My little freaks, I will be absent next two days since I have my third Borg surgery scheduled for Wednesday! But do not despair :) I have a post scheduled for Thursday, so you will have something to read, but I won't be here to comment and visit your places for a day or two until I return (if I return LOL). Be good, read and comment and I will see you again when the Borg let me home from their Cube clinic upgraded....
