The Curmudgeon is Back!

Having been suddenly summoned to deal with a maximum secret threat to the galaxy, which was handled rather successfully, your Curmudgeon returned to this world to discover that our old adversary, AT&T, had managed to botch up our internet connection again. It only required three days of Curmudgeonly effort to save the galaxy, but then AT&T needed two days to re-establish our internet connection.

So now we have some catching up to do. There may be some cleaning up of the comments, and then we’ll have to figure out what news has been occurring in The Controversy during our absence. We anticipate that our first normal post will appear sometime this evening, after we’re settled again into the CITADEL — the fabled Curmudgeonly Institute for Tactics, Advocacy, and Defense of the Enlightenment Legacy — the secret global nerve center for monitoring events throughout the Creosphere which threaten the values of Western Civilization. That’s where your Curmudgeon is headquartered in his luxurious underground control room.

Anyway, you can all relax. The Curmudgeon is back in control of things.

  1. Hadn’t felt that neglected since my 6th wife ran off with my cat.
    …dang…I still miss that cat…
    Very glad you are back….safe and sane…

    The Curmudgeon is back in control of things.

    … and not a moment too soon!

  3. We anticipate that our first normal post will appear sometime this evening, after we’re settled again into the CITADEL…That’s where your Curmudgeon is headquartered in his luxurious underground control room.

    Whew. Good to know its underground, when I google earth’d you, all I saw was a double-wide, tire swing, and a mangy dog.

    Seriously, glad you’re back. I got a fever, and the only precription is more Coppedge updates!

  4. That’s what you get for letting Coppedge configure your router.

  5. I’m so glad you are back…and in control.

  6. I literally had 600 emails backed up, almost all spam. I’m slowly getting caught up.

  7. What a relief. With all your attention to WND, ICR, Jack Chick and the more flat-earthy “kind” of deniers, I was worried that you might have joined the Discoveroids.

  8. I was worried you had fallen foul of a Discoveryless Institute hit squad.
    Keep dodging the bullet and welcome back.

  9. We were concerned. One of us floated a conspiracy theory that the SC was abducted by Ken Ham to servitude at the Creation Museum restaurant, making Hambo-on-Wry sandwiches.

    Huh. My conjecture had been that you were away attending a week-long seance in honor of the 30th anniversary of the death of Ayn Rand. But by your avatar image, you didn’t look ugly enough to be a prototypical Randite, sensu Alan Greenspan.

    Anyway, I’m happy that Rand is still dead, and that you are still among the living.

  11. You had me checking my RSS settings to see if I’d deleted you by accident.

  12. I, too, am glad (a) that you’re okay and (b) that you’re BACK!
    @TA: Did you mean this?

  13. So happy you’ve returned. And doing well.
    Just try to let us know you are OK a bit sooner next time, please.
    Hey, I’m a mom, I worry…

    @Gary: Yes, thanks for the recue. I seem to keep mixed up HTML and BBcode.

  15. Good to see you back. I figured if you were going to take a vacation (heaven forbid) you would have written something before you left…so I was concerned. Also, I missed the daily dose of curmudgeonly wit.

  16. I left early, so if you returned to a huge mess, it was their fault they didn’t clean up after the party.

  17. Tundra Boy says: “I left early”

    I know. The galactic threat I thwarted was partly based in Canada. We know all about you walrus-eaters. To keep you under control, we’ve altered their DNA. Now, when you consume your national delicacy, certain body parts will shrink.

    I left early

    Yeah, “early” as in “early in the morning”. You left one sock in the upstairs bathroom, we found another in the filter of the jacuzzi, and dare I mention where we found your unmentionables?

  19. Ian quips, “…servitude at the Creation Museum restaurant, making Hambo-on-Wry sandwiches.”

    Geez! And I thought MY puns were bad! See what happens in your absence, Curmy?

    Sure glad you’re back online!
