Ah, who doesn’t love a reinstall, eh? (You can all put down your hands now.)

Obviously my template got eaten in the process and I’ll have to reinstall my tagline switcher code, but I was gonna change the template soon anyhow. The default’s green, so we’ll just pretend I did it for Christmas, shall we?

Christmas weirdness

In case you’re wondering, you can get nativity sets made out of anything.

I have to go to the grocery on my way home. I think I suddenly need to pick up s’mores fixins.

Which leads me to wonder: What other weird nativity sets do they sell? Hmm. I think I need to use my Google fu to find some other oddness.

Update: I haven’t found any other strange nativity sets, but I did find these find Book of Mormon action figures. Check it out — The Brother of Jarod (doesn’t the poor guy even get his own name?) comes with glow-in-the-dark stones. Who can resist that kind of fun?

How long?

Holy cats. Today is my 6th anniversary at my job.

Got a nice little gift certificate to a local restaurant for it. Aww. (So if you’re doing the math at home, 6 yrs of my life = 1 free lunch. Or something like that.) (Ooh, wait — I think 6 years also equals 100% vesting for my 401k matching funds, too. Sweet!)

The severed head is blocking the oatmeal shot!

Ok, all. Here are the Prague photos so far. These are all of my digitals and the first roll of film. More film images will come later, if’n you’re interested. Enjoy.

Almost there.

Prague photos coming Wednesday. Thanks to the magic that is the internet, I only had to rearrange my online album twice. (*grumble*)

So it’s late now and I want to go home, but I promise pix are coming tomorrow. Hooray! And of course, there will be more later when I get the last two rolls of film back and upload those images. (And if Christyl ever gets hers online, there will be those, too. Aren’t we just the little shutterbugs.)

Busy, busy, busy

What I hate most about getting back from vacation: The insanity of the days following my return, in which I have to try to catch up on everything that’s happened during the time I was gone, get caught up with where I’m supposed to be now and try to get anything else done, all while fighting jet-lag. (My internal clock does not reset easily, so two changes to it in a short period of time really kills me for weeks & weeks after the trip.)

Suffice it to say I’m a little frazzled right now, so there probably won’t be any updates this week. Prague trip info and photos won’t be posted until next week. Sorry. I just don’t have time for the blogging this week.

Oddly enough, as most everyone else goes into the usual holiday frenzy, I find that my life will actually be slowing down a bit during the rest of this month, which means I can be a good blog mommy again. Hooray! Just not this week. :-)
