>This is probably utterly pathetic, but as I have been catching up with all of my delightful blogging friends whose fine prose, wit, and insight I have missed much more than I realized over the last 9 days, I am cheering up quite a bit. Sure some of you up and moved your site and now I have to make a new link to you (sigh), but damn if this isn't exactly what I needed. Reading your blogs is like the big warm hug that I am craving. I don't care if it is lame that I am deriving this from mostly strangers, I think it is awesome.

Thanks folks!
