The Weekly Distraction #11


They say absence makes the heart grow fonder.  I bet my not being around left you broken, readers: wandering around with no purpose, looking at walls for hours on end, resorting to watching anything on Comedy Central other than ‘Friends’. I know, it was hard. But I’m here now, and we’re back with a vaguely Olympics-themed edition!  Thanks to Cally Beckley for filling in for me while I was away.
