So this is the first node I've e2'd for a while. Not that 'e2' is a verb, then again 'node' wasn't truly a verb until e2 came along.
This is not good.

The reasons I have been away are many, and quite boring to listen to so I shall skim over them. They are part of a list of memories which I'm sorting into 'evoke' or 'repress' piles, and include, but are not limited to: bouncing around europe, being thought of as God by a terminally ill lady in Dublin Conolly train station (temporarily!), Scandanavian girls, Long long distance relationships, the sacred art of thinking while phding etc etc etc etcetcetcetcetcetcetcetc...
plus a rather disturbing lack of intensity and a propensity for introspection.
As Red Forman would say in 'that 70s show' I am acting like a Dumass.
This has to change...
