Did you miss me? Sorry to miss you on Wednesday, but I was down with a bout of food poisoning. That’ll teach ME to eat things that haven’t been deep-fried.

No, seriously, nothing can live through deep-frying. FACT. If you eat only deep-fried foods, you will not die of food poisoning, I promise. You will, however, need a larger coffin than if you eat only salads.

Anyhoodle, now that I am up and about I am about to give you the gossip links that I should have given you before. I may even give you some more, if I feel generous, but twenty or so is a good place to start. Now with bonus Crasstalk!
