It was announced today that Will and Kate are expecting a baby. The world is so excited that their website is down! Poor Kate is in hospital yakking her brains out. Feel better soon, Kate.

I went to see my family over the weekend for a belated Thanksgiving. I put together my mom’s fake tree and the top was funky. I thought it looked like a Dr. Seuss tree and suggested she keep it funky. But she wanted to put her angel on top, so we fixed it.










I failed to take a photo of the finished product. My mom has a bazillion ornaments and insists on putting every last one on the tree. If you were to breathe too hard on the tree, it would probably fall over.

I am planning to get out my decorations this weekend. I’m hoping that will get me into the holiday spirit. I just can’t believe it’s December!! Cannot. Believe. It.

And here’s my occasional activist plug: December 10 is International Human Rights Day. Take an hour or two this week or weekend and Write for Rights!
