Mine, as always, skip any sentence that just whines about not posting for a while and any post that is just a pointer to a cartoon or news item...

Happy 2009! They say it's an inch of new snow, but I could swear I shoveled more than that and it is still coming down. Successfully moved everything out of the hotel and put it away once it got home. We've weathered a small financial crisis caused by further pay cuts at $employer - I've cut down on my savings (though still contributing to the 401K) and we've tightened the belt a bit more. My maternal grandmother died peacefully in her sleep in Seattle on Sunday morning. Anyone know how to contact Kathy Mar et al while they are on the road? I don't usually talk much about the Pegasus Awards when I'm nominated. There are kindergartners squirming in their seats behaving better than some of the so-called "adults" in this thing - that includes both "conservatives" who are afraid that vocal contact with Obama will spread some sort of "Socialist Flu" as well as "liberals" who forget they had exactly the same rhetoric when George HW Bush set up his speech in 1991 ("The Department of Education should not be producing paid political advertising for the president, it should be helping us to produce smarter students," said Rep. Richard Gephardt, then the Democratic majority leader in the House of Representatives.") Thanks to everyone who voted for Stray Dog Man in the 2009 Pegasus Awards. Even if I am pretty much stuck in the hotel or the office of $customer for security reasons, I have gotten to go out and eat a couple of lunches with traditional food. Had to take a week off work since we now lose all unused vacation at the end of the year.
