Glenn's back.

With 10 posts up before 9 a.m., so you won't fail to understand what it means for Glenn to be back. Why I remember how I felt yesterday at 8 a.m., thinking, damn, I need to make this thing look like it's going. What is worthy? What is pithy? What is pithy and worthy enough to tell 250,000 people?

But, of course, I'm immensely grateful for the opportunity to twirl around on the big stage for a week — and also for the nice feeling of being trusted with it. It's quite a responsibility and a complicated task: How can you be yourself but also fit into that other environment? It's not only that there it's a huge readership (and it doesn't exist because of interest in what I have to say). It's also that it involves group blogging, and — terrific as Megan McArdle and Michael Totten are — I'm used to controlling the whole structure of the front page.

So much as I love the chance to be Instapundit, which I've done a few times over the years, I'm also always happy to get back to being just Althouse. Among many benefits of things getting back to normal: I can read Glenn again.

You were super-funny when you linked to that article about the G-spot. I laughed and laughed.

Last night, I had a dream that you had a small career in pop music on the side. Other peoples' dreams: so boring. So I won't go into it. The music wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. There was a sense you'd given up artistic control over your career. You had a song called "Free" (ostensibly about freedom), and Sarah Silverman did a mildly obscene satire of the video.

Very slightly apropos of the adieu-to-Instapundit-for-now.

Thanks, chuck. That's pretty cool. As Bob Dylan said "I'll let you be in my dream if I can be in yours."

I think I'm going to be sick.

Ooh, bonus! Doyle's gonna be sick! Sick..er, I guess.

I thought you were a fun addition to Instapundit.

"...I can read Glenn again."

Aw, gawrsh, that's awful nice of you, especially considering all the times we haven't gotten on...oh, wait a minute...

Never mind.
