So that data did end up getting fully recovered after all, huzzah! Soup came out pretty well, should be pretty well saturated with essential nutrients for the next little while. Still no resolution of ongoing extreme emotional/identity crisis. Thanks for caring!

Need to get started on some more collaborative art projects, nothing motivates like fear of others.
