I left for 23 days, and a bunch of famous people started passing away:
Billy Mays - June 28
Steve McNair - July 4
Robert McNamara - July 6
Dumbledore - July 15
Walter Cronkite - July 17
This doesn't even take into account Michael Jackson, who missed the list by a day.
Though not a celebrity, a special mention goes to my motivation, which suffered a slow and painful death over the last three weeks. Today is my first day back at work. I'm so screwed.
