Was woken up too early and sat, blinking, on a couch, as the family opened presents -- some fun, some cool, some goofy: Mike and Holly got me an electronic picture receiver, for example, which will apparently download 30 images for me a night. My wife gave me a new Swiss Army Watch, and she and Maddy got me the two volumes of the art of Maurice Sendak. My assistant got me smoked salmon.
And I have to go -- Maddy and I are going to listen to the anniversary Just a Minute on Radio 4 now. Hurrah for the Internet.
