Be it Christmas, Yule, Kwanzaa, Chanukah (which I think has just ended), or some other holiday I've never heard of), I hope that everyone reading this is having a happy one! (Kudos to [livejournal.com profile] treebones for the "Winter Holiday of Choice" label.) We have hit a holiday lull between morning present-opening and evening dinner, so [livejournal.com profile] esrblog is taking a nap and I am typing this.

I got some really useful things this year. First on the list is the new LCD monitor for my desktop machine from
[livejournal.com profile] esrblog (which we actually brought home and set up a few weeks ago). From my sister-in-law, I received The Egyptian pack: a lotus-pendant necklace, an Egyptian-style blown glass perfume bottle, and a book about the use of perfumes and scents in Ancient Egypt from my Wish List. Other winners included the DVD of the movie "Elizabeth I" starring Helen Mirren, a Barnes & Noble gift card from my secretary, two historical murder mysteries (also from [livejournal.com profile] esrblog), some housewares from Portugal and a nifty woven water bottle holder from Peru (courtesy of my widely-traveled mother-in-law, who never sits home alone when she can help it) There will be a few more tonight, but that's the bulk of it.

And then there's the Land Shark, which isn't one of my Christmas presents but sure feels like one.
