First off, happy birthday to Goblin!
And a pre-emptive happy birthday to BadHand tomorrow.

Just over halfway done with new year's cards. About halfway done with new icons, too. Caught Syriana last night, good stuff. Will post more on that later. Bebe back in town tomorrow night. Busy busy busy.

If I'm not on later tonight (a distinct possibility, what with the Virginia weekend and all) happy new year's, everyone. Sorry I'm missing the big party in MD, but, them's the breaks. Ye-ah. Sure not bitter there. Ah well. Virginia party should be fun.

My movie list of 2005 tomorrow night.
