The holidays were very peaceful and nice! I'm back up north now, enjoying the snow that keeps falling and falling outside my window. I go back to work next Thursday, so in the meantime I'm using the time to get back into my routine. (I also got some bad food poisoning last weekend, from which I am still recovering! Not only did that knock me out in its own right, but not being able to drink coffee has put me into some severe caffeine withdrawal. Oy.)

Last night, in my first foray out of doors, I went to a screening of the James Cagney gangster film White Heat. Wow, it was great! I actually just found it on Google Video and am partway through watching it again. I'm excited that the little film museum near me has a great line-up over the next couple months. Lots of good films noir and a series of DeNiro/Scorsese collaborations. I missed Mean Streets on Wednesday, but next week they're showing Taxi Driver. I've seen Taxi Driver a million times but surprisingly, never on film. I'm psyched.

One of the Christmas gifts I received this year was a beautiful, "Caribbean Blue" 6-qt. Dutch Oven from Lodge. I'm ready to christen it this weekend, perhaps with a big pot of lentil soup. It is giant!

I made some neat scores at thrift stores over the holidays, with one of my coolest finds being an old Kodak Brownie camera. It's up on one of the built-ins in our living room, looking all cute. :)

Alright. This whole recovering from sickness/ no-coffee thing is catching up with me again. Off to rest!
