I've finally recovered from the holidays; during them, I was rather under the weather. Not really sick, but so tired. It took until last Thursday to feel really well again.
In America, we seem to be in a state of suspended animation. Even the rather depressing news about the economy hasn't roused us out of our post-holiday stupor. It's as though we were waiting for some significant event to shake us into action.
Oh, wait, that will happen next week, when Obama ascends to the throne. We can then let the doves out, dance joyously in the streets, and eagerly throw ourselves into the task of changing everything about our mean ol' country.
I can't wait.
