Yes, lots of action is happening here all the time! Gabriel e-mailed me this from Venice or wherever the hell he is: "How is it I've been gone barely five days and there are twenty-seven unread Bamboo Nation blog entries in my Google Reader? You're addicted to blogging. We need to do an intervention."
I can't help that I have a deep hunger that can only be satisfied by the tears of babies! Absent those, it's the adoration of the blog-reading public that keeps me going. And I'm sure even the Italians understand that.
