Last week was my birthday, and in addition to a beautiful cake, Dave gave me some pretty good gifts.
The long tube-shaped object, ingeniously disguised as a baseball bat to fool me, is actually...
the James Brown poster from YeeHaw Industries that I have been wanting so much! The other two smaller objects turned out to be Werner Herzog's Conquest of the Useless and the movie Fitzcarraldo (a nice little correlating gift set).
I also got a little bit of money from relatives, so now the fun part is to decide how I want to spend it. Excuse me while I list a few things I've had my eye on...
For one, I love these canisters from Huset,
although I'm not sure what in particular I would store in them. But they're just so nice to look at, I'm sure I would find a practical application for them too.
Or I could pick up a book or two
that I've had on my list for awhile.
Or, maybe I should just use it as spending money in May when I go on vacation.
