I had a good Christmas.  I gave many satisfactory presents, including
several books because that's what I do.  I got almost all of Jim Butcher's
Dresden Files for Jacob, minus the third one (which is my favorite so far,

Episode Guide to someone who is notoriously hard to shop for (and thinks he
isn't, but if he would stop buying himself everything he likes...), and
found many books for my children as well.

I *got* the new paperbound edition of Terry Pratchett's _The Last Hero_.  I
never imagined I would own this, since the hardcover is hugely expensive,
and I didn't even know about the new one.  It's got extra illustrations and
is simply gorgeous.  If I owned a coffee table, this would be on it.  I also
got extra bits for my Christmas village, yes I do have a light-up Christmas
village, and when I am an old crone like Diana Trent I will no doubt have
one bigger than my house, ahahahaha.  And much chocolate.

Today is my wedding anniversary.  We are celebrating by remembering to

I have to say that being married has overall been far more pleasant than
