Despite a somewhat crappy shift at work, things are okay. It's a new year, but in reality, nothing much has changed at all. I arrived home to Christmas cards from Aubrey and Laurie - thanks girls, they really made my day! Also a letter from my friend Greg, who's up fruitpicking in the Riverland; I need to write back to him soon. Over all; nothing too exciting, but I can't say I'm in any sort of slump just yet. This is a good thing. Survivor is on tonight, and to the extent of the excitement in my life right now, it's a toss up to decide whether watching Survivor, or buying a copy of "The Fellowship of the Rings" this afternoon would be the highlight of my day.
