I am existent. I have slightly more existence than a breadbox, and slightly less existence than a truck. /Coupling-Jeff-Murdoch

I hereby state an early New Year's Resolution, that I will update these much more often than I have been. Having only three classes rather than four next semester should help quite a bit.

Sorry that I sort of disappeared during December, but I did end up killing my first semester of grad school with fire. Even the design-y artistic things that freaked me out, and writing papers for the first time in three years. The thing they never tell you about library science reading is how funny it is. Lots of stealth snark about very nerdy things.

Plus, pre-Christmas exams/due-dates are the best thing ever. I can spend a near-month working and bothering the internet and writing fic, and *then* back into the breach, dear friends.

She Who Is Glorious And Should Be Worshipped, Miss Rachel Maddow, did three live shows from the 92Y in NYC the week before Christmas. And since I was done on the 20th, I went to see the first one. She was amazing, as were [personal profile] aliya , [personal profile] jesidres , and [personal profile] willwrite_fortea , who are delightful and  bravely put up with my weirdness/squee throughout dinner and the show.

Went up to MA for the holidays, saw the Grandrents and a lot of family, including my best-beloved [livejournal.com profile] phantomcranefly . We all watched the Doctor Who Christmas Special together on Christmas night, and it was as nerdy and as glorious as one might expect. A trip to the Christmas Revels happened DESPITE Winter Snowpocalypse 2010, and much pagan ritual and singing were had.

And now the Mom and the FG and I are spending our usual New Year's decompression week at the Old Homestead. There are tentative plans to go see The King's Speech tomorrow.

Also? White Collar comes back in three weeks! EEEEEE. And thanks to [livejournal.com profile] monkeyonthelam , I have a new awesome show, Castle, to squee about. With a pompous but nerdy and awesome Nathan Fillion, and a leading lady who brings the snark, and a work family who is nearing equal in my estimation to the BAU. What can I say, I'm hooked.

I'm also well  into the second season of The Man From UNCLE, which....it is very hard to describe my feelings for this show. I'm not usually one for strong shipping, especially anything that's not supported in canon. But there's a first time for everything, so Illya and Napoleon have made me into a confirmed slasher.  And yeah, lots of humour and subtle spy-guy angst and "only alive on the edge of death" stuff too.

Spring semester starts the 18th, and getting through this *first* semester has helped a whole lot. I have a few shifts at my job, but I think the next demi-month or so will be spent being mostly useless and/or writing things.

Welcome Yule, Love, and Happy Holidays, all.

I'm back. So sorry, didn't get y'all any presents. :)  The best stuff I got- that is to say, time with my family- sadly non-transferable.

You can't have my Grand'rents. They're MINE. MINE ALL MINE. (I was always not that great at sharing in kindergarten.)

BOSTON TRIP! Well, sort of. Avatar and Doctor Who spoilers within )

Hmmmm. Probably should go do something useful now? ....Nah. VACATION TIEM.

The Snowpocalypse has been overcome. We have a tree, a real tree, needles and all. And we shovled out from under the Blizzard of Aught-Nine. And made a sinful amount of Christmas cookies.

*is feeling v.v. festive right now*

Today's plan was to have been, bus up to the nursery one town over, pick out our Christmas tree, and convince them (as always) to truck it back to our driveway.

*looks out window*

Yeah, not today. They're predicting at least a foot of snow from NoVa, through the Delaware Valley, up to NYC. Wind chill out there: 10 degrees. Not good for anybody, but especially us public-transit-taking folk.

Maybe tomorrow, if it dies down enough, but unlikely. Possible plan B: Artificial tree from Sears or Penney's? (I have insisted, if this happens, that it is to be proper Charlie Brown Christmas Pink. Damn straight.) But there will still be Christmas Cookie Making, so all is not lost.
