Post christmas blah  
The day after is always so anticlimactic. The presents are all open, though most are sitting under the tree. I have no idea where I'm going to put my new "Complete Costume History" -- it weights a ton (that was the mystery present). It's awesome, full of hundreds of pictures of European fashion since the Renaissance. I could page through it for hours, and it's a great resource for fic writing in earlier times. But it's so huge it won't fit on the bookshelf, even if I had room for it, which I don't.

Short person made out like a bandit of course, with the helpful assistance of many indulgent grandparents. Yesterday he was so hyped up on sugar and new toys he didn't sleep until almost 10 pm. And of course, he refused to eat any Christmas dinner.

My two fics for yuletide were well received by their recipients so YAY. The short one is in a bit bigger fandom and has had some more notice, which is very gratifying on a piece I wrote in - um - an hour.

I think I'm getting the hang of writing short fics. I blame lj. ;)

Believe it or not, a few years ago, I saw an exhibition on custume history and fashion at the Museum of Natural History in NYC. It was an amazing exhibition.

Happy New Year
