MIA-No More

Dear Internet Based E-Mail Services,
I'm sorry for ignoring your for over a week. My parents were in town and I'd always rather spend time with them than on the computer. Friends?

My parents hadn't been together in the US since 2007 and my dad says he's not returning until 2011 so this was a singular opportunity to spend time with them. I forget how life is when they're around. In the past week I saw dozens of relatives I hadn't seen since my parents retired. It was nice and overwhelming and ... comforting? to be unconditionally loved by people who watched me grow up.

On the downside we all got horribly sick so I'm staying in for a few days with a possibly unhealthy amount of eucalyptus, menthol and Smallville dvds. I've been neglecting american life for the past two weeks so I have a lot of work to catch up on too.
