me and my vulture

One last gasp before the old year dies (Song Title; search?)

So I took a longer vacation than I thought.  I'm still at home, but I haven't touched my computer for days except to look at e-mail in a half-interested sort of way.  I hope you all had a good holiday, and for those of you who are members of the present-giving and -getting religions, I hope you made out like bandits.

I got something from an unexpected source; American Express sent us an i-Pod Shuffle as a thank-you for spending ridiculous amounts of money using their card this year (not a good thing in and of itself, mind you).  It's very pretty (silver), and while I am light years behind everyone else in terms of updating my technology, I did manage to get it loaded and am listening to it right now (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Brompton Oratory).
