Time seems to speed up as the end of the year gets closer, have you noticed? Can't believe it's already December! Am starting to go into a slight pre-Christmas panic mode as I'm realizing how many things I have to get done within the next few weeks. Eek. Forgot to blather about Sunday's X-Files episode. I wasn't really keen on the previous two episodes, so I'm glad to see they're getting back to some interesting plot and character developmentstuff. Had lunch with Cathy today (Cathy is the one who turned Jeff and I into hopeless X-Files addicts, by the way). I definitely have to write an X-Files song next year. Speaking of new songs, I've almost finished an a capella song for UT which should be fun to do. It's the first deliberately a capella three-part harmony song I've written for the group, so it'll be interesting to see how it turns out. I taught part of it to Allison and Jodi last week; with luck, we'll have this ready for Confusion.
