Next year, I think I'd like to try and celebrate Epiphany, or Three Kings' Day. These holidays focus on Jesus's birth, and do so in a more meaningful way. And that way I can celebrate twice, and have a fun and meaningful holiday. What do you think?
Among the cool things I got were some smart wool socks, Rabbit Angstrom, St Bernardus Christmas pack, and a sandwich maker. Although I will enjoy most of my new toys, I am realizing more and more that my Christmas spending could be put to much better use. In the future, I hope that my gifts given and received will be mostly charitable donations.
Some things I'm into right now: I'm reading People's History of the US and A Prayer for Owen Meany. I like the Pittsburgh Penguins but they're playing mediocre hockey. I start a new job in a week. I going to do the Philadelphia Triathlon. I want to learn French, and Gran Torino was terrible film. Discuss any and all of these with me. See you soon.
