Where have you been? Are you still alive? Do I even know you?
These are all very good questions, valued reader, so let me e’splain…
… No, there is too much.
Let me sum up.
The family — the Ladybug, the Queen B, and I — went to Florida for two weeks to be with her family after the passing of Papa B. Then the extended family — the Ladybug, the Queen B, the Nana B, and I — went to Europe for three weeks, where (among other things) I drank celestial beer from glasses the size of my head, ate french fries with every possible accompanying condiment except ketchup, and threw myself off the top of a 340-foot-tall model of an iron atom. Upon our return to the States, I then spent most of a week in Oregon for Mathfest, where I organized a tangram-based undergraduate activity and met the mind the behind Division by Zero, who was kind enough to call me a “fellow math blogger” despite all evidence to the contrary.
So, I’ve been busy.
But I’m back, and I’ve got some stories to tell over the next few days.
