"True Love is just codependency with a better soundtrack" --C. Peterman
Blender of Love Digest January 1998

1998 The Great

Another year, another series of new hopes, new anxieties, and a big bunch of resolutions to cherish or ignore. Just two more years 'til the Big '00 (and despite what the pedants would tell is, it really is the rolling over of the calendar's odometer that makes the difference.)

A smaller than usual selection from the Heart on Sleeve corner this month, but a review of Garrison Keillor's latest work and my usual ramble can set things back to normal...

...but things won't be quite normal for me for some time, because Kirk, Blender-Keeper is in love. (More later, perhaps--)
