The Other Side
Family on two coasts: visited.
Gifts wrapped and unwrapped: yes.
Thank You notes: most written and sent.
Emergency back up gifting for people who surprised me with gifts: tomorrow, a la Harry and David.
Books read so far: Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim (Courduroy? Courdoroy? ...), Perdido Street Station.
Books left to read: In a Sunburned Country, The Golden Age, The Phoenix Exultant, and anything else I get my grubby mits on.
Bags lost by Delta: 1.
Bags successfully arrived on same flight: 1.
Number of forms I handed to people in line waiting for baggage claim forms: 7.
Explanations I gave about how baggage claim forms could be filed: 2.
Satisfaction that I am in law school, on vacation, successfully home, and not working for Delta, the day after the Comair debacle (Fortran???): high.
Enjoyment from 2005 summer associate holiday gifts: elation and surprise at the first, a collection of random holiday stuff; serious adoration for the firm who sent the second, a bottle of coveted wine that is already sold out. I'm slightly leaning towards firm two as of now (they've obviously got my number). Stay tuned.
Happiness at the plans for a New Year's sunny beach destination: immeasurable.
