First of all, congratulations to all those who've won in the recent neil geiman contest in prose and graphic fiction, most especially Andrew, Ian, Banzai Cat and Yvette! What can I say? I'm so proud to be walking (and being friends with) giants. :)
Another noteworthy occasion, on a more personal note, is that Alex and I are expecting! We expect the newest addition to our family to come in around late July to early August next year (complications notwithstanding). Any sort of prayers for the well being of our "little blob" (as that's how it looks right now in the ultra sound), will be most appreciated.
All in all, it's been a good year.
