The hiatus is over, as is 2004. A miserable year that was. And what a horrible note it ended on. I am very sorry that I did not talk about it, but what was there to say? After all, no one is really reading this, right? (Scratch that.) Anyway, my fellow bloggers at the scene fulfilled their roles; I failed mine. I couldn't think what to say, really. It is a tragedy. A major tragedy. I think the toll is nearing something like 150,000. Jesus. Anyway, happy new year.
