So, the Baron returns after his Summer lay-about lay-off.

Did I miss anything? No, because I was freebooting around leaving comments about the place, no holiday to sunnier climes for the Baron, in fact no holiday to any bloody climes for the Baron which is a bum deal.

I didn’t abandon blogging completely, after all the work I had put in on the Blog-a-Thon and starting to get the hang of routine writing it would have been a shame for that to go to waste. I’ve done some reviews and stuff which I will post shortly, some of you have been bearing the brunt of my not blogging with me leaving comments the size of which would be termed an essay when I was at school. Sorry about that, it should die down a little more now that I know about trackbacks and such like.

I tried to think up a decent blog for my return so bearing in mind the quality of this one it shows you what an intellectual doldrum August has been! Once I had taken the decision to have a break I decided that I would come back when I actually had somethign to say. To wait until such time where I can’t hold it off any longer and have to blog seemed a good strategy. A lot has been going on in the world that I can comment on and I started to feel the cumulative effect in mid-August as I started to get the first sparks of anger again.

However I was planning to stay away for the whole of August in solidarity of the schools and shit going back -when I were a lad we didn’t do school in August, at all, ever, not one single day – only once was it ever in question and that was when I was in Germany aged 16 and the school term started Aug 31 and a group of us bunked off in protest. I thought yeah stand up for the freedom to have August off. Circumstances tho’ dictated that if I was to mark my passing into what Haywood perceives as the Blog Middle classes -the 10k hit, I was either going to have to convince people to stay away or return before Sept. So my apologies comrade students the Baron has taken the Blog-City shilling, I’m not proud of myself!

As for the 10k hit I swear if whoever it is doesn’t leave me a msg I shan’t be chuffed having come out of hibernation early and all. It’s likely to happen early tomorrow GMT in my opinion -of course if you’re on a Mac the alarm bells will ring and confetti will become your OS X screen saver, if you’re on a PC you’d never be expecting that to work properly anyway! The Red Baron Milestones board awaits your arrival oh fabled 10k hitter and the next milestone isn’t until 750 comments and that’s a fair way off so this is it miss it, miss out!

Welcome Back Baron!!!
Now do I get a trackback for that Haywood refrence? Who gives out these elusive trackbacks? Do the trackbacks exsist, or am I off on a snipe hunt?

I am so glad to have you back. You went on hiatus just as I found you. And in case you were worried, I found out the meaning of “anorak” from my a Brit source.
