I did not totally drop off the face of the earth, just haven't been up to doing anything in LJ.
The good news: I have a job doing a cross of what I used to do (VFP scut work) what I want to do (.NET, business systems analysis).
The better news: I have a wonderful wife who takes loving care of me when I am out of work and depressed, and takes even better care of me when I have a job.
The crappy news: Both of my football teams pulled spectacular choke jobs this past weekend.
If I can, I'll post detailed entries about (in no particular order) the job, the housecat from hell, my Christmas weekend, the lights of Las Vegas, and other random irrelevencies.
