Happy Holidays

Wishing everyone a warm and fuzzy holiday season...


This year I'm very much on the poor side of things, and I've had to really downsize on who gets presents this year (immediate family only, sorry everyone else) and the type of presents they're getting (homemade! free samples!). And I'm not really done with one of my biggest homemade presents yet (for my Mother).

So guess who'll be up late tonight painting, gluing, and wrapping? I wonder if someone will take pity on me and leave me cookies and milk tonight. Hmm...

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the end of this year and the beginning of a new one. I'm optimistic it will be a great year, with projects completed, goals met, new opportunities, and deepened perspectives. And yeah, it's supposedly the end of the Long Count, and perhaps the end of the world, but that's not really true. An ending, whether happy or sad, is just another beginning... or, as Schmendrick the Magician would say, "There are no happy endings, because nothing ends."

GOODBYE 2011....

...WELCOME 2012!


  1. Super-mega-extra points for quoting Schmendrick!


  2. I hope this is your best year EVAH!!!!!

  3. SAMI: Schmendrick knows his stuff. Seriously. Yay for bonus points!

    ANITA: Thanks! I hope 2012 is another year in which you are CURSED WITH AWESOME. :)
