I've bought a house and I'm in the throes of remodelling and quitting my job and catching up on the five years of life that was passing me by while I was working too hard. So I'm still around...just not every day.


Level 1 noders whose nodes I enjoy (or at least, noders who were level one when I began to enjoy them):
Honey | cooling1018 | Zarmvenius | my.raindance | Smappdi | nosfentor | Peace Frog | morganlight | gobbet

what does an in-progress writeup look like? The following was an early draft of lacquer, before I decided that I really don't know enough about japanese culture to write intelligently about an art so deeply intertwined with it.
While natural lacquer can be found finishing Vietnamese tableware and Russian boxes, lacquer is best-known for its use in traditional Japanese art -- so much so that japanned is synonomous with lacquered.

Lacquerware in Japan dates back to at least the Fifteenth Century, when ...

Now three different styles of lacquerware comprise three of the ten nationally designated traditional arts of Japan.

Traditionally, lacquer is made from the sap of a laquer tree.


One of the reasons that I'm an unordered-list-addict is that I have this fantasy that it helps me keep things organized. Things like my bookmarks.
