Howdy! It's been a long while since I posted, but I'm still out there - just been spending more time knitting, less time watching the news. If you've been missing the news, I can update you real quick like: the war's still going (not well), the republicans in power are still evil (but more of the mainstream media is noticing), and there were a few big ass natural disasters (but this time in our country). Al Franken, my hero, has a new book out, and it's AWESOME. Word from a muther.
