This might be the unemployment talking, but I've just decided that what the world really needs is a novel about twenty-something hipster werewolves living in Portland. Written by me.

Excuse me, I have to go start my outline.

Due to wacky Portland weather (two feet of snow is highly inconvenient when you live in a city without snowplows) my family Christmas was postponed this year. As far as me and mine are concerned, tomorrow is both New Year's Eve and Christmas Eve - two holidays for the price of one. Hot dog.

So I have two days of family fun time ahead of me, and while I'm looking forward to it, I know I'll be desperate for an excuse to duck behind my laptop and shut out the convivial bickering for an hour or two. That's where y'all come in.
