In other news, the latest New Yorker (the Jan. 17th issue) has a very excellent article about Miyazaki in it. I highly recommend it to all of you. I don't know, maybe I'm overly patrician, but it makes me happy whenever anime receives good recognition from serious mainstream critics.
Last night my office had its holiday party (I know, it's a bit late, but there's got to be a holiday somewhere around about this time of the year...), and there was a door prize drawing, in which I won a $50 gift card to Best Buy. So I think there may be some anime in my future.
And, uncreativity: Are you missing a pair of sunglasses? I found a pair in my trunk yesterday, and I think they might be yours.
