I'm still alive--- just theoretically on vacation (which means I get to take my laptop out on the balcony and look longingly at the beach as I work). Vacation, it seems, means "less free time," especially this weekend, when three friends arrived to pose the temptation of actual fun.
Anyway, long story short, thanks to Theresa for doing all the blog work this week! I'll try and make it up later. :)
