Obvious repost – of myself

Hey everyone.  I’ve managed to get some hours of work in the two weeks – from my parents.  Both jobs involve sitting for long hours in front of the computer, which does not bode well for my thesis, let alone my blog.  So I do have quite a few pictures lying around, waiting to be hussied up and stuck on this page, but they are going to have to wait until I have enough patience to sit out and think how best to entertain the almost twenty people I have somehow duped into following me.

And thanks for coming by!
