Had a nice, subdued holiday with the folks, then went to Conway for the annual tacos-and-lotto-gifts-fest. That was rather fun, too: I received the gift that dad bought, which was a Galilean, er, Galileo Thermometer. I also received a few nugæ and -- drumroll, please -- the grand total of monies from the season gets me enough to buy a radiator for the truck. Yay! I also have £35 in Walmart currency, so there's, I don't know, a new belt, and a mouse, and... some music, or something. Eh.
I finished The Old Man and the Sea last night, and enjoyed it greatly. I then began For Whom the Bell Tolls, but haven't gotten far enough into it to be terribly interested yet. Alas.
Fie festive yool.
