Instead, I give you Boxing Kitteh:
Because while my body came back from vacation, my desire to blog about serious shit is still loafing in the sunshine with a prickly pear vodka in its hand, that's why. (And yes, the stuff is delish. If you're ever in AZ, have some.)
If it makes you feel any better, I'm signing off to make fajitas and read Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs and Steel. If that's not serious, I don't know what is. It could signal a return to blogging about the Really Serious Issues shortly.
Or just drive me back into the loving arms of ICanHasCheezburger.com. Oh, look! There's an awesome Fox Affiliate Fail!
