December 2007: In Brief

 Hello L.A. Friends! I’m Back: Turns out I kept cheating and read everyone’s LJ’s anyway. I’m able to watch TV episodes on my Tivo about 2 weeks late but there’s hardly anything to watch anyway. Sigh.  At least I have LJ again.

Saw the play Beauty and the Beast at “Calvin’s” high school.  He was in the pit orchestra.

Daughterling’s winter music concert and ice cream afterwards

Pre-holiday dinner with my dad and brother; had a small family music concert afterwards
