It's the new black.
In the Italian tradition, your Gaudy editors have not completed any Gaudy work during this month. Instead, we have celebrated the spirit of Ferragosto, or, depending on how you looked at it, between us completed an international trip, moved back into college and worked 70- and 80-hour weeks in the culmination of a rather large work project.
We apologize. It is not our intention to post and run. Chastised, we return to the blogosphere (and Tweetosphere and Tumblrworld) and prepare to dazzle you once again with our wit and wisdom. Or possibly just our slapdash use of language.
Look for regular programming to resume in September.
