I'm right here. On the blog.
Nothing is (seriously*) wrong with me.
*i.e., beyond the usual.
**and yes, I am touched by all y'all's concern for my well being. Thank you for that.

what, you want to properly articulate a thought? jeez.
Blog interactions are fundamentally different from Twitter interactions. I am not sure @BanditoKat can take your absence much longer.
Let's not get all crazee now, JT.
Why fundamentally different boehningLab? I'm not seeing that.
Hang in there DM. Nothing lasts forever (whatever is it that is bothering you). I suspect, though, that you're just kidding (as usual).
Here, a nice laugh somebody sent me
You're missed some on twitter, sure. More that I was when I bailed for a bit. Twitter is a much bigger time suck than a blog, and offers a lot more downside compared to the upside. (Though the upside is higher too, at least for me... you know... BB.)
C'mon DM!!. Not having a grant renewed is not the end of the world. I haven't had one for 4 years now and I haven't died yet. Doing a lot of volunteer work and not unhappy at all.
Just revise and resubmit!!!!. What's the problem f****r!!!. Hahahaha
So. Lonely. Maybe we can set up an instant messenger thing so we can talk constantly. What's your last name, Ted?
Perhaps too much time on the Twitter gave DM a case of cat scratch fever. I think there's a topical ointment for that.
I thought it was all about me. My last tweet to you is stuck at the top of your twitter feed.
Now if someone could check on Comradde PP we would all rest assured that both mommy and daddy are OK.
Twitter is so not cool anymore anyway. Even snapchat has peaked.
Mikka, which is whi... never mind.
did you forget your password again?
did you try password123?
Ha - always figured it would be Kaczynski
Geez, make me save another url to my favorites! So much effin' work!
I was going to guess Cruz
DM just sort of the glue that connects a pretty big community. It's still there, but not same without the DM dynamo, or so it might appear. Otherwise the DM/Eisen ratio gets skewed.
Glad that there are DM thoughts to take a look at here on the blog. There is a noticeable vacuum on twitter where your tweets and retweets used to be.
"When do I get to that stage where my lab is operated entirely by oppressed trainees who are totally doing the PI job in all ways but name and I get to sit back, eat bonbons and watch my h-index rise? " From DM, March 24, 2015.
DM, you belong to the Decent Class. Another reason to be the happiest.
I miss yr tweets. Though I am secretly pleased that your last one was to me. 😉
Yeah, my Twitter world is very different without you there.
