First, I went to Spokane for work. I managed to get three hour delays in both directions -which, sucky, etc, but on the other hand I always overpack in the book department and so I managed to finish one book (Four Souls), get halfway through two others (Parrot & Olivier and Little Heathens), and finish all of the editing I brought along and draft the report article, all while sitting in increasingly uncomfortable airport chairs and borrowing airport Wifi.
Pretty much the moment I stepped off the plane in Denver it was time to go to this:

So Merry Christmas and happy holidays, everyone.
