So,  I’ve  been  a  bad  blogger,  and haven’t posted  in almost a  month. In my defense, though,  I’ve  been super busy – last week  was  my school’s spring break and I went to Disney  World with my  chorus (I got to meet Mulan!),  lots of plans, etc.,  etc.  Also my keyboard  has been messing up,  so I can’t type very well at all. Excuses,  excuses,  I know,  but I should be back in action permanently now. So, for last week’s geeky news,  read ahead!
