Your humble blogger takes off soon for the legendary undisclosed location, where he hopes to wind down and, perhaps, cultivate his nicer side once again. (Is it just him, or has he been waxing unusually pissy of late?) He won't be gone too long, his functions at The Auteurs' wont be interrupted, but he will be at least somewhat sort of incommunicado. Perhaps there'll be guest-blogging, and perhaps not so much—he's leaving in a hurry and hasn't quite worked it out. You, my fine friends, will discover soon enough. In the meantime, wish me some meaningful relaxation, if you'd be so kind.
