Holy crap has this been a crazy couple of weeks. But I'm through it. I've fought the good fight, and I made a judgment call. And, strangely enough, I don't feel as bad as I expected to. I don't know how at all, but (as Claire from Heroes said back when the show was awesome, i.e. season one) I walked through fire and I didn't get burned.
Time to start stretching those flirting muscles, 'cause I'm back, baby!
