Kidding! I got swamped with a bunch of projects and then had a lovely family Christmas at Aunt Pat's in serene, suburban Pennsylvania, where I averaged six cookies per hour and successfully navigated the byzantine channels necessary to buy booze in that state.

I did not however catch fire whilst setting foot inside the Lutheran church on Christmas Eve, nor did I confuse show tune lyrics for hymns.

My new mantra is "If you have to squint to like it, don't buy it." Also, new concept: Solids. Almost every pattern in the universe makes my eyes hurt lately!
What are yours?
