The Heart of Saturday Night...

No Tom Waites tonight, spinning
  • The Devil Makes Three CDs -- all three --
  • and savoring the tunes while baking some homemade Bissette-style chocolate chip cookies.

    The house is swinging (I am deep in love with
  • Devil Makes Three, and if you want to hear a sample and check 'em out for yourself, click here, slick!)
  • and it sure smells goooooooood. My deepest thanks once more to Maia and Danny for turning me on to this great music, and howdy out to Peter, Lucia and Cooper, for what it's worth.

    Well, here in Windsor, the snow is still blowing, but dropped out just shy of 7 inches or so. We're all plowed out, dug out and fancy free, but no desire to risk the icy roads to go anywhere. Why leave this sweet home tonight?

    Screened two movies as part of my WRIF (White River Independent Film festival) duties, one pleasant, one incredible. I'll write about 'em tomorrow. 'Nite, all...

    Warm Thoughts from the Frosty Lands

    Alex Ness of the online Land of Frost column has just
  • posted these warm and fuzzies about comics that should be collected into book format, including Tyrant.

  • Thanks for the kind thoughts, Alex, and kind words. It may yet come to pass!

    Up, Shaved, Showered and Shoveled at 6 AM --

    -- and there was already just shy of 6 inches of snow on the ground. It's the thick, heavy stuff, unlike the lighter snow of our blizzard of two weeks ago, and it's still coming down steadily. I was out early enough to ferret out the morning paper before the snow got too deep, or the plow buried the paper till spring, and savored a brisk walk around the neighborhood amid the snow. I love this time of year, but then again, I love 'em all.

    Peter Money and I made our trip to the Fairbanks Museum with the CCS freshmen (and two seniors) this past Wednesday, and it was a marvelous excursion. I'll post some thoughts later today, time permitting, and hopefully find a way to post some images, too. Our first planned date was wiped by the storm two weeks ago, but we had an absolutely perfect day this time around: warm, sunny, clear skies, ideal for walking in St. Johnsbury and exploring town and museum.

    The rest of the week has been intensive and busy; it's a relief to have the storm descending on us today. Marge is home (school was called off for her with the blessed 5 AM phone call), and we made sure last night we had our groceries in hand and last-minute needs dealt with in hopes of just tucking in today.

    OK, have a great Friday, more later --
