Gearing up

Happy New Year to those celebrating it! :) (Obviously, as I'm online, I'm Reform and only keep one day.)

Gearing up for TWH, and starting to get fairly psyched. My black velvet dress still fits, so I have something to wear to the ball, which I'll have to leave around ten to go read "A Drift of Azaleas," but hey, I'll be reading it dressed in velvet. ;) Alas, I have to work until nine tonight, so no early Salem trip (though anyone in Salem already who plans to wander down to Boston to see stuff before the events part of the symposium starts, drop me an e-mail and I'll let you know where I am; being a helpful librarian sort, I can also help you find stuff to see!). fernwithy [at] gmail [dot] com.

According to the weather report last night, today and tomorrow are going to be corkers, but a cold front is coming in Friday evening which will bring showers, and Saturday will be rainy and blustery. :( On the plus side, the leaves are finally starting to turn--not peaking yet, but starting--so you all may get to see a bit of New England in the fall, which is a totally worthy pursuit.

Alas, my eye allergies are acting up, and I think I may have to--gasp! horrors!--wear my glasses.
