>For those of you who responded to my NaBloPoMo post on Nov. 30, I sent you a mug.* Instead of watching your pocket, keep an eye on the mail for it. I mugged some of you for your birthday, others for the holidays, and everyone else in some sort of pathetic attempt to reward/bribe people to be my friend and read my blog. So sue me.

I'm heading to my parents' house this afternoon, although I expect massive weather-related delays and general chaos at the airport. My time at home will be spent: shopping for a treadmill to replace th one ruined when my parents' basement flooded in August; attending a bris (my first - expect a good post on that one!); hanging out with Granny; shopping for new clogs with Bubbe; dining with my friends Rachel and Jenny; and generally spending time with my parents, sister, and brother-in-law. Plans also call for an updated picture of me in that hideous white peasant blouse that I wore all the time in 1994. While I was at the gym yesterday, I also decided it would be fun to re-read the stories I wrote when I was in 5th grade and post the best one(s) on CUSS.

Yes, stay tuned for lots of unshaved excitement.

*Country Mouse: If you would like one, please email me and let me know where I can send it.
