Jo: wow. Overseas. Big changes. You know you won't have to continue to watch Farve play for the Vikings soon right?
Lofty: Congrats on the job prospect.
Sparkle: I'm *so* not a suede person. Then again, I don't live in the desert southwest either. But don't take my advice: both pair of my leather danskos (brown and black) were in my office on Friday night when I got dressed to go to see the Nutcracker. So I wore my slip on LLBean boots/sorel type boots. With my dress pants. It was either that or running shoes. I also may have safety pinned up the hem of my dress pants. Can you tell how long it has been since I've been someplace nice?
Jaygee: New house: nice. Kids look happy too!
Ya'll I made some serious tasty and seriously beautiful cardamom bread for St Lucia Day (tomorrow). Mostly I wanted to make the bread and having a deadline is good.
We missed the blizzard. That's good. I had some serious stuff to get done. Most of it is done.
Off to grade some terrible term papers. Terrible. Most of us could have written these babies in about 8th grade. Not as a senior in college. I hope none of them ask me for a recommendation.
