We Interrupt Your Irregularly Scheduled Programming to Bring You This Very Important Message

By Rebecca Kreston | June 26, 2012 5:18 pm

Pardon my silence on Body Horrors this past month or so. I’m currently studying for the MCAT, applying to medical and graduate school, and planning a wedding. I know, I know – you’re deeply envious of my summer to-do list. If only we were all this lucky, hmm?

I expect to resume blogging by the end of this summer but I may squeeze out an article before then. In the meantime, you can stare at this hypnotic GIF until I return.

See you soon!

    Re: hypnotic GIF…
    Televisions used to do that between midnight and about 6:00am when there was no round the clock programming. It was, oddly, called “snow.” Anyone else remember that, or am I the only old fart reading this blog.
