Here's all the crap I ordered (see the 12/17 entry), finally unwrapped. Took me over an hour just to open all the packages. Two of the sweaters (black ones, which I most needed) didn't fit at all (and so now to go through the eBay hassle of trying to re-sell); the "Hollywood backlot" and "Long Tail" books I wouldn't have ordered again. The two sweaters in the top row, far left, I really liked; I also really liked "The Story of Hollywood" and "Pronoia" books. I'd been debating whether to wait to Christmas to open everything -- glad I just went ahead and did it now; nothing was grand enough to make for joy on Christmas, and the packages were junking up my living room.
