My parents are buying me a professional French horn! (The one I use currently is owned by the school.) Like this.

Also, I think I have six months worth of new books to read, combining Christmas with my birthday last month. <boggle>

  • Dan Brown - _ Digital Fortress_
  • Robert Jordan - The Great Hunt
  • Charles Dickens - A Tale of Two Cities (I can save this one for last; I've read it before)
  • Tom Clancy - Executive Orders (oy, I read the previous Jack Ryan books a long time ago)
  • Harriet Beecher Stowe - Uncle Tom's Cabin
  • Shakespeare - Othello, The Tempest, Hamlet, Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing (two of these I've already read, though)
  • George R. R. Martin and Lisa Tuttle - Windhaven Plus, I have one gift certificate to Borders and one to Barnes and Noble (from birthday). And the special edition DVD of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Thank you, I felt the need to share that with the world.
