...he's gone! but he left a note in the mailbox... surely that will explain everything.

Damn, just had my vacation requests more or less denied because a biggish contract that needs attending to at work. I'm sure my company will try to make it up to me but still.

Site of the Moment
Bill the Splut pointed out a great snarky site, The Comics Curmudgeon. Kind of one of those sites that seems obvious in retrospect... there is so much weirdness and lame-osity in the comics section these days. Bill says it can't compare to the defunct Baltimore City Paper's "Funny Pages" but I like it better, since it doesn't try to summarize EVERY comic, and shows the comics right in place. Plus there's an index to sort by individual comic. If you're in a hurry, this day's commentary on Family Circus captures the tone of the blog pretty well.
