A gray day, but a holiday nonetheless. We had about five minutes of sun today.

Dec. 25, 2011 - Day 653

We made a mulled wine called "glogg" today. This image from the inside of a cup does a decent job of how the drink makes you feel: bright, warm and a bit fuzzy in the middle.

Creative themed white elephant give from a colleague: bubbly, BublĂ© and a Bobble. Some of my co-workers (who were kind enough not to steal the gift from me) will enjoy having the CD - not my style.

Discovering that we have four pairs of very dull scissors led to a new pair.

Mmm... gingersnaps!

Dec. 2, 2011 - Day 630

Christmas lights can lead to impressionist photography. In other words, it's really hard to hold the camera still without a tripod. I think this looks like hefty dragon.
