Do you have any freakin' idea how many words you people have written while I've been out of touch? Well, let me tell you. Catching up is going to be an utterly Sisyphean task. (Note that I haven't had any pain meds in about 7 hours. I'll give it a shot, but no promises.)
Also, a note about upcoming posts.
I will post some warnings about when T.M.I. is going to come into play. (Yeah, I know there's no such thing for J.T.S., but the rest of you have standards). Anyway, it'll mostly be pretty mild, but there's one story that just can't be told without more than I'd usually say. You'll be warned.
