Now I've done it. Yesterday, while folks far better than I spread holiday cheer by feeding the homeless and greeting their relatives, I created a new me. I gave her a name, a suitable complexion, and a groovy nickname. I made her willowy and strong, and for good measure set her up with a smear of...
