Word of the Day

Banshee (noun) [BAN-shee]

1. (as in Irish folklore) a female spirit whose mournful wailing warns of an impending death in the family: "What sounds like the shrieking of a banshee is just Gloria singing in the shower."

On another, completely different note, I got bored of the old colors and banner so I thought "hey, a new year deserves a new color scheme."  I stayed up much later than I should have and took time away from the homework I should've been doing to put together the current banner.  I'm happy with it, though.  The paintings on the ends are things I did for my 2D Design class last semester and, of course, I have yarn in the middle . . .
