Merry Christmas From The Dept. Of Nance

It's time, Dept. readers, to take a Long Winter's Nap and spend that Quality Time with family and loved ones dear. I plan to rest, recharge, and make a Real Effort to think about What's Really Important.

As a very smart person who happened to be a minister said in the paper the other day, Christmas should be more about presence than presents. I hope to remember that.

Thank you for your presence here: your spirited comments, your emails, and your support at Stuff on Our List and at The Brian Williams Tie Report Archives.

The vast majority of you, I've never met--yet I feel like we're old friends. And that's so very nice.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Have a Very Nice Rest

from Nance, Rick, Jared & Sam at
Dept. of Nance


  1. Merry Christmas to you, Nance. And will you be commenting on the fuss over the president-elect's bold decision to swim without a t-shirt?

  2. Merry Christmas Nance and family. :) Come back rejuvenated and ready to give 'em hell.

  3. Merry Christmas!!!!

  4. A bit belated, but Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family, Nance!

    Hope your holiday was great. I'm still recovering from ours.

    Hope the holly was jolly and that you are enjoying some respite from grading papers and teaching sex ed in the school library. ;-)

    Thanks for all you write, and all the best to the Dept. for the new year.

  7. Dearest Dept. Readers--Thank you all for your kind wishes. We are slothing around here at the Dept. most shockingly. Most days, I am in jammies/fleece until noon, at least. My new slippers are getting a workout.

    And, I brought zero schoolwork home with me. Sweet liberation.

    New post soon.

  8. Nance, added you to My Left Wing's blogroll.

    No need for reciprocity, though of course it would be ever so lovely...
