Sorry about that hiatus. I was in a turkey coma, and then I was in Pittsburgh visiting my inlaws.
The cool thing was, it snowed while were were in Pittsburgh. I was really really excited. Full disclosure: it was only about 2 inches. I acknowledge that it's a little douchey to get excited about 2 inches, but then again my law school roommate Angie dated a guy who fully expected her to get excited about 2 inches.

Today is the 5-year anniversary of the day I adopted the little ninja. At the time, bringing her home felt like the biggest leap I'd ever taken.
The fetus that is currently gestating in my uterus may have some influence in diminishing the retrospective size of that leap, but really, I just feel so lucky to have her.
Speaking of the the fetus, all seems to be progressing well on that front. My abdominal region is grotesquely distended, but still the secretaries at my office very kindly say that I look cute.
My fingernails are growing like gangbusters, as seen here in this action shot of me making an origami crane.
My plan was to grow them until Halloween, then file them to viscious points and paint them black, but I had to cut them off a week early because I kept stabbing myself in the cornea while trying to take out my contacts. They're pretty long again, though. It's hard to keep up with them.
This weekend, we are graced with a visit by Mr. Bell Tower. We will have a lot of fun, and also he will help us get our Christmas tree into the stand. The perfect guest!
