'Tis the season

Used to think Irwin's (my friendly neighborhood coffee shop) didn't have wireless internet, but it turns out my PowerBook couldn't pick it up. Go, iBook, go!

We don't need to buy into them wholeheartedly, just enough to add some spice. We all want to be heroes, each of our various stripes.

No idea what to do with my social calendar until I leave for Iowa. I'm unusually swamped, with good things of course, and wondering when I'll rest and where I'll fit in others who are important to me. The next week looks like this:A little nutty.
