It’s been a right good long time since I last posted. Reason number one: my family has moved away from Japan and back into the good old US of A. Feels good to be home. I’ve taken a lot of time to get fat and happy on all these American restaurants I’d been missing for the last 4-plus years. During this time, I haven’t played any MMOGs – in fact, I missed Children’s Week again! The only dang achievements I am missing for the world event meta. But the future is looking up.
