here are my picks for the new year's day sale at my local auction house:
and here's the news from these parts:
-i went to see "the king's speech" yesterday and it was really good...go see it!
-after the movie we had sushi. also good.
-and before sushi we went to the bookstore and i got this book. it's excellent and a fairly easy read. the author shares individual stories from north koreans who have defected to south korea while detailing the history of the place mostly since the take over by kim il-sung. i'm learning a lot and i'm struck by the near complete brain-washing that goes on in north korea.
-today i'm making a pot roast, finishing some mittlets i designed myself! (they are super simple but still i'm proud of them), reading my 2 books, keeping the fire going in the woodstove and maybe snowshoeing if i work up the motivation.
it's been a nice vacation week. what have you been up to?
