We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms... And the impervious shelter beneath which it has prospered.
I'm off for about 10 days to travel. I'm not telling where I'm going (yet), but suffice to say that this is a trip that I have been wanting to make for quite literally half my life. Pictures, stories, and tales of wine and song to follow when I get back, I'm sure. Probably not too many stories of wild and crazy drunkenness, though, mostly because I'm quite a lousy drinker (in public, at any rate- at home it is a very different story). Obviously blog posts will be sporadic to non-existent in the meantime.
No doubt all three people and their dogs that read this pokey little blog are going to miss the stupidity. So for them, here is a picture of Kate Upton in a bikini, "dancing", to make up for it.
Never let it be said that I don't go the extra mile for my readers. All five of them.
You're welcome. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a long, cramped, boring, uncomfortable, tedious, and generally unpleasant flight to catch before I can start goofing off.
