Re: Unexplained Absences

That’s well and good for ‘Puter.

GorT has been off time-cavorting again (last week he took the kids camping) and the Volgi is on the road as well, researching new dimensions, plotting the overthrow of certain Burmese-shaped governments, and buying apple butter in Door County, having been rocked at the Oshkosh Air Show (he sent your Czar something like 40 text messages like aswum A380 ovrhed now; cool C-17 landed there; wow they deep fry corn dogs here).

The Czar has just been out with family and the new dog. And the Mandarin doesn’t do jack on the weekends unless he has to. And he never has to.

About The Czar of Muscovy

Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia by upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
