Just a note


When I first started getting comments, I responded to them via e-mail or on the commenter’s blog. A few months ago, though, I decided I’d respond directly in the post, in hopes of spurring conversation. (Which, um, hasn’t happened. Yet!) Anyway, I just wanted to let those who have commented know that I am not ignoring you (and that I appreciate your comments).

Thus concludes my most boring post ever. (Hey, what do you mean this wasn’t my most boring post ever?)

I am not a big fan of New Year’s Eve. I’m just, in general, leery of things that are so hype-surrounded, plus there’s the added aspect of being reminded of how quickly time is passing and how much of it I’ve wasted playing Solitaire. (I swear I am not getting paid to type that–or any other!–word; I’ve just been seriously addicted to it lately.) And, frankly, is the fact that’s it’s January, in my humble opinion the least wonderful time of the year, cause for celebration? (Though I will rejoice at not having to see those cars-with-giant-bows ads for another eleven months.)

But, hey, I’m not a total New Year’s curmudgeon/Grinch/Scrooge: I do always enjoy saying, “See you next year!” even if I’ll see or talk to the person to whom I’m saying it in a few days.

“Wendy! You’re alive!”


This was jokingly said to me by a co-worker after I returned to work on Wednesday after I missed two days with Yet Another Cold. After I laughed, I decided it would be a rather apropos title for my next blog post, as I have not posted in quite some time. Indeed, since my last post, I have gained a year. But that’s a topic for another post…
