Holiday madness

For some, the holiday season is just getting started. I've already been to four holiday events! Friday I got tapas and drinks with a few IMSA folks, Saturday was a formal dinner party with some college friends, Sunday was the big get-together for my dad's side of the family, and Monday we went over to see my cousins on my mom's side. Somewhere in there I managed to get a bunch of shopping done (largely in a big two-hour blitz on Saturday). Right now I've got a few moments of downtime as we prepare for Christmas Eve and then Christmas, both of which we're hosting. Boxing Day I head down to Urbana for the week-long party there. And then I need to head back to Galesburg and make a mad dash to finish as much course prep as I can before the term starts on the 5th.

"There have been parents who have considered wealth when choosing godparents in the hope that these tasks would be performed lavishly. Such ulterior motives need concern you only to the extent of resolving to work extra hard at teaching spirituality to a child from a morally disadvantaged home." --Miss Manners

Your Miss Manners quote has a duplicated 'a' near the end. Posted by kelly at 2:23pm on 24 Dec 2003
Indeed. Fixed (also at the source). Posted by blahedo at 4:43pm on 24 Dec 2003
