Why I haven't been posting:

OMG! I just realised I have not updated this since people stopped clapping and Tinkerbell died... You may not believe this, but my hands were chopped off, and I was waiting for bionic ones. I prostrate myself in sorrow and beg thy forgiveness...

Really, I am so busy with setting fire to people wearing Crocs, being distracted by the shiny, and just generally being a terrible burden to various lawyers I met recently that my day is passing in a blur from 8am to the time I run out of alcohol. I am looking at rectifying this. But who cares.

I will try to remember that I promised to update you with my nefarious activities as soon as I get a chance. Truly! Unless of course the pool with the cocktail bar is heated.

I hate RFID technology and want it cast into the deepest darkest pit of Hell.

That is all.
