Happy new year! (let's pretend we're all following the chinese calendar)
I wish I had something exciting to say as opposed to "let's post an update to show I'm still alive and despite the evils of Twitter am still capable of writing more than 140 characters at a time".

January has been a bit busy with real life, so I didn't have time for fun stuff ... although, I did have some work related fun of course. Like, I found out you can build "clouds" that actually float and look quite realistic out of helium balloons, tissue paper, glue and pillow stuffing. Creating them is a messy job, but the results are great and you get the funniest looks when you're walking down a street with a big cloud hovering over your head (bless nylon strings for being almost invisible ... )

Oh, I got a resolution for the still new year - I won't fail my reading challenge on goodreads again. Yeah, not really a challenge or a resolution, since you can pick the number of books you want to read yourself ... but I want to make a visible dent in my huge pile of unread books this year. So I haven't checked out any new TV shows, in fact, the only thing I watch at the moment is Fringe ... and Elementary if I don't forget it. It's like one of the CSI or CIS? (I never get that right, starts with a C anyway ...) shows, the cases are usually interesting enough to hold my attention for an hour, but nothing about these shows makes me want to record them or seek them out online if I missed an episode.

Anyway, how is everyone doing? Snowed in or already in spring mode?
