This is going to be one of those "throw it all in a blender and see what color the smoothie turns out" kinds of posts. It's probably going to be a gross brownish-green color, but it'll taste amazing and energize you. Maybe.
What were we talking about? Oh, here's some of the stuff that's going on right now:
My friend A Librarian is moving away. I'm happy that she's found a job that's exactly what she's been wanting to do, but I will miss hanging out with her and occasionally cat-sitting her cats. (Picture all the sad-face emoticons here.)

I'm doing a bit of blogging elsewhere this month. I'm the featured blogger for January on Kansas Women Bloggers. I believed they chose me because I live in Kansas, I'm a woman and I'm a blogger. Also, I watch my email like a hawk and I'm quick to respond when someone asks me if I want to do something.

My band has had a longer than expected break between gigs, but we're playing this Saturday night and debuting seven new cover songs that we've learned in the interim. I'm almost more excited that we're dropping seven duds from the set list, but it'll be fun to see some of our regulars react to the new material. Our bookings for the year are actually going pretty well. We have gigs on our schedule up through September right now.

At the end of the month I will be called upon to flex my Cool Aunt powers when I stay with my niece and nephew for a week while their parents are out of town. I was going to bring Toby with me, but because he thoroughly disgraced himself on Christmas Day, he'll be staying home with my husband, who may or may not keep him dosed with his daily thyroid medication.

I am going to do everything in my power to attend the BlogHer conference this year. It's the 10th anniversary and I was there for the first one (and the six after that).

Okay, that's all I have time for right now. My husband is about to have band practice right outside my office door, so I need to take this opportunity to flee downstairs.
What's up with you?
