Howdy all, it's been a while but it's finally time to poke my wee head into the blogosphere. Details above (with festive photos) but in summary: I survived bhroncitis and the threats of the death labia, getting to leave my kitchen job without getting fired. Had a great Christmas and New Year and turned 30! My folks got me a laptop, which goes some way to explaining my blogging absence. All my blog stuff was on my desktop PC which seemed to get jealous from the amount of time I was spending in bed with my laptop watching and burning DVDs and listening to podcasts. So it took a while to slowly coax my old stand by desktop PC into cooperating by trying to ignore my brassy tart of of a black, sleek and fast laptop. Still feel like a cheating boyfriend when I watch Justice League: Unlimited on the laptop after all the happy hours I spent watching it on the desktop.
