aren’t they pretty little things, the cookies? they were one of the highlights of the xmas party that i tagged along during my NY visit… it was a rather hilarious evening that saw me segment a dead and roasted chicken (not with quite the same level of gentle carefulness as i had to render in neuroanatomy practical class some years ago but the result was edible nonetheless!), witness with trepidation the seemingly-harmless (?!) ‘harrassment’ of an infant akin to brute-machiavellian tactics (some adults have the tendency to think kids as toys… a little traumatizing for the onlooker), saw lots of silly picture snapping next to a little xmas tree… being mused by people exchanging/barter-trading their xmas gifts received from a random xmas gift-exchange… and being reminded of the coolest motto:
“Dance as though no one is watching you,
love as though you have never been hurt before,
sing as though no one can hear you,
live as though heaven is on earth.
… what was your x’mas like?
