Yes! Holiday break is officially broke--I'm off for two weeks! The dog, as you can see, is happy, too: when I'm off, he gets to stay inside with me, instead of outside in the freezing cold. He is amenable to this situation.
Updates are going to be a little sporadic in the coming weeks, and commenting may cease, depending on whether or not I get the interwebs for a Christmas present to myself. Just FYI.
