[Around Here] On Works in Progress

I got a message from a twitter friend the other day inviting me to participate in a blog round-up where folks answer questions about their current works in progress.  I sadly had to respond that I'd love to be a part of it except that I currently have no work in progress.

Juggling & Creative Juju

Lately I've been learning to juggle. {Maybe I should learn to actually juggle. That'd be a neat party trick.
