Nope, didn't do it after all

It has been raining all day. I hate being out in the rain. I hate driving in rain. I decided not to go out, after all. Guess that means I'll be joining the last minute shoppers on Friday as I have that day off.

I ordered two Hawaiian shirts, one for me and one for the SO. Mine will be red like the picture, the SO has the same print but on a black background. What you might not be able to see well from the picture, is that the shirt design, in addition to the pointsettias, has red "Woodies" with a surfboard sticking out of them, sitting on large leaves. It's priceless. And for a Southern California Christmas, perfect.

I'm re-reading The Fountainhead and doing laundry.

Don't forget, tomorrow I'll be putting up the last Monday Meme of the year.

The Fountainhead.

You got my attention. Good stuff, that.

Merry Christmas, Dawno.

I liked wearing hawaiian shirts more when I lived where it snowed. Now I like wearing turtlenecks and praying it will drop into the 60s.

Just finished it tonight. I have the 50th anniversary re-issue - it has some interesting excerpts from her journals about the process of writing the book. In one spot she wrote "Do not dialogue thoughts. Control adjectives--cut the weakening ones. Do not use adjectives unless they are different and illuminating." Sounds like good advice.

Merry Christmas to you, Mark (and all you lurkers)
