Recipe for Holiday Cheer

1) Nail computer screen to ceiling
2) Grab someone kissable
3) Stand under screen
4) Hope nails hold
5) (optional) call ER/casualty/Notfall, depending on where you live

Have a great break, fellow bloglodytes. I hope to find you all refreshed and rarin' to write in 2010.

In the Deep Midwinter

Hope everyone's keeping well. My online writing class is nearly over, the drawing class too, and frankly, I'm glad. I've enjoyed them both, but the time for me and paper without third parties involved is coming. I can feel myself shrinking in like a snail. I am not a winter person, but when I go into hibernation like this, good things often come out of it in the spring. I'll still be around, still be checking all of your blogs, and hoping hoping hoping that 2010 will finally bring that post I've been wanting to make since I started to blog; the one where I tell everybody I've been published. In the meantime, have some winter cheer.

All Blogs Were Quiet

I've noticed lots of my fellow bloglodytes going quiet lately, including myself. There is the usual year-end hullaballoo, ill children (Middlekid is home ill now), ill selves and general lethargy brought on by winter cold and grey. On top of that, someone rang my doorbell about half an hour ago to let me know their shutting the water off because of a pipe break.
Here's a cybercookie from me and the wee ones for all of you, no matter where you are or what your faith. Extra cookies for anyone who is kind enough to pray to who/whatever they believe in that Middlekid doesn't start to barf before the water's back on.
