Really, I'm ok. Still kicking and all. Thought I'd let ya know. Yes, I saw the messages - I just cleared out 100 that dated back as far as October. I guess I've been a bit distracted (and that may also be an underestimate).
Want to know why I've been absent? Well, let's see...
I had to get a new computer, so I've had to transition everything and I've divided work from play so I don't always have everything that I find I need.
We adopted a cat from the shelter, and he's a curious bundle of energy
I wrote a 2000 word article on the origin of HIV for the magazine of a Chicago area HIV awareness organization
I've been writing articles and developing titles on health advances, basic anatomy topics to fill in the channel gaps, and working on fact checking tasks, etc....

Planning family visits for the Spring (it's been a looooong Winter!)
I took some free time to myself and worked my way through Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 (both more than once!), Dragon Age: Origins (and Awakenings and DLC), and Dragon Age 2 on the Xbox after Fallout New Vegas pissed me off (game blocking glitch after 40 hours of play!! arrrgh)
See, Alicia's been geeking out.
