That’s soooo it for me. And yes, I know I said that earlier today, but this time I really mean it. I’m hitting the road first thing Saturday morning, not to resettle in Smalltown, U.S.A., until some time on Sunday (I’m going straight from the St. Louis airport to a wedding in the middle of Missouri, then turning around and heading for points southeast). I won’t be blogging again until Monday at the earliest.
I do, however, plan to report from Smalltown with reasonable if not excessive regularity, just like I did last year. Even when I’m not posting, I’ll be thinking of you. And I’ll also be updating the right-hand column from time to time, starting with the three brand-new Top Fives I just posted. “About Last Night” never sleeps!
Which reminds me: did I tell you that Our Girl in Chicago will be coming to New York shortly after Christmas? I’m planning to show her off to all my blogfriends on New Year’s Eve, and certain selected luminaries may even be allowed to see her without the mask. She’ll be posting from here, so keep your eyes peeled for staggering revelations.
So long for now. Happy happy joy joy.
P.S. Oh, yes, one more thing: don’t forget to buy copies of All in the Dances: A Brief Life of George Balanchine and A Terry Teachout Reader for the as-yet-ungifted on your Christmas list!
Now I’m done. Finally. Really.
