Built For Speed

This turtle figurine appears every year around Christmas because it's part of the casual stable we've assembled for our holiday creche. This year it jumped to the floor, perhaps seeking a new career, or a chance to modify the stable demographics. But as the Broadway blessing goes, "Break a leg," and it did. Lost it completely.

I mention the turtle because I often feel like one, missing leg and all. Today I'm plodding through three dailies, in hopes of finishing them before the Superbowl (which I won't be watching, but we have Ray cued up in the dvd player.)
