Omigod it's ME.

Hi!

OK, so I'm kind of back after a long-ass, fairly uneventful drive. I say "uneventful", but that's so not true- I passed right by what is only the largest cross in the western hemisphere! The air was electric, I tells ya.

Things are a little mad at the moment as I settle into the All-New Super Secret Final Girl Headquarters and sort of...you know, rearrange my whole life. However, before you can say "Phew, Final Girl is here and so I can breathe again and I also have something to take my mind off my bursitis again!", I'll be up and running and back to normal, I swear. In the meantime...

Several of you got in touch to let me know that shortly after I began my massive trek, Final Girl's beloved spokesmodel/mascot Charles Nelson Reilly passed away at the age of 76. Though this is sad news indeed, Charles Nelson Reilly will live on forever here at FG as well as in my Match Game DVD box set.

What? Match Game was the shit.

In less depressing news, you can click right the eff here and read my interview with Texas Chainsaw Massacre star Marilyn Burns. It was soooo awesome to pick her brain for a while; I mean, how frickin' cool is Marilyn Burns?

It'syou! Hey, welcome back. Hope the move went well. Great interview.

Would write more, but I'm semi-delirious with a fever. So if this is all, like a hallucination, and I'm posting this at washingtonpost.com or something... sorry everyone...

Ah. What a relief. The internet without your blog is like McDonalds without fried apple pies... A sad sad place. Oh when will they ever bring them back?
