ryan is on his way to antarctica. again. however, i haven't heard if he was able to find his camoflage.
lehigh news. apparently a student at lehigh has been arrested for robbing a bank. crazy.
back from my Christmas holiday. it was a fantastic break, many fine presents were exchanged, much food was happily consumed. and tomorrow it's back to work.

strike. no trains, no buses, for who knows how long. and i have to admit, i am surprised not to find any article on the nyc transit strike on the bbc website.

last weekend my mum was in town. we at at falai, the restuarant next door. the food and wine were both great, i would recommend it for anyone looking for a gourmet dinner.
public transit. for those non-new yorkers out there, you may not be aware that there could be a massive transit strike starting on tuesday. this will make getting to work very cold (walking) or much more expensive (cab); and in either case, longer.
Christmas season. today i spent pretty much all day finishing my shopping, wrapping presents and packaging them for mailing, and writing my last Christmas cards. how is it that christmas always sneaks up on me? i'm just happy that its a short work week.

buy nothing christmas catalogue
first snow. we had our first snowfall last night. it was a surprise to wake up to a white coating of everything outside. that means i need to get started on Christmas cards.

this weekend k. was in town. we saw 'beatallica' on friday night at the knitting factory, sustaining only minor hearing loss. yesterday was some walking around the city and central park, in the cold. last night a bunch of us went out for drinks. it was a good time; and all topped off at the lotus with one final drink.
