This time of year, Los Angeles always feels like a semi-deserted college town. The good news is that the traffic is almost tolerable and the freeways move at nearly freeway speed for most of the day. This is nice… but  a bit  dull.

I’m taking advantage of this lull and wrapping up the odd year of 2009 by trying to finish up some creative projects, while starting up some new ones that’ll carry me into the new year.

Of course 2009 wouldn’t be the ball-busting year it was if it didn’t try to get in a few more jabs… so in the past two weeks I have had to deal with both car repairs and computer repairs… two things that are always very frustrating (oh, and expensive.) but we soldier on. More details to come of course.

Meanwhile, another new picture for the “Tom” files.
