I come tonight to bear what I foresee as the last pod-based jpg (at least for a while). It is certainly not to be the last of my drawings, but I am to embark on a less time-guzzling task that contains more characters, as many have been sprinting from my memory unit by what seems to be the hundreds. In addition, I already am quasi-obligated to another time-guzzling task (and there's only room for one): purging the disutilities from what is supposed to be my social utility.

It epitomizes the "ghetto laptop" at the moment but, thanks be to God, it is operating.

To express my gratefulness (two weeks late), I come bearing a jpg of hanzi learned in ye olde times of July:
