I hope you had a nice holiday.
Because I was nice and not naughty, I got several presents. One is a book just published by a leading psychologist who won the Nobel Prize; it is called "Thinking, Fast and Slow." The book explores how we think and was named one of the Top 10 Best Books of 2011.
Another gift I received is a tin of caviar. Have you ever had caviar? This is the real stuff, not low-priced imitation. Because it costs $3,900 per pound, I asked for only a small amount (1 oz.). I plan to savor it with great concentration. You're welcome to come over and try some -- but you better hurry!
I also asked for and received artisanal sausage. It tastes so good it transcends the category of food. Rich flavors, like fennel, explode in your mouth and provide sensual delight. Yumm!
I also got front-row seats for a new Broadway play called Relatively Speaking. The show is in two weeks; I'll let you know if it deserves the rave reviews it received.
What did you do for Christmas? Did you get any nice gifts? Please share!
P.S., Thank you to Wendy for the lovely b/w top and jewelry. And thanks to my BFF Jen for three bottles of sparkly nail-polish. You'll see both gifts here on the blog soon!
P.P.S., Oh, and thank you to Alya for the Victoria's Secret giftcard. Believe it or not, I've never been in VS before, even though there's one in the mall down the block from my house. Propelled by Alya's generosity, I went in there today -- and spent a fun hour looking at all the lingerie and clothes. What a pleasant surprise.
