Hobbies? What hobbies? <whistles innocently>

I meant to post last night, but I was more interested in finishing my book. I've been doing pretty much nothing but read these past two days. I found a new series that I simply adore. (Unfortunately, it only has three volumes so far, which means only one left to read. ;_;) It kind of reminds me a lot of the Nightrunner series, though the plot and setting are quite different.

Aside from reading, I tried making satsuma imo (Japanese sweet potato) stew. That turned out quite well.

I also ordered some software: one set of Japanese fonts (the drool got the better of me) and one Japanese calligraphy program. I've been wanting a calligraphy program since I saw one (possibly this same one) last winter with the rest of the New Year postcard supplies. I bought a book several months back about Japanese sumi-e painting, but I haven't quite broken down and bought all the brushes, ink, and paper. I figure this is a good compromise.
