Happy New Year!

  • Hello there, invisible friends in the computer!  Happy new year to one and all.
  • Oh, the posts I have started in my head and never finished.  Like the one on girls, science, and Curious Girl's birthday party (last May!). Or the one on adoption and school and genetics. It's never too late, right?
  • I'm going to join the Adoption Reading Challenge, hosted by Jenna. I wonder if it will be cheating to include Scott Simon's memoir, which I actually read, and loathed, in December.  I have a review post started in my head on that one.
  • I'm loving the idea of a theme for 2011, rather than a resolution.  I'm toying with a combination of openness or generosity, as I want to do something to counter a kind of weary grumpiness that crept into my daily routines as the fall semester ended.  I am very taken with Chookooloonk's presentation of badassery, though. Doesn't that just make you want to have a badass year?
  • More to come, in the new year.  Figuring out writing time is on my list of things to do.

Happy New Year to you, too! I also like the idea of theme. So smart, that.

And whatever writing you have, I'll be happy to read! But I know about writing-posts-in-head that never get written.

I'd be interested in what you have to say about the Scott Simon book. I wondered about it when I heard him interviewed a month or two ago, but never did hunt it down to read it.

That badassery stuff makes me want to re-write my resolutions.

Happy New Year to you, too! I'm coming late to the post, from far-away Minnesota.

And I'm glad to hear your reaction to SSimon's book (it's close to my reaction to him as an interviewer, actually: he's so amazingly, blindingly arrogant that I hate listening to him!).

Badasses Unite and Thrive!
