so about my unscheduled absence: we lost internet access for four days, thanks to a cut and frayed outdoor cable that was supposed to have been safely buried by the cable company oh, about two point five years ago. not that i'm complaining. they fixed me back up, so we are bff's again.
incidentally, losing internet is like functioning with only half a brain: suddenly the wealth of information normally available within a few clicks is now lost in the swirling ether. stuff like what's the shortest route to the airport, or what will the weather be like this weekend, or exactly how many children is angelina jolie planning on having--you know, the vital knowledge of daily survival. how on earth did our parents manage, i ask you. okay, right. they had a life.
speaking of parents, mine arrived here safely yesterday morning via the infamous combination red-eye flights from oahu to the midwest. it's good to have them close for these few weeks.
i shall likely be scarce for a while here, but i will be sure to pop in with the promised softie doll tutorial, um, soonish.
i hope you all are experiencing equally full and rich lives this week. :) toodles for now.
