I had a pretty good update I started hacking out in MS Word at the beginning of the week; it had the makings of a first class rant (my ranting does get raves, I'm told). Anyhow, I got twisted up in my logic and ended up losing the head of steam I had carefully built up. It's saved, and will make an appearance at some point. Unfortunately it won't be the stream of consciousness work that I was hoping for.
Kudos to edieraye for reminding me of a wonderful memory from a few years back.
Take care, and if I don't post before we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
