Princess Scientist’s Advent Calendar Day 1

It’s time to open the advent calendar again! This year we have both our classic old advent and a new chocolate advent. Considering technical difficulties, we are going short and simple this year. Or at least today.

Inspired as always by Grant Baciocco’s Advent Calendar Podcast!

Bigger apologies since the Obsolete Press deadline is today. *hides in a hole*

I’ve returned with a feedback show I recorded in September before my online world fell apart. I’ll have another one for you tomorrow!

I’m also doing NaNoWriMo, and am working on a blog post, but the site is down (as it is every Nov. 1) so that might not go up till tomorrow. Still! Wordcount for today needs to be 1667! Get to it!)
