i promise, i haven't gone away. i'm just in that awkward spot where i was posting every day for over a year, and then i took a "short break" that turned into a longer break, because i started worrying that i wouldn't post something good enough. heh, i suck. anyhow, i'll get it back into gear soon, because a couple of you have asked about my well-being, and i suppose i have some stuff to talk about. for now, though, i'm just planted on the couch watching inauguration footage (and, let's be honest, american idol). whee!
