The Christmas Haul / by Jose Barbosa

My Adrian Tomine prints framed, finally.

My iPad with a new funky keyboard thing.

Updates to come.

The anticipation is excruciating.

Update 1: $30 Whitcoulls card. Also accepted at Borders.

Also received: a compilation of The Listener's"much loved" Life In New Zealand column.

It also includes excerpts from Listener writers which means I now own a book that contains the navel gazing of Joanne Black.

"Unless the ad has been in the Listener, my newspaper or on the back of a bus that I have banged into, I probably haven't noticed it."

Insightful stuff there.
