For S. L. Viehl fans

Check out today's blog entry.

Either she's brilliant or schizophrenic. Since I'm told that Lithium interfers with creativity, I'm sure it's the former. I had to laugh; I've had similar experiences but not to this extent.

I think I want to be like this when I grow up, but I suspect it's not without its complications!

It was in my e-mail all along.

We've got family in town, so if I'm not back for a few days, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

Head banging

The good kind: Trans-Siberian Orchestra's newest release, "The Lost Christmas Eve." By now hopefully you've seen the video of the Christmas lights synchronized to "Wizards In Winter," which is the 4th track on the new CD. I saw the video (which I can't find now, or I'd link it here; go to the website and you can hear a clip), and it became my mission to find the CD with that song. Eric gets the prize--he bought the new one plus three or four others. "Wizards In Winter" is my favorite, but most of the others are good, too.

The bad kind: The Freshman year of high school. It's harder from the parental end. Trust me on this. We've all had a 'come to Jesus' year, and I haven't talked to teachers on such a regular basis since I worked with them. No doubt his teachers will be happy when summer comes because they won't have me ambushing them during their conference periods! It's very frustrating, and it's going to be a LONG Christmas break...
