Some Are Born To Sweet Delight

I'll lay out my Sunday for you: awake at 1:45pm or so after not getting in from post-show IHOP until after 3am, eventually begin building an IKEA dresser purchased before said show, take a break to go watch David Tennant's final 2-part Doctor Who with Arcadia and Rena, back home to finish the dresser, watch Election with my dinner, move all my clothes over, and basically toss about in bed until 6 or so when it finally became evident I wasn't getting to sleep before it was time to get to work.

Past midnight I'm eating tomato soup with Jim Jarmusch's Dead Man, having passed the hell out for six hours after getting home from work. Hell of a fitting way to start the year's drudgery. Considering it's Wednesday and there's still no sleep cycle to speak of.

There was, as is so often the case, a pretty substantial post working itself out in my head there for a while: thoughts regarding Christmas and my unapologetic love therefor. Even had pull-quotes from an interview with Humanist Chaplain Greg Epstein, in which he delivered a brilliant defense of a secular Christmas. On the other end of the spectrum there's this gem from A Colbert Christmas, one of those rare glimpses at The Real Stephen Colbert. I mean, maybe it's my own exceedingly fortunate circumstances of good health, decent means, and a loving family, but the whole gift-giving chestnut-roasting enterprise becomes more and more my favorite holiday with each passing year, and I don't care who knows it.

So how is everyone? I've been comparatively quiet since tour, I know. A lot is going on in/about my head, and I'm approaching 2010 (Space Age!) with some considerable changes in the works. Three-plus years without a real shakeup is starting to get to me. It's time to get un-comfortable again.

It's nice to hear from you.

I'm well enough - wrapped up in paperwork and preparation for studying overseas (the application package and portfolio is going out tomorrow) so it's a very exciting time for me. More musical collaboration is planned for the next few months, as well.

I'm hoping to see you guys over the spring if you tour the northeast.

Shakeups are good. I wish you the best in yours!
