Happy New Year!

No, I'm not holding a New Year's Party early to compensate for the late Memorial Day party.

As many of you know, I am an Nancyist. This is a simple faith, with few commandments (the Wearing of the Button being the principal one, of course). And its primary holiday is the turn of the year. But the Nancyist year is different from other years, since its length is determined by the individual adherent. And so, once a year, on this New Year's Eve, we must engage in the ritual Counting of the Buttons, which determines the length of the following year.

The next year shall be 630 buttons long. Verily, my button-box floweth over.

Actually, that's a little scary even for me. But I do take my small joys in the courage of my own geekitude...
