I know, I know, my hiatus has been about double what I thought it would be.  I’ve been working on recovering from the end of the semester, as well as working my way out of a deep depression.  Which is hard, but it happens.  (The most recent post in Hyperbole and a Half describes my […]

I finally got around to hooking up the Super Nintendo I bought before Christmas.  I know, I know, I should have hooked it up long before, but I’ve been way too busy lately.  I did some living room rearranging this past weekend, though, and figured, why not hook it up while I’m in the process […]
