I went to the grocery yesterday and, this being that time of the year, things were a bit crowded. Something happened near the end that made up for the whole ordeal though, when I got to the cash register. The bagger, a young man, asked me hesitantly if I was a writer. I thought that maybe I reminded him of a specific writer he had seen the photo of, but, no, it's just that I looked like his idea of a writer. Curse that casual and yet elegant attire of mine. Curse that silver mane of mine. Of course, the young woman working at the cash register had to deflate the whole thing by saying she didn't think I looked like a writer.

Besides that, we had a sort-of pre-Christmas family gathering. Some of those cartoon DVDs did come in handy to keep my 6-year-old nephew entertained, the Bugs Bunny ones anyway. He apparently isn't into superheroes anymore. I guess he's growing up. I guess I'll eventually stop being the coolest uncle. Oh well. At least there was my 11-month-old nephew who was quite wary of me at first, but eventually decided I was ok once he touched that hairy thing growing on my chin. There were even times when he'd waddle around following me.

In case we don't 'see' each other for a few days...

Merry Christmas to you all!

Thanks. Last year, the return trip was fine untill we got back to where we live. It had just finished snowing heavily and traffic for the last 10 miles was, to put it mildly, sloooooowwwwww.

Sigh. Nobody ever asks me if I'm a writer. Obviously, not a snazzy dresser.

Merry Christmas to you and Sue!

It's probably because female writers are supposed to dress like Danielle Steele. By the way, I've been dressing the same way as yesterday when I go to worldcons and more than once I'd notice people furtively glancing at my badge to see if I was Someone Famous.

Thanks for the wishes. Again, same to you and to Steve.

(Watched Ratatouille while eating Christmas Eve turkey dinner last night. Two thumbs up.)

Hey, what I cooked wasn't bad. Not up to the standards of the movie, but okay.
