for some reason, your blog is not easy to read in my RSS reader. Tobe apparently has similar problems. I don't know if there's something you can do about it, but I thought I'd mention it.
Meanwhile, I've found this to be the most enjoyable way to read your blog :P
Merry Christmas, a happy New Year, good luck with your work, and keep on blogging,
P.S. See you next Tuesday at Johnny's maybe?
