So I'm back from Virginia. Good weekend. I forgot how much I love that place, how much I enjoy being there... the company helps a bit too. ^_^ Anyways, back to life.

O god so much work!!! Seriously, this week/month is crrrazy, and not in the Gnarls Barkely way. Even Danger Mouse would have a hard time making this set of sad songs better. Let's just say the semester is coming to a head, and rather more quickly and violently than I'd like.

In other news, I can't seem to get the music from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog out of my head. If you've ever heard of Buffy, Angel or Firefly, or have a fine appreciation for anything, go check it out. It's making it difficult to concentrate on my work or listen to music or really function in life when all I can hear, all the time, is this musical.

Still, Mosaic Monday!

If any of you follow Brain Spew, you may recognize this particular theme; Martin challenged me to draw something along the lines of 'bomb with tree growing out of it'. My first attempt was a big tree, and then I remembered the bomb and put it on top, which was a different image, but still sort of cool. This is the second one I tried, and I went after a seedling feel that I liked on an earlier drawing. I think it turned out alright. It's no good as a stencil, but it still looks neat. Here's the "proof of concept" so to speak.
