Ready or Not…

Like it or not, the holidays are at our throats. As if you need a reminder, the holiday commercials are already sounding both strident and plaintive: “please please please buy our stuff!”

This week begins the short work week before Thanksgiving; I’ll only be working two days this week — today and tomorrow — before my parents arrive to see my new place and offer much-appreciated advice and help in decorating (I missed that part in the Radical Homosexual Agenda training). We’ve got some things planned, such as a tour of the Lowe Art Gallery at the University of Miami and Fairchild Tropical Gardens, and lunch with friends.

This means that blogging on my part may be a touch sporadic over the next week, but in a way, it’s kind of nice to give up a little bit of on-line time to spend it with friends and family.
