wow, i kind of fell off the face of the earth again, didn't i? it's been over a month since i posted about v-dog, and since then we've had a major shipping snafu, a majorly awesome compensation package for that shipping snafu, maia's almost done with her first bag, and… we moved to a totally different house! heh. i buried the lead a little. anyway, things have been really hectic around here but i'm hoping/trying to settle down over the next couple of weeks. spring semester starts next week and i'm in the midst of prepping a brand new grad seminar, but once that feels under control i think i can start doing fun stuff again. more soon.
