For starters, Happy 2009, y'all. I hope you went to some great parties and looked terrific in new holiday gifties. I'll be writing about my New Year's as soon as I finish with another dozen posts on Christmas :-)
To wit: Xmas went off as it often does. I indelicately forced my pinchy, neurotic need for perfection onto everyone around me. Which is why I imagine my parents are glad to be home again.
And, it seems, my ongoing computer problem is the transformer. Which is why I am currently writing in the weirdest and most convoluted fashion - holding the cord precariously while typing. Not fun.
But let's relive the recent past, shall we? Imagine everyone is very relaxed (especially me!). Note that I will torture you with - I mean generously share - closeups of some very cool gifts over the next few days...
