Not much to show for it.
Christmas at the ballet.

This site is a mess. I don't even know what happened to my blogroll which is supposed to be over there on the left. Sure, half the blogs I had listed have gone private or abandoned in the past two years since I checked them, but there were some gems in there!
Two days ago, I visited the blogroll site and found they'd been hacked by some web graffitist who either likes Allah a whole lot, or wants people to think he does. The next day, they were back online, but they disavowed all knowledge of my account. And now my blogroll links have disappeared. Fer pete's sake.
I suppose I should redesign cluttered life, assuming I am actually going to keep up with it. And I will! I'll get right on it... right after I finish designing a library web site and portal for a final project, oh and all these pesky papers and research assignments. And maybe after I finish the latest David Sedaris (I'm currently #28 on the library's waiting list).
Speaking of David Sedaris, I discovered a new author I like a whole lot. Haven Kimmel. She's sort of like a small town, heterosexual Sedaris in her writing.
Wedged between the autobiographies of various politicians and faded entertainers at the used book store, I found A Girl Named Zippy and She Got Up Off the Couch. Really fun and funny writing with some life lessons learned and poignant stories sprinkled throughout. I heartily recommend them to those who like that sort of thing.
