Just dropping the MIA FYI…I’m presently back in the U.S. of A. visiting with dear family and friends to celebrate birthdays, meet newborn babies, attend weddings, sort out my condo’s new tenancy, and all that good schtuff that always makes these visits brim over with joyful obligation.
As a result, the Monkey screeches (i.e., my blog-posting and reciprocal blog-reading/commenting) may be quieted for the bulk of the week—not assisted by the fact that the Internet speed of my parents’ computer is presumably generated by two hamsters running in a wheel. If I want to spare them the expense of a shattered window and broken PC (when thrown out of said window), it is best that this dial-up connection and I keep our distance from each other. “It’s not you, AOL, it’s me. Well…maybe it is you, but I hope we can still be friends.”
I shall miss you, fine writers of the blogosphere! But I look forward to reuniting on my return from holiday and catching up on your pearls of wisdom 🙂

I suggest they get a third hampster…may help speed up the connection 😉
Have a nice time in America. My father lives in Florida so I go over there quite often though not now that I am an officially starving artist.
P.S Loved that M.I.A reference…

Enjoy your time off and the intake of new inspiration. Blogosphere will still be there when you return. 🙂 Happy Holidays …

We’ll miss you too, MIA! But eagerly await your return, knowing you will have fab stuff to blog about when you get home.
Have fun. No throwing computers, no matter how slowly they run.

It was a pleasure meeting you here in the States! I can’t wait to hear more of the Monkey Screeches!

Likewise, Susan! I’m back in London now and heart-heavy after the utterly lovely time I had back home with family and friends. I really enjoyed learning about your writing experiences and perspectives at the signing and look forward to following your blog! After a long hiatus, I’d better get back to adding new content to mine 🙂 In any case, congratulations once again on your book–can’t wait to order my copy!

And belated thanks to my peeps for your kind wishes! The trip home was good for the soul, and I feel refreshed enough to dive back into writing and, just as eagerly, reading your latest blog updates!
