greedy show-and-tell
December 25, 2003

i am the proud new owner of a Hello Kitty Cruiser. yes, it kicks even my ass. i can't wait for spring to come so i can ride it around and around and around. i took it for a little spin tonight, and let me tell you, it is too damned weird to brake with the pedals. you know, like pedalling backwards makes the bike stop. whoah. and i can ride it while sitting up straight, instead of hunched over, like on normal mountain or street bikes. sweetness.

i was also given a truckload (like seriously, folks) of too-kawaii hello kitty merch, including candies, pens and pencils galore, a hello kitty in kimono figure, bento items, pajamas, shirts, a clock, and much much more. i am too blessed to have people in my life that know exactly what i want - anything kawaii. i was seriously squealing at every package that i opened. it was almost sick, in a way.

okay, enough of the "me, me, me" bullshit - i hope everyone will have a lovely christmas, if you are inclined to do so. it is only the 6th day of channukah, so i hope that everyone has a wonderful 2 days of candle-lighting left. oh, and don't be dumb dumb dumb like me... ben and i own 3 channukias, 1 for oil, and 2 for candles. the wick floats for the oil channukia are too big to float on the oil, so we've just been setting them atop the glass. well, the other night, one wick decided to deposit a bunch of oil on top of the float, so when the wick got to burning, it lit pretty much the whole float on fire. i decided to blow it out, and it decided to fly across the room like a v. dangerous firefly. hilarity ensued when ben stomped out the burning wick, float, and oil upon the floor, and i spent the next day carefully cutting the v. top of the melted carpet off so the floor doesn't have a nice black spot on it. don't let this happen to you - stick with the candles, and don't leave the room when they're burning. keep a close eye on the fire - it can quickly get out of hand.

I want to go bicycling with you. Except I want to ride your bike, so I guess you'll have to stay home.


Happy Holidays.
