I’m scheduling this to post the 22nd, since I’ll be travelling that day and will inevitably fall asleep on the sofa the moment I arrive home and probably forget to post. I don’t have a lot to say, except to show off probably the best Christmas gift I’ve ever received:

Toddler with teddy bear.
Me & Oski!

This is my teddy, Oski (of the University of California Golden Bears), a gift from graduate school friends of my father. As you can tell from this picture, Oski and I have made quite a pair for almost 30 years now. He’s in Baltimore with me, but due to some, um, structrual integrity issues, no longer really travels back to Chicago. In terms of longevity, cost-per-use, and general adorableness, he’s been a pretty hard one to top.

Oski, me, Dad
