Just to check in--still working on a borrowed computer, as internet is not fixed yet. Woe. And while all your congratulations were lovely (thank you so much!), I should clarify that it was just the drafting I finished (which I considered to be the hard part and the worst of it). We're still copyediting. Oh, and also, I have a fifteen-page paper to write in about a week and a half or so unless I want my incomplete to turn to a fail. So... whee.

I would like to catch up on Lost recaps, but I have no idea when I'll be able to do that. Also, my tape with the Sayid, Kate, and Exodus part 1 episodes got taped over (VARLETS!). So... that'll be interesting.

Have had a steady stream of BPAL samples coming in secondhand... I'd write you reviews, but the copyediting alone is pretty time-consuming at the moment. Suffice it to say that I already ordered a 10 ml of Tamora, and my soul craves full-size bottles of Siren, Wolf's Heart, Titania, Glitter, and Swank. I also ordered, in addition to more imps than I really care to admit, LE bottles of Shub-Niggurath and Arkham Revisited just before they were discontinued. The new Carnaval Noir LEs are up at the main site, but... I don't know about those. I hear Midway smells astonishingly like slightly stale carnival food, and people who like that sort of thing are ecstatic about it. I'm... not so much. Maybe Gypsy Queen.

Have a whole pile of DVDs that have accumulated over the last six months (since my birthday in December), but I have no idea when I'll have time to start watching them. Sister Girl took the plastic wrap off for me and counted something like seventeen. Also a giant pile of books (since same), but no idea on those, either.

(Meanwhile: I leave you people alone for a few weeks, and Tom Cruise decides to go batshit. Clearly, I never should have left him alone like that.)

Oh! The Lovely Emily has moved home! For good! Huzzah!
