One of the birthday presents I received was The Complete Far Side. Yay! Two massive volumes in a slip-case, weighing a ton. I would have liked to show you some favourites, but apparently Gary Larson hates to see his copyright infringed, he has successfully urged every fansite that I've seen to stop displaying his cartoons. 'Tis a pity, but I can't blame him really.

Another present was a large plant, a Stromanthe 'Triostar'. Actually it is way too big for my tiny one-room apartment, but it looks so gorgeous that I am willing to let it eat up some precious space. It has tricolor leaves, green and cream on top and the undersides are exactly the same reddish-purple/purplish-red shade as my carpet. But the only place I could put it is right in front of a radiator. I'm afraid that is going to be a problem when the winter comes. Oh well. We'll see.
