Happy holidays, everyone!  Is it just me, or have these cards gotten progressively stranger over the years?  This year’s card was made with a pencil, a sharpie, a piece of computer paper, a scanner, the GIMP 2.0, and a bit of digital photo collage (with some of my own images and some images from Wikimedia Commons).

It has been a down-the-rabbit-hole sort of year for me, let me tell you!  I was bit by a dead shark on stage at the Johnson Space Center (yes, NASA’s “Houston”) and had to be treated for nerve damage in my right hand (don’t worry, I got better!).  I performed more than 100 times for Mad Science of Houston (once on television), I was in a dinner-theatre musical at the Houston Hobby Center (right in the heart of the theatre district), I made about a billion beverages working at Starbucks and Teavana, and just in the past couple weeks I was offered adjunct positions at both San Jacinto College Central and Lone Star College Atascocita Center.  My life has been absolute chaos recently, as I scramble to finish all the crazy hiring paperwork at the two colleges, write a syllabus for Intro. to Theatre, and prepare for auditions (I am slated to be the music director for San Jacinto’s production of Young Frankenstein the Musical, and I have been asked to teach the people auditioning a selection… sort of borrowing the format of a dance audition).  In completely different news, Trafficking in Magic/Magicking in Traffic, an anthology in which my poem “Roadseller’s Trade” is the very first piece the reader sees, is set to be released in May, and I am determined to get Kinlea Keeper and Curse back into print before then so that people who like the poem may wander by my website and buy the books.  Also, over the past month I have slowly moved to an apartment in the middle of town, though my bed, sofa, and sewing table are all still at my sister’s house until Friday, when I’ve scheduled a U-Haul rental.  Aaaaaaaaaanyhow, many, many thanks to all of you who have supported my many endeavors this year (and in past years!  The application I just signed at SJC was submitted to them in the winter of 2011).  I couldn’t have done it without you ^_^.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!  -E.G.D.

      Thanks? I’m not sure why you would put this particular comment on my Christmas card post and not on a page, though, if it’s sincere…
