The Vancouver Supercomputing Apartment sent me wonderful things, including a ROASTING PAN which will ROAST all kinds of things! Many thanks to stimps!

mendel and nyxie sure know how to pick a holiday card.

My sainted family gave me a little Canon digital camera, which will make it much easier to catalog horrible ads, ugly people, and cute animals.

I received books, which I shall read! Including some Paul Auster, Umberto Eco, and other delights for HI-BROW FOLKS such as me.

I did not get a rock.

Have you got a copy of Eco's "On Ugliness"? It seems like your kind of book. IT'S A VERITABLE SOCAL PRIMER.

We at the VSCA are delighted that you can now roast roasts. We expect delivery of roasted meat before Christmas.

Happy birthday, C.

Happy very belated birthday, my friend. At my age, I try to forget mine, and accordingly, forget those of my friends as well.

In other news, I'll try to get that rock to you as soon as I leave the house. With any luck, be looking for it in 2010.

Glad you enjoyed your birthday.

So what's it like being a "hi-brow?"
I hope it's nothing like being a hi-bro.
