Question: I was upset to see readers giving you a hard time about taking the holiday off in last week's "Ask Ausiello." I just hope it was their way of showing you that they appreciate you. Of course, a "Hey, I missed your column, hope you had a nice Christmas" would have sounded a lot better. Keep up the good work. — Angie

Ausiello: As I learned in high school, sticks and stones may break my bones but names will scar me for life. So, although I will be in Los Angeles covering the Golden Globes and the TCA press tour all next week, there will be a fresh installment of "Ask Ausiello" next Wednesday — even if it kills me.
