Well, my absence of a few short days turned into an absence of a couple of months. My computer troubles turned out to be a little more than I had thought, and finances were not exactly conducive to the problems I've had in the meanwhile.
However, I am now returned. I have less teeth than I did previously, more refrigerators, and more washing machine parts. Not a lot more artwork, only a couple of pieces, but that's only because I've been wrapping my head around medieval cooking, and wasting a good portion of my time watching the entirety of Babylon 5 (all five seasons, seven movies, and the spin-off series Crusade). I am currently trying to learn how to knit. This isn't terribly easy, I'm following how-to guides and they don't explain properly. I've yet to manage two stitches in a row.
