My Triumphant Return

Hey guys! Allow me to offer my deepest apologies for going A.W.O.L. for two weeks. In this particular instance, AWOL refers to "amberance wasn't online" and the reason for that is not my hotel, nor my beautiful Sulu, nor my paramour seem to realize that wireless connectivity is essential for life. I used what little global roaming data I had trying to find something in Wales that turned out to be right next to where I started, checking on trains, and locating a Chipotle in Camden (which was filled with American students and as far as I could tell not one single English person). Sorry to all the people I wanted to meet who follow me on this blog and on Twitter, I simply had no way to contact any of you while I was over, and I promise to do much better next time (which will be February) because I intend to get myself a UK based phone for use when I am in the UK, because it's a lot (I am looking at three trips next year).

I owe you the last 50 Shades Darker post, which I will work on and get up in the next few days, and of course recaps of my time abroad (the short version: I drank a lot, lost my camera, cried over a scale model of Hogwarts, attended two birthday parties and a wedding, got lost in Wales, found myself in Forbidden Planet, and made excellent use of the four poster bed in my hotel room). And then I suppose it will be time to start in on the third installment of the Nonsense Chronicles. I can't tell you how nice it was to not have to look at those books AT ALL for two entire weeks.

Oh how I have missed you, internets.

Yeah, Chipotleway made it over here before Chipotle, so it never really stood a chance.

Yup. I'm such a grown up.

I can't wait to see your next 50 Shades review. I've actually finished the 3rd book (thank god) but part of what kept me going was seeing your blogs about the book.

Hi!
I love your blog!
I recently bought a book and your blog came to my mind immediately: "Fifty Shades of Mr. Darcy. A parody"
You ahould really check it out as it is hilarious in its mockery of the "original" 50 shades.
Glad you're back.
Greetings from Spain,

OMG, still going through blog withdrawal...can't wait 'til the next installment of...ANYTHING you want to write!

Jen Summers said...

Glad you're back! I just finished the third book out of some weird desire to finish what I'd started. It actually depressed me. I mean, literally depressed me. The thought of reading it made my heart plummet a little, to the point where I skim-read the last quarter of the book because I couldn't bring myself to actually read any more of that duck shite.

It's awful.

You're going to hate it.

I can't wait until you have to read it. Hee hee hee...
