slimy, double-crossing, no-good swindler
! You've got a lot of guts coming here, after what you pulled.[jk!]
How you doing, you old pirate? So good to see you! i never thought i'd catch up with you again. Where you been?
(Star Wars references. They arrived right before you did. i'm sorry.)
So, in all seriousness, i figured you must be doing all right, because if anything terrible had happened to you, TT and/or Minerva would have known about it and let the rest of us know. Only recently did it occur to me that maybe something catastrophic happened that was so bad and/or so personal that you wouldn't have wanted them to tell us. If that's the case, i won't say another word about it, but if you want to tell us what kept you, i'm sure i'm not the only one who'd listen. In any case, welcome back!
Unrelated PM headed your way.
