1) Thank you, each and every single one of you. Even you, Tricky. I know at long last who my friends are.
2) I spent a wonderful 3 hours in a small press chat last night. I got no less than 3 paying -- mind you, paying -- assignments in that time. I also discovered just how much my presence and my contributions were missed, and exactly how reviled you are in creative circles. Half the reason no-one communicated openly with me in the past 2 years was because of my association with you, Tricky. The other half was because they didn't know when would be the proper time to approach me after all we'd been thru.
3) I found that image to be both offensive and threatening. I will now be guarding my precious children with even more vigor than ever before.
4) Does anyone mind if I have my own little meltdown here? It ain't gonna be pretty.
