Just went through my list and I appear to have been on a bit of a bender this year in anticipation of the move. I bought ... 104 books? And have only read 32? I think I can get to 34, but still, that's only ONE THIRD of the books I bought (and some of the books I read were only loaners). Lordy, that's 20 more books than last year. It all hits rather heavily after getting all of the books unpacked and mostly put away ... that Rob Brezny once again has my number: "I've been meditating on the perfect holiday gift for you. What symbolic offering might put you in the right mood to deal proactively with potential problems in 2007? I've decided on a set of those specially-designed clothes-storage bags that allow you to suck all the air out, compressing your sweaters and pants so that they take up significantly less space in your luggage or closet. Hopefully these bags would inspire you to come up with creative applications of the "less is more" principle, which will be a recurring theme for you in the coming months."
Just shut up, okay? I know I need to have "less," but what I really want instead is a nice chest of drawers and maybe a cute little display cabinet for my vases.
Shows for this year: 50 (after tomorrow - a big increase over 2005's 37), movies: 46. Would like to see just a few more movies but I've been too lazy and cheap - but maybe I'll see one tomorrow anyway.
