Please Don't Talk About Me While I'm Gone

(anybody know that song?)

Got slammed with some new, unheard-of-before-this-morning deadlines at work. February is gonna be brutal, with several massive waves of incoming material. We have to call in extra troops to help me and the graphics designer just to get it all done.

I have to call the IT people tonight to learn how to hook up to the company's network from my home PC because I'll be slinging all kinds of words and committing some serious punctuation and grammar (plus more) at all hours over the next three weeks.

So this means I won't be around here as much to bother people and be a smart-aleck.

Alix, I will find and post the shrimp creole recipes for you, but I promise nothing else
for now until I can get a handle on all the crap coming my way.

So....until I can come up for air - welcome to all newbies, happy birthday to all birthday-ers, and miss you to one and all. I may be able to bop in and out to do a little reading, but that will probably be it.

Just wanted to let y'all know that I didn't disappear without a good reason.

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

or...maybe we should talk about her while she's gone....

I say we do.

Mudbug is the limoncello princess, you know. Her dad made it up in batches many times.
