Oooh, Pip and I also watched all of the LOTRses. We finished Return of the King last night at 11:45 and were inspired for the new year by the ultimate triumph of good over evil.

Hmmm. I still haven't sent you your Christmas card. At this point I will say it may become something of a crapshoot. Perhaps you will receive a nice MLK Jr birthday (observed) card, or perhaps something for Australia day. Or perhaps I'll go really crazy and just wait for Waitangi Day. It has the word "wait" in it, and it is a holiday of New Zealand, which is also Middle Earth, which makes it all very thematic, at least for this comment. Either way, it will include a picture of my family, suitable for framing. You can look forward to that.

I recognize the slippers behind the cinammon roll! Excellent choice!
