Hello, poor forgotten blog. I've returned from the vacation world of Missouri to a desk full of "while you were out"s and a laptop I'm going to steal for the Rotunda. There's still no internet at home, as our month of fighting with ATT resulted in their service actually not being available in our area. I'll just call that as a "contrary to previous information" and leave the story there.
It's been a full week since I last bit off my fingernails, so that's the default resolution for this year. (Perhaps also to not buy new shoes everytime I see a pair I like.)
And, now I'll end with a quote from stage combat rehearsal: "Never point the mace at a face. It rhymes, so don't do it."
