late night ruminations...

It's 12:22 by my computer clock and the house is finally settled. Zoe had her bottle, the boys are crashed, and Kels is next to me with her fingernails click-clacking out an email on the keyboard of her macbook. I hear it in muted tones, drowing most of it out with OTR on the headphones.

I need to listen to OTR more regularly. I went on a major kick a few years ago after we moved to Kansas City but found their music made me remarkably homesick for Cincinnati so I put them on hiatus for a while. Enough time has passed now that I can listen to it without pining for Baba Budan's or a sky-way five way, heavy bean, heavy onion. Let the blog reader understand....

Once Christmas clears the deck, we hit the ground running for the onething conference by loading the convoy of trucks on Tuesday. Having jettisoned the "Work Harder, Not Smarter" program that was so unpopular last year, we have aquired smaller trucks this year that will drive directly into the arena for unloading. Wednesday is unload and setup day, then on Thursday it's All Systems Go(crazy). I'm glad our seminars are on Friday, because it means we can dial down after that and enjoy the conference a little more.

I understand that some blogs are taking the next week off. I say baloney. I will be blogging Christmas and the onething conference in realtime with photographs and would include a scratch-n-sniff feature if I could figure out how to do it in HTML. Stay tuned for all the stuff that's fun to blog. You can count on me.
