Before I get to all that...
I posted new stuff (for the first time in ages) at Projectile Reviews.
I'm adding these MOST lovely gifts from Amanda and Heather to my blog for 1) posterity 2) so I can look at them conveniently whenever I want.
From Heather the most sweetest wonderful blog goddess EVER!
From Amanda that hit the nail RIGHT on the HEAD! I should spread this one around to all my grad school peeps.
