Lynn’s Christmas Letter

It’s been a pretty kick-*ss December. Nope, make that a pretty kick-*ss year.

Kevin’s Web Word Wizard is selling like gangbusters. He’s even sold it to someone in Norway. Ahhh, I love the Internet!

I ended up going to Internet World in New York City a couple of weeks ago. It was on very short notice — found out I could go on Monday, and was on the plane Tuesday night. Actually, Wednesday morning. Do *not* fly on Tower Air under any circumstances, ever. With the time I spent waiting at the airport for their planes to depart, I could have flown cross-country TWICE. Grrrr. The real kicker was arriving at JFK at 2:00 for my 4:00 flight and being told, “Oh, that flight has been rescheduled for 8:30.” In the six and a half hours I had to wait, I finished one book (Ishmael, by Daniel Quinn), started and finished another (Cat’s Cradle, by Kurt Vonnegut), plus a magazine. Oh, and I painted my nails (Kevin would be meeting me in SFO, after all). By the time I got off the plane, I had read two more magazines and was 280 pages into another book (A Thousand Acres, by Jane Smiley). So at least the time was spent productively. I’d rant more about it, but hey, it’s nearly Christmas.

Oooh, it’s nearly Christmas! My shopping is done (I did most of it in October while in France). Kevin started his shopping on Sunday, but he bought my gift first, so that’s good. Heh heh heh…

Life at work continues to go well. I got a wonderful performance review and feel so blessed to be working there!

So I’m going to my Mom’s house for Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, and for Christmas dinner the two of us will go to Kevin’s parents’ house. We all spent Thanksgiving together, too, so everyone already knows everyone else. I’m looking forward to it (and looking forward to giving Kevin his gift, which I purchased more than a month ago…).

The only fly in the ointment of my life is that Kevin and I still haven’t determined what to do for New Year’s Eve (no, besides that). We might go to a party if we can work our way around the transportation issue. We wanted (well, I wanted) to see SuperDiamond at the Fairmont, but it is already sold out. If you have any New Year’s tips for San Francisco, let me know!

Merry, Merry Christmas to all of you who are into that. Happy day off to those who aren’t. Bless you all!
