I figured out where the length is coming from, it's from the BlahBlahBlah() return statement. So that second point in my post is resolved. The first one's still open.
The answer to the (int) question comes about 40 pages later. It's called "casting." Since the Value property returns a decimal, and your BlahBlahBlah method needs an int to work property, doing (int)numericUpDown1.Value will convert the decimal value to an int so that your BlahBlahBlah method can use it.
