I'm home, doing the last-minute at-home stuff before I ride to the airport tonight. I put a post-dated entry up above as a general news alert (me on vacation! This is a big deal!), but here's a current mention of it. I'll check in on y'all to an extent -- I have no idea how much access I'll have to the Internet during all this -- but I wanted you to know.
Meanwhile, to celebrate my first friends-locked post, why not some profanity? Here's Randy Newman's "Happy":
I woke up this morning with a smile on my face And a great big hard-on for the whole human race I love everybody and I want you to know I've got the world by the balls and I won't let it go And I don't give a damn if they take me away 'cause I'm so fucking happy So fucking happy I'm so goddamn happy today
