Hey, thanks for the goodie! I love sci-fi but I've always been afraid to look at Dr. Who because I think I'd probably become addicted to it. I just might have to take the plunge, though. Thanks for the info about starting with the later eps, I'm gonna meander on over to Netflix and see what's up.

I showed your incredibly adorable chibis to my girls and now Little One is obsessed with finding the cutest Snape chibi ever drawn. My computer memory is in danger of being filled with an inhumane level of adorableness.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I think that one of the good things of when I went to school (way back when) is that we were still expected to take Home Ec. My mom was pretty cool about cooking and taught me a lot, but taking Home Ec. kind of solidified a lot of things for me.

The thing with cooking from scratch is don't be intimidated, be willing to throw things away if it's awful, and start off with fewer ingredients, especially add-ins. My husband ruined more food because he would just keep adding things and the flavors got muddled. We won't even MENTION the time he put dumplings in Beans because the memory is just too, too horrific! emoticon

Remember: minimum is best, and do keep trying! emoticon

Of course I won't tell you about my sewing abilities emoticon

Ooooh. Cookie shame. That sounds like a torture so heinous that it may be against several articles of war conduct.

Thanks for your support. I do appreciate it. I keep reminding myself that one bad choice (or a series of bad choices over the course of 3 days) does not undo everything I've accomplished. But I don't usually believe my own pep talks. Hearing it from someone else helps a lot more.
