I took down all the Advent decorations tonight. And I put up some Christmas gifts, including a fantastic piece of art that my parents bought me at an art show.

It's so much more lovely (and much bigger!) than the photo shows--all my favorite colors, and little birds with button eyes. It's crafted out of handmade and painted papers, all on canvas. I admired it at the show, but didn't have the money to buy it. Imagine my shock when I opened my gift! I love it.

Another good start to 2010.

On an entirely different note, due to a manufacturing defect, I am now starting my car by putting the key in the ignition, hitting the key with a hammer, turning the wheel sharply to the right, and jiggling the steering column. Then I can turn the key and go wherever I want. Piece o' cake.

2010 is bringing many things...

Think of this way: now your car has character! (And a great backstory!)
