The holidays are finally over, and I couldn’t be more pleased about it. This season, particularly was over-stuffed and full of drama, with meeting MamaDork’s manpanion (post to come), a death in the Dude family (ditto), and the birth of two premature step-nephews and a full-term niece (who has the rockin’-est name ever) on my side (double ditto), and travel to see if not all and sundry, then most. And then snowmageddon out here…and we’re still not quite over that.
I’m ready for things to get back to quote-unquote normal, with regular plans and tasks, with days of the week that mean something. Over the last two weeks, I’ve totally lost track of what day it was, which partially explains why we’re having a Monday Fun Thread. The rest of the explanation is that a) many of us probably have a fun new thing or two that we got for Christmas, or bought on some excellent sale for ourselves and b) I’m out of practice with the blogging and commenting, and you might be, too, so this should help sort us out.
So: what lovely new thing, however minor or silly, is thrilling you recently? I got a stack of books, a pile of kitchen toys, and delicious snacks to choke a horse this year, so I’m a happy happy dino, but I think my favorite thing, which I fondle incessantly and over which I coo delightedly, is something I bought myself off Etsy leading up to Xmas: my robot necklace.
Bleep bloop. What’s yours?
