As Granny Weatherwax would say.

In case anybody was wondering where I've been ... sorry I fell off the site for a couple of months there.  Between the holiday of Shavuot, a dear friend's wedding, the death of a family friend, two conventions in two months (one of which I was performing at, and the other of which I was helping to run), and a handful of miscellaneous other things, I sort of ran out of spare brain for a little while.

I'm back!  (Hopefully!)  Have I missed anything crucial?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Of course there was pie. When isn't there pie?

    Who is my very most  favoritist Discworld character.  Because she knows that, when you're dealing with a particularly evil type of vampire, you just have to grip the blade, stand your ground, and deal with the wound later; who knows when there should be a Reckoning and when the lesson is enough; because she is not the Maiden, nor the Mother, but . . . the Other one, though nobody really likes to mention that fact.

    Welcome back!

      Given your username I am somehow unsurprised that she's your favorite.  :)

      (Well, and also given the fact that she is made of raw hammered awesome.)

        Thanks.  You've given me yet more to aspire to.

        And yes, 'raw hammered' awesome.  When the situation demands as-yet-unheard-of concentrations of Awesome, she clucks her tongue in irritation then reaches out into the Wherewithal for the right flavor of Stuff, hammers it into shape in the time it takes her to blink, then Puts It Out There in the world.  Which is changed.

        These incidents of Immediate Manifestation are sometimes wearing, but never worry.  If she hasn't shaken it off by the time she's walked home, she can pin the sign to her chest and take a ride, flying with the owlses or cozying up with the field mice living warm and dry in the well-stocked cat-free barn.

        (Ps:  Just making this up as I went along, but don't you think 'the Wherewithal' sounds like the place Ms W draws her juice from?)

        (And Ps again:  Thanks for sparking this moment of right-brain contemplation of Ms W; I've spent 2 long hard days researching into the Dark Side (where some truly crazy mofos live) and this interlude was very bracing.  Straightening my hat now, for my long walk home over The Chalk.)
