Happy Christmastide!

This is the season of the liturgical year called Christmastide--also known as the twelve days of Christmas. (Learn more at Edifice Rex.) The celebration continues until January 5!
Or if you're a member of some Orthodox churches, Christmas itself doesn't come until January. Some of my friends from Eastern Europe actually celebrate twice. Interesting!

Most American college students have seen 100 movies for every 1 book they have read.

What do you think would be your movie/book ratio, if you counted?

I have to say that mine would come out with more books than movies, although I like both.

Did you know that Good King Wenceslas was from Prague? You can read all about it here and here.

Apparently this is what my school looks like at Christmastime:


I'd like to be there right now...or at a Christmas market in Europe.

Some other time, perhaps!

The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

1. It actually SNOWED! Yeah!! We got about an inch on the mountain.

2. Somehow I managed to exceed the usage limit on my internet plan. That means you may not be hearing too much from me in the next week. :(

3. Today I bought the first of the Christmas gifts I'll give. And there are still three weeks left!

4. I still can't quite shake that yucky tired feeling from time to time throughout the week (especially when I'm busy). ARGH. Oh well--eventually.
