December 2008

'I don't know what to do!' cried Scrooge, laughing and crying in the same breath; and making a perfect Laocoon of himself with his stockings. 'I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a schoolboy. I am as giddy as a drunken man."

Charles Dickens,  A Christmas Carol (Electronic Text Center, University of Virginia Library)

an exhilarating, challenging, and satisfying 2009—
