Yes, I've been quiet for a while. Many, many things to do at work, including that enormously entertaining pursuit — justifying your existence. Not mine, specifically, but the existence of our course. We'd have much less difficulty with management if we taught alchemy rather than … yanno … science. We'd be better off if we ditched our units in microbiology, biochemistry and genetics and replaced them with Amulets 101, Pure and Applied Lycanthropy and Consulting Entrails for Fun and Profit. I'm sure several universities have done that already.
I'm off to cast the runes.
