to plagerise my dear friend josh's blog entry *
"so yes, it has been a long time. perhaps my longest break ever. dargh. i was actually somewhat fearful that i'd be overwhelmed and just give it up altogether. but here we go. . ."
the longer i wait the harder it gets. but just a belated merry christmas to all you devoted friends. we will load up photo's and gush all about the festivities soon.
