I still have a couple of non-obligatory gifts I want to buy for friends, but they are easy because I know what I want to get.
My brother called me tonight for no other reason than that he wanted to talk to me. I'm not sure if this has ever happened before. We used to talk once a week, but that ended a couple of years ago, and it was something I always had to push. I felt honored that he wanted to talk to me. We made a date to talk again next week. He said he misses me. My mind boggles. I mean, I think of him often and he's one of the most important people in my life, but I've never really gotten the impression that the feeling is entirely mutual. It feels good.
I'm thinking about using some of my dad's money to go out and visit them in Florida next year. It would just be me, most likely, because Shannon doesn't like to travel, so I wouldn't be able to do it at Christmas, but it'll have to be sometime when the weather is relatively cool. I hate hot weather.
I've decided that I'm going to sell my Wolf's Rain after Lisa and I finish watching it. It's just not so good that I can see myself wanting to watch it over and over. I'm sorry I bought it. Well, maybe I can get half the money back by selling it on eBay.
Well, I'm off to read Lord of Light.
