Greetings from a bar stool of misery! Some of the more perceptive of readers may have noticed a scarcity of raincoaster lately, and you’d have been right. I’m off for an indefinite, but probably short period of time dealing with an uppity liver (imagine! I’ve never given it any trouble!) and will be back to posting as soon as I can whip it into shape. In the meantime, you’ll have to do my drinking for me: can I count on you?
