I got a Kindle for Christmas. I'm not one that is terrified by the e-volution of reading. Probably a lot of this has to do with the fact that my book has done really well as an e-book. I like that. I like paper, too, but so far I've quite enjoyed reading on my Kindle. Observe:
What's that? You can't get Supernaturally on your e-reader?
NO, NO YOU CAN'T. HA HA HA HA.
I also got a house for Christmas. Observe:
I love the stairs. Is that weird?
One of the fun things about finally owning, besides all of the moneymoneymoney you have to keep shelling out for every little thing, is being able to decorate however you want. And my decorating sensibilities leave nothing wanting. I'm all about class and convention. Observe:
Lord of the Rings sword replica as jewelry holder? CHECK.
Dacchian Wolf-Dragon wooden spoon wall decor? CHECK.
The best quilt EVER in my still-being-put-together office, along with one of the cardboard floor stands? CHECK.
I also got a brilliant television series for my husband, and the brilliant Steph Perkins got a toy for me. Observe:
Sherlock! AND SHERLOCK!
But what's that, you say? That doesn't look like a traditional Sherlock head? No, no it isn't. Observe:
Benedict! It IS you! Of course Steph would think of the only possible way to improve on a Sherlock Holmes action figure.
Sherlock is supposed to live on my desk and whisper snarky observations in my ear as I'm writing, but since I don't have my desk set up yet I decided to play with him. Sadly, we didn't get very far.
Me: "Wanna play something?"
Sherlock: "The game is afoot!"
Me: "I'll take that as a yes. Let's play Clue!"
Sherlock: "It was Colonel Mustard in the Observatory with the lead pipe."
Me: "But I haven't even opened the box yet!"
Sherlock: *annoyed stare that questions my intelligence*
Me: "I hate you."
Just kidding, Sherlock. I love you. But you're no fun to play games with.
So, what was your favorite Christmas gift? Did you get a set of stairs with a big, bright window, too? Or an action figure that questions your intelligence on a daily basis but that you love anyway because he's just so adorably brilliant? Or an e-reader that you can't get Supernaturally on yet?
HA HA HA HA HA.
Whoops. Sorry. Sometimes that smug laughter just spills out and I can't help it. Observe! This is me, shutting up.
