Christmas Suggestion

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

At Susanna's request I hereby link to my wantlist. If you are determined to give me a physical object rather than donate to a worthy charity or simply wish me happy holidays, you might pool your cash towards this sewing machine which would get a lot of use around these parts. I have a pile of slightly torn clothes that only need five minutes' work with a machine (or me being a putz for hours on end) for repair.

Also, I plan on being in San Francisco the week between Christmas and New Year's (partially because I'm attending a wedding in Oakland just before the year ends), so if you would like to socialize that week, I'll be available.
