Hi, I'm back! Photos from the trip east should be up shortly. In the meantime, here's a link to one of my presents. Hee.

The Guardian ran a contest in which people were asked to send in photos of their office holiday celebrations. There's a summary of the best ones, but the whole gallery's up as well. (Page 3 has a Dalek nativity scene!)

Possible belated xmas or upcoming Chanukah gift ideas: Nabaztag, a little rabbit that can tell you the weather or read your email, and cakes from Debbie, who constructs amazing confections like a dead rat cake and a treasure chest cake. Ooo. Ahhh.

Fun for a slow week at work: the Patent Room is filled with wacky (true!) ideas. Who knew people could be so creative?

And finally, a correction to an earlier post: it's turned out that the story about the Dartmouth student getting a visit from the FBI over a book was a hoax. That's a relief.

Glad to hear of your fun Christmas Holiday. I hope the package was a big hit. Thanks for the creepy flicks! Enjoy the swinging New Year!

Joseph,

We were good little imps (for a change) and waited until xmas evening to open the package you sent us. :) Thanks a million for the flicks & book! They are very appreciated and we're looking forward to celebrating my upcoming b-day with a bad movie fest as well (so they are doubly timely).

Cheers,
Brian
