Hey Lady, I've been wondering where you've been so I'm very happy for a new post from you!

I knew you were contemplating a move to Texas, but didn't realize you made a failed attempt. Perhaps you didn't put all of that out there eh?

Wow, moving yourself into an apartment with zero help is a HUGE accomplishment. The sense of satisfaction and empowerment must have been (and still be) extreme! And I was impressed with your the effort you put into getting your Christmas tree!

I really must check into your favorite programs because I am not familiar with any of them except for Wipeout (which I love--aren't you excited for Winter Wipeout next week?!).

Now when you save you didn't get Divine guidance what are you saying? You always seem so spiritually minded to me, so it seems strange that you lacked guidance.

I haven't seen the pajama jeans before, but I could get behind a concept like that.

P.S. The word on the street is that a certain someone sent a Chocolate Babka to two certain someones...that's mighty nice of you. Also, we will be sad to see our fabulous Boston Museum of Fine Art "Reading Woman" calendar year come to an end.

Heh, I saw pajama jeans before you!

I have to say, these year retrospectives just make me feel kind of sad. I don't think I'll be doing this one!

Hope 2011 is a GREAT year for you.

i'll buy the pajama jeans if you will. I need to fit in with all the classy people in Delta.

I've been trying to decide if iPods are worth all the hype. Are they? I haven't bought one because I don't know if I'd use it.

you will use it, trust me.
