Sorry about the poor photography. A better version would show that this key chain has a countdown window, to the second, of the Bush term of office. It's been around a while, but it's still one of my best Christmas presents. Also: new shirt, books, iPod earphones, some great chutney, a toy truck to add to my small collection and an afternoon of happy feasting with friends and family.
I hope everyone else did as well.
Open line. We'll be back at work tomorrow to put out one last edition of the Times for 2006.
