The most amusing part, though, is that ana and I bought each other the same book off our respective amazon wish lists. I've read the introduction and one of the stories, and so far, it's excellent. Neil Gaiman once wrote (in his blog, I think) that children are able to handle scary stories in a different way from adults. Adults think kids shouldn't read scary stories, when kids are just fine with them. I read one of these such stories in Noisy Outlaws, etc. Freaked me right the fuck out, but a kid would love it. Does make me want to read more stuff by Kelly Link, though.
We also gave the dog his gift: a stuffed squeaky squirrel. He's been carrying it around and trying to remove its fluffy tail all day. We should give the cats their catnip toys and fill their bowls with smelly canned food.
And now I'm drinking a nice Spanish red wine, after eating an easy-but-tasty dinner. It's been a good day. Perhaps pics will be posted later, when ana figures out how to use hir new toy.
To all who celebrate: Merry Christmas. To those who don't: Have a wonderful weekend.
