I Sound Like a Drunken Chipmunk

February 20, 2014 by

October 31, 2012 by


I’m starting to get better. (Yay!) Which means it’s time to get back to work. (Um…) I’ve cleared away the backlog of admin tasks. (Bleh.) Which means it’s time to look at the writing. (Yay!) If only I can figure out exactly what I was doing when I got sick… (Um…) Okay. New plan:
