feel like I've been at the beach all day.

I've just got home at about 3:15am, so I'll be pumping out zeds for a while.

See yaz later.
