Happy Holidays!

I'm a day late for wishing you Merry Christmas, but I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday (if you celebrate) or a nice day off (if you don't)! I hope 2009 is a much better year for all of us.

One of my resolutions is to actually pay attention to this blog again. I miss writing about reading, and I have a pile of books I'm excited about reading.

And I keep forgetting to tell you guys this: I'm going to Gallifrey One in February (Yes, a Doctor Who Convention. No, I couldn't be more of a geek.) But the best part is: David Gerrold is one of the guests! So I can ask him in person where Book 5 of the Chtorr series is!

Online Friends

I was very sad to learn last week that Dewey of The Hidden Side of a Leaf passed away. I only knew her through her blog and mine, but I did consider her a friend, and the news hit me much harder than I expected.

And being me, I started thinking. I only found out because her husband posted the news on her blog. If anything were to happen to me, my family doesn't even know I have a blog. So I guess I should include some instructions about online accounts, etc., along with my will (which I haven't written yet either). I know it's not what anyone wants to think about, but there it is.

Sorry I don't have a more cheerful post, but I hope all of you are well.
