I once was lost, but now am found...

Well, another Christmas, another moan!!!
This glorious Decebuary my droogs, has come along and like tolchocked me right on the top of my head, leaving me sprawling. It started with the glorious Swine flu. Spending 6 days laying on the seetee, coughing my lungs up, fighting back a real horrorshow pain in the gulliver, and flitting through hot and cold spells, all the while my work begins to pile up.
Nearly dying was compounded when i returned to the graft last Wednesday. A killer day, a tonne and a half of work for your humble narrator. I rabbited away for a sullen 12 hours before deciding it was time to return to my abode to get a bit of spachka.
Before rousing the morning following, i was woken by a telejingle from my boss and governor, informing me that there had been a fire at the repro house during the middle of the nochy, and that when i arrive i was to bring, if available, a set of wellington boots. Owning not a pair of said footwear, i opted for my old Army boots, and set off on the rattler to my place of graft. Arriving to a scene of utter chaos. During the nightwight, some bratchny pikey had parked an automacar in an alley by the side of our building and proceeded to torch said vehicle, the resulting flames catching some of our file copied proofs in the kitchen area, and causing an inferno that satan would be proud to warm his rookers on.
The glorious London fire Brigade, god save them! arrived at the Rabbit, and proceeded to douse.... sorry soak, the entire building with copious ammounts of corporation ale, that is, water. As one can Imagine, a mixture of computer based products, and a vast majority of paper related articles, and said water, do not mix. Everything not destroyed by the fire and its resulting thick thick black smoke was gutted by the water.
Thinking this was the worse that could possibly happen, while govereeting with the insurance veck, he informed us that they could probably save our hard drives on the macs we use. A streak of glimmering light in what was at that time a dark and miserable time. We got ourselves a new office, and have a new mac.
However my droogs, things got worse, as some other pikey bastards, broke into the wrecked building and stole anything of value.
So now you know my absence... and I end with wishing you all a very merry Christ's Mass and a Happy new Year!
