I'm sure it's been said before plenty of times, but blog is a stupid word. It makes me think of a small creature that is made out of mud or slime or something, except that would be way cooler than what a blog actually is. Oh well, so be it. I am presently convincing myself that I am doing this for me alone; that I am not so conceited as to actually think that other folks will give a hoot in hell what I think on a daily, or let's be honest it'll probably be more like monthly, basis. So. Hello me. It's the longest night of the year. Probably I'll do some drinking, gift making and sledding. Sounds like a plan.
