Before we’re all off to face our various dragons over Christmas, I want to extend to everyone warm thoughts and wishes. Oh, and a great big group hug. I just love those, which is ironic because I don’t particularly like insincere touching. Maybe I finally figured out that you just shouldn’t turn down a hug, because you never know when you might need it.

Wishing you all joy, egg nog, hugs and hope. And may 2009 be way the hell better than 2008, for all of us.
