... et voilà, here comes another blog for tonight - just to prove that Juju The Brave and I haven't forgotten you lot and love you all very much. :)

This is just a quick note to confirm that I am held hostage in the library basement and that I can hardly type in those rusty handcuffs I'm alive & well.

However, I won't be able to update Thee Temple ov Psychick Blah on a more regular basis before mid-July.

Why don't you cut some silhouettes or visit Thee Forum ov Psychick Blah in the meantime?

Oh, and did I mention that I suffer from gum abcesses, eczemae and viral infections of my lymphatic system? I guess it's syphilis. Or maybe my badly embalmed organs are starting to rot on the inside. Also, I seem to have developed cronic insomnia. o_O
