well actually I've just been preoccupied with trying to find work/funding that I haven't had the time or attention span for livejournal for the past couple of days, and you all write so prolifically that I am now 160 posts behind.
I will try to catch up tonight, but I can't promise I'll read anything. if there was something you particularly wanted me to see, comment here with a link and I will suspend my catching up long enough to read you. don't be shy: "look at me!" is totally ok in my book.
