Chillin'

... I'm on vacation!

... I was off from work for Christmas Day, but had to go back in for the four-day week. Worked on some designs. Did some editing. Wrote a bit ...

... And at 3 o' clock this afternoon, I said see ya next year and left the building for a much-anticipated, much-needed one-week vacation.

Kates and I have nothing special planned for the week, but I'm looking forward to sleeping late, watching lots of movies, doing some work around the house, some shopping, maybe a day-trip to Chicago and catching up on some personal work ...

(happy sigh)

Being on vacation feels good.

... So I'm on an ABBA kick now.

Over the last couple days I've been watching bits and pieces of the "ABBA: Super Troupers" documentary I DVR'd from PBS last weekend, and I finished watching it after work today...

Say what you will about their cheese factor, but they're just one of those groups -- you can't deny theeir successes. Their complex melodies and harmonies are oh so catchy and fun to listen to, plus I'm a sucker for great female voices ...

It's reading about their histories and moments like these that I think if only groups like Abba, The Beatles or The Carpenters could reunite just once more ...
