I'm sick. Serafina's sick. My wife, thankfully, is not.

Christmas was a nice time had by all (as was my birthday). I received all kinds of nice things, including a couple of shirts.

I also received (gave?) Serafina some sloppy kisses (that's probably why we're sick).

I have a book to review, and I have yet to review it. It is called The British Pop Dandy: Masculinity, Popular Music and Culture (Aldershot: Ashgate, 2009) by Stan Hawkins. While I am looking forward to reading through it, I find it a bit daunting right now (since I'm sick).

Also, I am writing yet another article on Dollhouse for a collection by BenBella Books (edited by Jane Espenson). I'll hopefully be presenting a paper on this article in St. Louis in the Spring for the Popular Culture Association conference. I suppose I have yet to mention that I will be presenting a paper on violence and popular music in Regina at the IASPM conference in June.

Oh, what fun!

Have I mentioned that I am sick?
