Well. You know you're living in a "post-Katrina" world when you receive the September issue of Poetry and a Christmas card on January 29th.

or when you point out a loose brick that you think needs mortar caul and part of the wall comes off in your hand. (This sounded just like a tomb opening in a blockbuster movie.)

or when you barter with the contractor--floor sweeping in exchange for a lesson from the expert caulker

or when it doesn't bother you to sit down for dinner when the carpenter is trimming out a window right behind the table where you eat.

or when you finally feel comfortable saying "I'm sorry--is that the 'I don't want to do it price?"

or you find you are still raking tree debris out of the yard. And the attic.

Well, I don't know if you're up for it, but if you'd like to join in our silly internet reindeer games, I've tagged you.

And as an update on the books, they're here at the university bookstore. We won't be using them for another 6 weeks or so, but I can send you a camera phone pic of the stack if you'd like. :)
