### I'm Back, With Math Jokes

Hello, blogosphere. I haven't seen you in a while. I've been cavorting around these United States for the past few weeks. Maybe I'll update on that, if I remember/have time? The first post after a while is always awkward, because you feel like you need to write something totally epic.

I'm not even going to try.

Instead, I will post an email chain that I exchanged with a friend of mine:

You will hand it over or I will send a waveform of hyperbolic ninjas at you.

I have one house in the real plane () and one on the Riemann Sphere, but the directions to that one might be a little complex.

Grand Marquis Joshua Sauerman KG, GCMG, LVO, KStJ

Oh, wait. That's the imaginary-valued name. The real one should just read "Josh Sauerman". I'd lose my head if it weren't screwed on.

Thank you, Grand Marquis Sauerman.

You are too funny, let's be friends. Some people collect bottle caps. I collect bipedal humor spigots.

Friends it is! Keep me around and your spigot will gush forth milk and honey at a rate of $v = - \frac{1}{4 \eta} \frac{\Delta P}{\Delta x} (R^2 - r^2)$.
