Smokey: Don't worry, I'm not going to pop your balloons.
Balloony: ... okay.

Look to Your Left

As you may have noticed, we don't always post as regularly as we wish we could.

But we've noticed that many of you keep turning up, even when we haven't posted anything new in awhile. We thank you, and we hope to do better for you in future. To that end, though, we're curious. What do you, our loyal readers, wish we would do?

There's a poll in the sidebar you can contribute to, or you can leave a comment.

We do, of course, retain the right to do whatever we feel like, regardless of your desires, but we are genuinely curious, and we do genuinely want to make you happy, so we promise to take your opinions into consideration. Thanks.

Scruffy: (happy, friendly and cheerful) Don't worry about it! I never do.
