So, yeah, I’m leaving on vacation today; I’ll be back next Sunday. I know a lot of people think I take a lot of vacations. I don’t think that’s quite fair; I get to take exactly as much vacation as my wife, and, since I’m a freelancer, I’m not paid for mine, if that makes you feel any better.
But I realize that you all probably only care about my vacation schedule in the sense that it affects you, and the only way it really affects you (unless you’ve agreed to feed our cat when we’re away — hi Kerry and Mark!) is in the number of posts on this site. That’s why, for the first time ever, this vacation will feature … a guest blogger.
That’s right: between now and next Sunday, comics and what have you will be analyzed and mocked here by none other than our very own Uncle Lumpy! For those of you who don’t read the comments on this site, Uncle Lumpy (not his real name) is one of the funniest of a very funny bunch of commentors. Known for his ability to lampoon any versification, from Christmas classics to 17th century English poetry, Uncle Lumpy will be amusing and delighting you for the next week. He should be posting his own little introductory metapost around here soon (he’s on the West Coast, so expect a different schedule out of him). So enjoy! Be nice! See you in a week!
