Guess who has 254 posts in her RSS reader? No, guess! YES, IT IS ME! So if you are thinking to yourself, "Why is Swistle not commenting on this post when it is about the very things she normally can't shut up about?," that is why.
You know how sometimes all the joy has been wrung from the universe and nothing is left but the dirty rag squeezings, and there is nothing fun to do in the whole world? Well, I am the OPPOSITE of that right now: I have about fifty tasks to do, most of which are fun and interesting. I need to cruise Etsy and and make my Christmas list. I need to decide if I'm going to order some expensive perfume with my own money (Paul and I get allowances--is that too cute for words?). I need to eat a bag of Raisinets.

I need to do some online shopping for Christmas presents. I need to finish watching season 3 of Angel. I need to go through a year of archives and move the sensitive stuff to a new blog I'm calling Swistle Confidential (more on this later). I need to finish Scarlet Feather by Maeve Binchy.

I need to do a load of laundry, which sounds boring until you realize it contains a bunch of new clothes for the kids. I need to show you THESE JEANS:
