Quickly, before the street-sweeper of the mind, sleep, claims me:

I decorated my office for Christmas this morning. A (false) pine garland runs around the rim of the cubicle, festooned with fairy lights, which also climb the archway which serves as the entrance to our little space. It looks very cool.

I also watched the first two episodes of Nadia and the Secret of the Blue Water, which fulfilled my expectations. It’s a wonderful, Miyazaki-like series, though it lacks his brilliance and subtlety. It plays off of innocence and joi de vivre, without being juvenile. Lovely.

My parents and I did a little bit of Christmas decorating around the house, too. We’ll probably put up our traditional two trees tomorrow.

I’ve been ripping mp3’s from our Christmas albums (for personal use only). I’ve now got over eight hours’ worth of Christmas music in mp3 form. I’m considering running speaker cables from my room to the living room, so we can play any kind of music at any time of the day, based off of an mp3 collection on a BeOS box running TuneTracker.

I’ve also made a little bit of progress on Landscape, though not much.
