My blog has had an inexplicably high number of hits today. According to my dashboard stats, it’s some sort of record. And I have no idea why (if anyone knows of any high-traffic outside links that are coming here, I’d be very curious to find out). Strangely enough, the top post appears to be my Macaroni Soup post from last spring. I wonder whether I should be excited, or concerned? (At the very least, I’m flattered that people are reading my stuff today).
Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled content . . .

I actually have a lot of non-school-related loose ends to finish up before I leave (in addition to writing my 20 pager that’s due Monday – the draft of which I haven’t yet touched).
After having stayed up most of the night and worked right up to the deadline for the 10 pager I had due Wednesday, I took Thursday “off” (aka dedicated it to loose ends). Finished up and mailed some Christmas cards. Began a business letter that I need to email off by Monday. Worked on roommate gifts.
Here’s a little in-progress shot of what I’m working on:
Oh, yes – this portion of my desk seems a little messy, you say?
Ahhh. Well, let’s zoom out a little:
Yea. Never say my desk is “messy” until you’ve seen it in full-swing disaster mode. Be thankful. I’m only showing you the left hand side. The other side is even worse.
I apologize if your eyes are now burning from the sheer entropy of it all.
Here’s a slightly cleaner image (literally) to make up for it:
Special present for a special person (to be mailed today). A poet/artist friend of mine, who’s back in California. Simple satin bows and crisp, beautiful paper make me smile, and I hope it will make her do the same. 🙂
