It always takes me a little bit of time to rebalance when D leaves - it's definitely better having him around. CA stops feeling like home when he goes.
Anyhoo, I pre-posted the next century of posts, so we're well stocked up there.
Plus, I started teaching myself Illustraitor using the free demos over at Lynda, a site that contains tutorials on all kinds of graphic/web design programs that you will have the free run of, if you care to pay $25 dollars a month. EWK, this may be something for you.

Will you look at that? I'm speechless. That, my friends, is a gigantic cardigan/sweatercoat and...snowboarding pants. I know what I'm wearing to work tomorrow. :)

Those are cocoons.
The necklaces are being devoured.
Interesting. Much of my jewelry looks similar. Old is the new new!
Hmm, yes. See, proud parents? Once I graduate, I will know how to do this too. My second graduation. I've already become an Astrophysicist. Next step (as we all knew was coming) is Desperate Artist.
