Emily S. Whitten: ‘Tis the Season…

…For the Winter Blargh, that is. I don’t know why, but it seems inevitable that at least once a winter I get struck down by the Blargh. Sometimes it’s just for a couple of days. This year’s has been particularly harsh, as it’s been over a week and symptoms are still lingering.

So, alas, my energy levels are a bit low, and my wit is not sparkling or even really sparking right now, and when Neuron 1 in my brain says to Neuron 2, “It is time to think of exciting things to write about,” Neuron 2 says, “What? I’m sorry, I can’t think about anything at all except maybe my primary occupation of Staring Blankly At Things While Considering All The Stuff I’m Not Getting Done As The Holidays Rush Towards Me.” And then I cough.

However, just because I’m a little blah doesn’t mean you need to be! So in lieu of my usual writing, here is my version of Season’s Greetings From DC, a.k.a. a link to the USAF Band’s Holiday Flash Mob 2014 at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. I’ve never gotten to see it in person (yet!) but it’s pretty cool. So enjoy!

And until next time, Servo Lectio!
