Apologies for the lapse that wasn't meant to last but lasted more than expected and therefore shall not last any longer than it was formerly supposed to (last, yes).

It was brought to my attention that we entered the Year of the Monkey which, unfortunately (at least for this year), is not my sign. This means that, like the rest of you who were not born in 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992 and 2004, I have to fight my way through this year like a big guy, despite the repeated assaults of a vexatious Fate and without the benevolent protection of the Stars (yeah, and Stripes too).

If you believe in this kind of mystical justifications for the less elegant "sh* happens", of course.

I have to kick (that is with a "C" and a "K") the monkey's ass a bit more, but general bubbling and other kinds of monkey spanking shall resume pretty soon. Thank you for your patience.

And oh, the situation on the email answering front is next to catastrophic. Starting to look like a... Vietnam Quagmire®.
Okay, it's way past catastrophic.

But don't you despair. I'll get over it before the next year of the Sheep, for sure.

Mes excuses pour le hiatus qui n'était pas censé durer mais a duré plus longtemps que prévu et ne devrait en conséquence pas durer nécessairement plus qu'il n'était initialement supposé (durer, oui).

Il a été porté à mon attention que nous sommes entrés dans l'Année du Singe qui, malheureusement (pour cette année au moins), n'est pas mon signe. Cela signifie qu'à l'instar de ceux d'entre vous qui ne sont pas nés en 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992 et 2004, je dois tailler ma route cette année comme un grand, en dépit des assauts répétés d'une Destinée vexatoire et sans la bienveillante protection des Etoiles.

Si vous croyez en ce genre de justifications mystiques au moins élégant "les emmerdes, ça arrive", bien entendu.

Je me dois de botter le train du singe encore un peu, mais les opérations de bouillonnement général et autres fessées de macaques devraient reprendre incessamment. Merci pour votre patience.

Et, oh, la situation sur le front de la réponse aux emails est quasiment catastrophique. Ça commence à ressembler à un... Bourbier du Vietnam®.
OK, c'est franchement catastrophique.

Mais ne désespérez pas. J'en viendrai à bout avant la prochaine année de la Chèvre, c'est certain.
