I used to loathe this time of year. Cold and dark and dreary. But then I figured out it was the perfect time to hang out, be lazy, read books, make stuff. Between that resolve and the strangely warm, sunny winter we're having (and a trip to SF and nonstop watching of the Olympics), well, time flies when you're having fun.
I got a new camera. I loved my old Cybershot, but wow, my new Cybershot takes crisp photos effortlessly. Plus, it's tiny.
