Here’s my Christmas tree, all lit up, next to the dining room table, which is currently home to Greg‘s electric train. You’ll also notice the Santa salt and pepper shakers in the foreground in front of a crystal bowl of ornaments. The illustration hanging on the wall is from Jingle Dancer, a gift from illustrators Cornelius Van Wright and Ying-Hwa Hu.
My presents from Greg included a couple of thoughtful nods to the Tantalize series–an amethyst angel and The New Annotated Dracula by Bram Stoker, with commentary by Leslie S. Klinger and introduction by Neil Gaiman (W.W. Norton: October 2008).

More Cynsational Notes
It’s a rainy, cold Christmas here in Austin, but nobody minds. What with the drought, we’re happy to see the grass green and water back in Shoal Creek.
“Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” — wonderful! Better than the original!
