The Glorious Ninth

Kit and I didn't exchange too many gifts but we did treat ourselves to a couple nice things.

First, we picked up Orange Box (aka Portal plus other stuff). We actually bought it a while ago but didn't have a chance to play it before the holidays.

Wow, what a well-written game! It seems at once so simple yet so crafted. And I enjoyed the cake immensely.

The second gift is symphony tickets. We're going to see Beethoven's Ninth at the Seattle Symphony tonight. A favorite piece of classical music for me and Kit. It's one of those pieces that can be so powerful when you hear it live, too.

I forget the descriptive phrase from A Clockwork Orange... "Gloriousness and gloriosity"?
