finally, last friday a very late bday/xmas package arrived in the mail. some of the presents were wrapped in very cool superfriends wrapping paper. a few highlights from the package:

    books:

  • please kill me
  • escape to witch mountain
  • persepolis

    camera:

  • polaroid camera

    dvds:

  • the spirit of ’76
  • red dwarf series II

i’ve already read two of the books and watched the dvds. i loved the persepolis graphic novel. please kill me i enjoyed less. it was an interesting read, but man do some of those people just whine and whine. the dvds i loved. it’s been over 10 years since i’ve seen any red dwarf so i was happy to get re-acquainted with the show. and the spirit of ’76 – well, it’s hard not to love a film that includes time travel, excellent 1970s fashion, and a cast that includes david cassidy, barbara bain, moon unit zappa, and devo to name just a few. i haven’t had the chance to try out the camera yet, but it’s high on my list. happily it takes fuji peel apart film too.

of course with good things bad things must happen. the afternoon i got the package i got in my first real scooter accident. luckily, aside from myself, no one was really hurt. i twisted my wrist and skinned up my ankle and elbow. as a result i’ve been trying to lay off using the left hand a bit.
