All Right, Which One of You Did This?


Those of you who know me personally, most of you anyway, are aware that I collect snow globes. This dorky hobby began about six years ago when a co-worker of mine at REI brought one back for me from the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City (as an expression of ironic humor, mind you - sadly, that globe was long ago lost in a move). Since then I've accumulated about thirty of them, with only one rule, which is that I'm not allowed to purchase the snow globes myself. They must be given to me by any of my frequently traveling friends.

This afternoon, the fine specimen from San Diego which you can see in the photo showed up in my mailbox, with no indication as to who left it. Who are you, mysterious Southern California traveler? I must know...

In unrelated news, this just in: Obama's got Pennsylvania, according to CNN and MSNBC (no word so far from 538 or NYT). This is important, people, Pennsylvania's critical. Now give us Virginia and Ohio... I think we're in for a landslide here!

You Cuz! I swear it wasn't me who sent you that globe. I nearly bought you one from San Francisco one drunken evening last year while walking to the Gold Dust Tavern near Union Square but the lady wouldn't haggle the price down for me.

Drunken snow globe shopping... YES! You get extra points if you pick one up in such an inebriated state that you have to look at it to remember what city you got it in!

Mystery solved: turns out this globe was delivered by my landlord, Mikos, who's living in SD at the moment.
