So it happens things come full circle.
By O Henry is one of my very very favorite stories. This illustration is from one of my very favorite illustrators Lisbeth Zwerger.
Tonite my Christmas Eve has gone full circle. When I first moved to Philadelphia, I went to see Lord of the Rings: Two Towers on Christmas Eve. It snowed, I had never seen snow so I used an umbrella. Tonite J.R. Tolkein turned into J.K. Rowling and I waited to see Harry Potter. But this time I had a fellow west coaster in tow, so now after a bottle of red wine, I am very glad. That Ron and Samwise Gangee had something to illuminate the nite with, Nerd Alert.
XXX Merry Xmas.
