a few housekeeping items
- one robert becker did, without question, crush me at scrabble last night. twice. but only because i spent the evening looking at a rack full of nothing but vowels. plus i kept graciously -- or stupidly, depending on your perspective, i guess -- opening up the triple word score squares, which he then mercilessly took advantage of. using all the cool letters he was getting, like q and z. heck, even if i did get a chance at a triple word score square, i would have had to make some lame word like "ion" or "era." damn vowels. i demand a rematch.

- i had the extreme pleasure of seeing the one and only fleetwood mac last night. they put on an incredible show, and i'm glad that i had a chance to see them live. my mom wore out no less than two copies of rumors during my childhood, so i'm a bit of a fan. lindsay buckingham is a phenomenal performer, and also has this uncanny ability to get hotter with age. unlike the rest of the band. however, i must say that stevie nicks looked -- and sounded -- better than in years past...but her shoes made me sad. remember how stevie used to rock those crazy lace-up knee-high boots with the stilletto heels? and how she'd not just rock them, but she'd spin around in them?! well, now stevie is rocking what looked like some orthopedic earth shoes with wedge heels and glitter shoelaces. and there was one almost-spinning incident, but, it was more shuffling than spinning, really. sad times.

- yeah, there's a new graphic up there. i'm playing around with several options that you'll see in the next several weeks. test driving, if you will. feel free to throw in your two cents.

- the votes have been tallied, the decision is made. tonight i'll be attempting to share the mojo is strong in this one at fray day. i say "attempting" because i'm a bit nervous. i know, i know...over there on the left it says that i enjoy speaking in front of large crowds. and, it's true. i've been doing it for years, but mostly in the context of teaching classes or giving presentations at conferences. this thing tonight feels a little different. it's sharing something more personal. so, it makes me nervous.

- some of you may also be questioning another item in my list over there on the left. how can anyone calling herself a cubs fan have made no mention of the ubs-cay and the ayoffs-play?! for the record: i fear any reflection, celebratory or otherwise, will jinx the whole thing. so, pretend i didn't even write this.
