Time out

I've decided on a minimum 30-day time out for myself. I'd like to try it and see how it feels. I'm thinking I'll come back, but who knows? Maybe I'll like it? Bye-bye! :)

    To quote George Harrison*:
    See you around the clubs.


    Take care of yourself; we'll miss you.

    I'm going to check your activity every single day until your 30 days are up.
    Someone has to keep an eye on you to make sure you ain't cheatin'.

    The hardest part about a time out is not being able to clear up any inconsistencies or inaccuracies about the situation and not being able to defend yourself. I found that the most difficult part. We'll do our best to not talk about you and make up theories as to why you left temporarily. I fully expect a very good story upon your return!
